We ate here three times recently when we visited Praia da Rocha, the food was excellent as always. The highlight was the brilliant rack of lamb to share between two. Service is impeccable, which is quite a rarity nowadays.

cant really complain but something is lacking perhaps id prefer nice freshly cooked vegetables and not the ratatouille type that they serve no one other thing Despite spending a nice amount of money (we had three bottles of wine ) among four of us This restaurant doesn't offer a complimentary after dinner Port or whatever

Been going here for the last ten years. Good Portuguese atmosphere and service. Service and food consistently good. Wide range of meats and fish. However, for me the Strawberry Flambé desert is divine. The waiter prepares and cooks the strawberries in brandy, Cointreau and Grand Marnier. The smell whets the appetite but the taste is superb. Try it.

Re-visited this restaurant after about 15 years since the last time. The food and service were still excellent, great steak and by the look of it great fish dishes too. The menu is 'classic' and served beautifully. Flambé desserts are a speciality here and from what we saw just watching the art of the preparation was entertainment in itself. 7... More

Proper table cloths and excellent service makes you feel you are having a special dining experience. Fish is good and steaks are delicious. They were super attentive to our children. We love it here.

We have been visiting Alvor for 23 years and always visit Por do Sol at least twice in our week. The staff never fail for be welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is spotlessly clean with the most beautiful table linen and cutlery. The waiters are always smart and nothing is too much trouble. The kitchen is open (but never noisy)... More

As regular visitors to Alvor Por do Sol is always on our list of places to go and this time lived up to its usual high standards. We were a little nervous that this restaurant might be too formal for us to take our little toddler to but we had no need to worry. We were all given a very... More

This is an old fashioned Portuguese restaurant staffed by experienced waiters who are unfailingly polite. When the temperature drops they have an open fire. The beef cooked in the oven with potatoes and a crust in port wine sauce was excellent and the chef was happy to make two reduced size portions of stroganoff for my ancient parents.
