This is a high class resturant with excellent food and ambience but at affordable prices. I had duck and my husband had fillet steak with wine and a pudding and just a little over 40 euros for 2. Excellent waiters and service. Well worth it. Great experience q

Our holidays on the Algarve are never complete without at least one visit to see Candido at Por do Sol. Excellent food and top class service.

Smart Portuguese restaurant with wonderful quality food and wine. Pleasant efficient staff. Indoor and outdoor dining options with a nice garden area useful for the children to play in during the warm months.

We always return to this Restaurant and have always found the food , service and hospitality excellent. Notwithstanding that I feel sure that the management would like to hear of any shortcomings as changes to custom and practice can sometimes mean that a Restaurant can soon lose its well deserved reputation . It may be a one off but we... More

Por do Sol is always on our list to visit when we go to Alvor every year. However, this year we were really lucky as we were staying just opposite at Vila Marachique. Candido and Rui always greet their guests like long lost friends and offer help and guidance when choosing from the menu. The dining room is simple elegance..beautiful... More

We arrived 15 minutes before they opened at 19.00, that did not matter, we were welcomed like old friends by Candido, even though this was our first visit. We had booked an outside table, but were offered the choice of inside if we wished. There was never any rush, and the advice given and suggestions were helpful Now the food.... More

Go here every time we are in Alvor. Always good service, always good food. Just take care if you are walking to it - the pavements aren't great for the last 20 meters.

Candido, the head waiter, was extremely helpful, and remembered our family from last years visit. It's worth a trip to the restaurant, it's only a very short taxi drive to the restaurant. The French onion soup is truly special, the steaks are delicious, grilled sole was also very good. The flambé desserts are special too!
