70s revival!

Advocado and prawns for starter and flambe crepes for dessert served by good humoured waiters in black tie and DJ - you get the idea.

Staff have been the same for years and now know us by name. Always have dinner here usually twice during our stay. Great food especially the Lamb in herbs or the Chateaubriand served for two. There are a selection of crepe desserts that are fab. Worth a visit.

Here is a restaurant that has withstood the test of time whether You choose it for lunch or dinner. Ample parking is a plus with interior ambiance pleasant and graceful. Good selection of Portugese and other dishes served in fine style in an enjoyable atmosphere. Perhaps a cut above in pricing, but well worth it.

We (4 Golfers) back in 2008/9) played golf at Penina Golf Resort for my 60th Birthday. On a chance meeting in a pub we told of this restaurant by a Scottish ex pat. We went back a second time during our stay and returned again in Jan 2015 with 4 more golfers. The ambiance is 5 star, the meals 5star... More

A group of eight golfers stayed in Alvor for a week in March eating out in local restaurants every evening. Por Do Sol was undoubtedly the best restaurant we visited - we went there twice. You are welcomed in an attractive dining room with clean white table cloths and given just the right amount time to choose from an extensive... More

4 of us enjoyed Dinner here.a vast selection of dishes makes it so difficult to choose.We enjoyed perfectly ripe avocados, a sumptuous Chateaubriand cooked to perfection and Crepe Suzette becoming of a major London Restaurant of the 70's. A fabulous experience masterly controlled by Candido and his Head Chef Paolo. We will return. Surely Alvor's future Number 1

Visited on a Saturday evening, in a group of eight golfers. We always come here for end of holiday meal. As always the service was superb, nice varied menu with typical Portugese dishes. Eight happy diners already looking forward to next year 😊

Have been returning to this restaurant year after year with my family since I can remember. I have tried nearly every item on the menu and nothing has disappointed, not one thing. A particular favourite is the steak Portuguese style. Friendly and welcoming service by all staff with a great ambiance inside and outside. The only fault is that it's... More

Went first time with friends who were regulars and enjoyed it so much we returned. Whether fish or meat all the dishes were good. As were the puddings and starters.
