Dom Pipas was the very first restaurant we visited in Alvor several years ago, and we always go back there for a meal at least once during our stay. The food cannot be faulted, however, the service can be slow at times. This is a small place with traditional decor and quite brightly lit, so not really good if tou... More

Some of the other reviews state that the service is slow, which is a little unfair, sure its not glitz and glamour, and features a local TV showing rolling portugese news! However during our stay on Alvor we went there 3 times as the food was superb and the waitress (sorry didnt get your name!) was always very helpfull. We... More

We had great food and the service was attentive without being over the top. The house red wine was excellent and cheap and if things were a little slow, it certainly seemed... More

food gorgeous,we had various dishes such as chicken,salmon, pork kebab which my husband craved for the rest of the holiday and fillet on the stone for myself which i loved cooking myself. the only downside was the really slow service, we had 2kids with us and they were getting really irritable and hungry.
