We found this restaurant on the last night of our holiday...it was very busy so the waitress asked if we would like to come back in 30mins and that she'd keep a table...so glad we went back. We shared a couple of starters my husband had steak which was cooked as he asked...medium. My Daughter and I had the Americano... More

After my disappointing, greasy cheese and garlic crostini starter I decided to have the all you can eat ribs that came with homemade 'BBQ' sauce. I made it through two/three ribs but the quality of the meat was so poor I began to feel sick, the sauce was not BBQ at all! This restaurant is an overpriced ripoff, that even... More

It was better than average, but not quite up to "Very good"! Slightly unusual interior décor, but that's not a problem. The rib-eye offer wasn't available, but there was a sirloin alternative, and the steaks were cooked as we wanted and tender. The young lady serving was polite and efficient. Overall, we paid €30 including beer and a tip, which... More

After looking at the menu a few times we decided to pop in for what we assumed was a hearty traditional 'quality steak house' experience. What we got was a sloppy greasy and fatty little chef. As we are nearing the end of our holiday in the Algarve we fancied something a bit closer to home. Being on a tight... More

I was not a steak eater but friends were so I agreed to try one. Had a fillet steak medium with mushroom sauce. If I had ever had steak in England like this then I would always eat steak. I must admit that it was medium to rare but it was beautiful . It was so good we went back... More

We had tried a number of restaurants in Alvor, and tried this for our last night (always a risk). But to be fair, all those who ordered meat got a very good meal. Spare ribs were very good - it just needed a better BBQ sauce which is a shame because the meat was done to a very good standard.... More

We dined here on our last night in Alvor and have to say if you are a lover of meat you are in for a treat. went for the rib eye medium rare only criticism was my steak was over salted. But an enjoyable meal all the same.

Ordered steaks of course (recommend restaurant for steaks!) although my wife's steak was edible but tough mine was tainted with scent and over-salted, I could not eat mine after a few bites - complained but only received a shrug. Charged us full price and expensive. The service was dismissive, the setting a bit dour and the restaurant virtually empty (why... More

Unfriendly staff. Wouldnt recommend bringing children. Expensive. Asked for steak well done, came out with fresh blood in middle. Sent it back to cook another bit but came out more or less the same and couldnt eat same and so had to pay for meal but came out as hungry as we went in
