“Fantastic fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Our family has been using this restaurant for approximately 10 years and have never been disappointed. Quite rustic inside with wooden tables and benches but don't let that put you off, it just adds to the charm. The Green Door as most people know it by, serves the best fish in Alvor at very reasonable prices Fransisco & Miquel are always welcoming.. If you are looking for great variety this place is not for you but if you love fish served simply I would highly recommend. I have marked it down for families with children only because of space, fine for older children but probably not best for buggys and have not seen any highchairs.

“this the best in Alvor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Really shouldnt tell anyone about this restaurant as it makes it more difficult to get into but having read all the reviews i have to recommend this wonderful place to eat and is the essesnce of what Alvor is all about friendly and charming.
We are going to Alvor for the past 7 years and sometimes twice a year. We love going to see Fransisco and his wonderful staff, The fish is so fresh here you would think it jumped on to your plate. Not on the menu (should be) are the garlic prawns....... to die for. the house wine served in 1/2 litre or 1 litre jugs is very drinkable. The restauant is in an old winery which is like a coachhouse with a loft. Most of the tables are bench like with stools alongside which makes dining a communal pleasure ang if you are the sociable type i can gaurantee you will make friends here for life( we have). Try carob cake for dessert it is special and not something one gets on menus. Fransisco and his loyal crew do a fantastic job to make you feel welcome and at home. I would recommend booking especially for the weekend nights and high season.
Fransisco sources his catch of the day daily and i have eaten magnificent sole, succulent tuna , bream and halibut here. If you like fish this is the place for you and you will be even more pleasantly surprised when you see the bill! Take a bow Fransisco,Miguel and co.
