“Great value and fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We always eat here at least once each time we visit Alvor.
The sea bass is beautifully fresh and great value. Does come served with head and tail, even if you ask for filleted, so beware!The clams and prawns for starters are a must.
Service wasn't brilliant last visit, but somehow that doesn't seem to matter so much at the Green Door!
Worth checking out if you want to eat in a more traditional style restaurant.

“Best restaurant in Alvor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Just returned from 11 days in Alvor, the entire family agreed the Green Door was the best place to eat (so good we ate there twice). Fantastic friendly service, reasonable prices, great atmosphere. The prawns were stunning, the Portuguese steak great and our 12 year old loved the spaghetti. It's just off the main street but worth searching out.

“Great informal dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We visited the Taverna do Guedes one evening and were lucky to get the last table for 2. We were sat in the little alcove by the stairs. The restaurant was busy, and there was a great atmosphere. We had the cover and then both chose the golden bream. The golden bream were cooked simply, and were served with potatoes and veg. The fish were excellent value, at E13 each. There seemed to be quite a few locals in while we were eating which is always a good sign. I would highly recommend the Taverna do Guedes, particularly if you enjoy fish.

“second visit a disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Our first visit was fine.We had tuna which was delicious.Vegetables very plain.
The second time it was dreadful.They had very little fish left and asked did we want to share a large seabass.We specifically asked for it to be filleted.They had taken the large bone out but all the rest were left.There was barely enough fish for one and were very abrupt when we complained.
