“Beautiful meal and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We chose Buzio for a special night out after being there for a wedding last year. The food last year was spectacular and we hoped that the normal menu would be at the same high standard. We were not disappointed! The entire restaurant has a quality feel about it and the little touches by the chef and staff add to that sense. Between courses the chef sent out little taster dishes which gave the sense that we ate a lot more than we paid for. Our main courses were fabulous in terms of quality and quantity (monkfish and fillet steak).

After our meal the owner came around to meet all his guests and this allowed us pass our positive comments regarding our experience to him directly.

A restaurant deserving of its Number 1 Tripadvisor status!

“The food is superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Nine of us went there last night for a meal and everyone thought the food was fantastic. It is a bit more expensive but worth every euro.you are getting fine dining for the price of a very ordinary restaurant in England. Our bill came to 62 Euros per person including the tip. We all had wine with our meal. Some of the party went for the feast which consisted of four courses. I had the crepe with shrimp and spinach to start and had rack of lamb for my main course both of which were so tasty. The staff are really friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“High class food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is the best quality restaurant in Alvor. Stunning view across the bay to Lagos and the sunset and wonderful "Michelin" type food. Run by owner / chef Gilberto and an excellent professional staff. Do go there !

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Simply wonderful. Staff first class. Ambience unsurpassed. Food excellent and a view of a sunset over the beach to die for. Not the cheapest to visit bit certainly one of the best. The wine list is extensive and we will certainly put this on our to do list next year.
