Don't ususally eat in British restaurants when on holiday, but after reading reviews, thought we were missing out, so we had to try it.
We tried on a Sunday evening, but totally forgot it was Sunday and the place was fully booked for the Sunday roast, I would recommend you book if this is what you want. The roast wasn't the reason we tried this, so tried again later on that week and so glad we did.
It is not situated on the main 'strip' but is a very short distance away from all the hustle. Our first visit was for lunch and because it was our last day of the holiday I think my family really missed British food. My husband commented on how brilliant the omellette was saying it was the best he ever had. The kids and I had typical lunch food, toasties, chips with cheese and they were so yummy!
Food so good and brilliant value for money we asked owners to book a table for that night. To our surprise they asked if there was anything specifically we would like as they were going shopping that afternoon and it didn't have to be on the menu. You will never get that service anywhere - first class.
On arrival for dinner, owners greeted us with open arms and the good service and quality of food kept to the usual high standard. We all went for fish or scampi dishes, quite simple, but tasted fantastic.
To top it off non-alcoholic cocktails were as good as the alcholic ones so the full family joined in!
Owners clearly love working and living in Alvor and take time out to talke to customers, they made you feel very wlecome and valued. We will be back here next time we're in Alvor, only wish we hadn't waited until the end of our holiday before visiting this restaurant.
