“Busy place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

This is a very busy restaurant, so we had to try it? The food is good but the waiting time for service was so long we nearly left!! It did appear that there was not enough staff on our visit to cope with the demand, but if your happy to sit in a great location then give it a go.

“well worth a visit to this restaurant with a seaview”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

A Ribeira is a lovely spacious restaurant with a sea view. There are a few tables outdoors but most are inside. We found the waiter to be very friendly and happy to give us advice and information about local fish, traditional dishes and piri piri sauce. There is a BBQ outdoors where most of the cooking is done.We ate Cataplana a traditional fish and seafood stew which was delicious . The vino verde white wine was also very good. We will definitely return to this restaurant during our next holiday in Alvor.
