“Back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Not sure whether we go to Alvor for the beach or for the food. This restaurant was a new discovery on our last visit and it has not disappointed on our return. Wonderful food for us all, pork, duck and swordfish - yum yum. Two female chefs, wish they worked in my house. Lovely intimate atmosphere too.

“A real hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Took a while to find, but well worthwhile. We were the only people in the restaurant at the start and menu was limited. The food however was excellent - the recommended lamb chops were well cooked and flavoursome, the dover sole was superb. The waiter and chef were friendly - we had a half bottle of wine and two glasses of port free. Really enjoyed our meal. Don't be put off by the outside, well worth a visit.

“Varied menu reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Staff were very attentive and food was good. The decor is very classy and the free half bottle of wine was an added bonus. Definitely one to try.

“Quirky but well worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We saw this place on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try. In our party of 4 peple we had one Celiac so it was a bit of a challenge to get her the right things to eat. The Salsa Bistro seems to be decorated like a bar in Krakow, Poland but the food is definitely more international. I had the sword fish which almost filled the dinner plate and all the meals came with a side dish of vegetables. Overall it was a very good meal and we shall certainly be going back to sample the food again.
