I had used this bar before a few years ago and the same people are still running it. Excellent happy hour and very friendly, welcoming owners. Despite much choice in Alvor we ended up in here for a least part of the night, every night.

The team are friendly and chatty and the atmosphere is great. They also do a simple lunch menu during the day and play sports on TV screens throughout the day... More

We visited this bar every day on our holiday. Prices were great (90 cents for a large Super Bock), atmosphere was nice and the service couldn't be beaten. The two members of staff who served us on our visits were very friendly, very efficient and couldn't be faulted in any way - a BIG shout out for Jonny and Luiza... More
