First night of our holiday. Our first impressions were low as we tend to avoid places with bouncy castles and kids entertainment but the food was spot on. Freshly made and well presented. Good service too.

Monster ribs and a cocktail for me. This place is getting better and better, need to book for 8 as it's gets busy in the summer. It's a bit out of town, but worth the trip.

Another great restaurant in Alvor. A bit of a walk up the hill past the hospital but worth the effort. Like most places in Alvor the staff are first class. So polite and nothing's a bother to them.
