Visited here last night with 7 other members of my family. Food was fantastic especially the salmon and the confit of duck. Would highly recommend these dishes. The waiting staff were so friendly and made the little person in our group feel very special. We found this place by luck but will definitely be visiting again. Thank You!

The first thing you'll notice is the massive bouncy castle outside. That sets the tone for this restaurant, it's built around fun! They have a pool table and darts inside and even a nice fish tank. The service is friendly and the place is renowned for its ribs, even offering a rob challenge! The food is okay, and it took... More

I have eaten at Big Reds many times over the last few years. The standard has always been good. Tonight I'm here again for the second time in two days. Why? Well the service is excellent, provided by friendly attentive staff, the menu improvements this year are well thought out and the food is well prepared and presented with care.... More

Great restaurant, a little out of Alvor, but definitely worth the detour. Food delicious & a lot to choose from (can recommend the stone steaks and the ribs). We have visited twice during out stay and both times have had a lovely evening. Staff are lovely too!

Took our friends with us to Big Reds and we had a fabulous three course meal sat outside on a warm sultry night. All starters were great, the fillet steak was out of this world, I can honestly say we have never had a bad one here. The desserts were not the run of the mill which is a lovely... More

We had a lovely meal here on our holiday. The children were served their food with our starters and went and played on the bouncy castle. It's a family friendly restaurant and the staff were very nice.

We had a meal at Big Reds a few days ago. Firstly I would say overall it was a lovely meal. Sadly though the ribs didn't live up to my full expectation based on other reviews..i found them just a tad fatty. My husband however loved the Porterhouse steak. Staff were great and surroundings very nice. I would definitely return... More
