Yes an unusual mixture for a Sunday in Alvor with the sun shining bright! This monthly mix was well attended mainly by British local ex pats. The singer was brilliant started with C&W the moved on after the line dance to 60's to 80's songs. The roast was good but cool by the time we had queued up! Certainly not... More

Can't beat Big Reds for food and service. Great location just outside Alvor away from the hustle and bustle of busy Alvor. Value for money. Don't miss the experience

Good food and well presented! Menu offers variety and there is an excellent vegetarian mushroom dish. Delish! Staff were friendly. Lots of space inside and out. It is a good walk from the harbour but worth a visit!

I ordered Portuguese steak with roasted crispy potatoes!!! Don't be misled by this because they are "Crisps" not as... More

Fantastic meal here and the food was amazing. There were ten of us and the service was fantastic. I had lamb shank with mash potato and it was amazing. There was a wide variety of food including steak and ribs which the men loved. The wine was also reasonable and the staff made a fuss of one of our friends... More
