Went tonight with 4 adults, a 13 year old and a baby. Staff were very friendly and accommodating from the start. Food was completely and utterly delicious! We had steak and lamb racks, soups to start and kids had spaghetti bolognese. Staff were so attentive, and great with the kids throughout the meal. Great waiter swooping in and swapping cutlery...

We were staying at a hotel not far away called alvor Baia and decided a meal out of the hotel would be nice. Food was beautiful, our little 20 month son had lasagne and eat it all. I enjoyed the French onion soup and prawns, beautiful table on the terrace, our son played in the garden, slightly more expensive then... More

We always go here to be looked after by the excellent waiting staff in this restaurant. The food we had was a change from fish and chicken ie Chateaubriand, Veal and Steak Portuguese and it was well worth the visit as the meat was top quality and well cooked to our specification. The strawberry flambé was also excellent.

The food is of extremely good quality, well cooked and presented in a very professional way. If you are looking for recommendations for two to share, the Lamb Chops with garlic and herb or Chateaubriand would be a good starting point. The prawn and avocado starter is to die for!

We have a 8 year old girl and they did a half dish from the main course for her. Will be on the list to... More

Very much enjoyed Por do sol. You will need to book a taxi out and back. I found the prawns and avacado a little plain for starter. I had the rib eye steak for main, it was only ok. Found it very tough. The restaurant is beautiful, very good stuff. And a good night here over all.

We've been going to Por do Sol for years and years. So typically Portuguese in style and so is the menu ..which has hardly changed in all the time we've been going. It really doesn't have to change as they perform the dishes to perfection. I've never been disappointed in anything. The staff are delightful and genuinely remember you and... More
