Went there with old friends who recommended the chateaubriand - no teeth required - delicious as was the cheesy potatoes, everything from starters to puddings were lovely. Staff are very efficient and polite making the dining experience unusually different these days. The kitchen is visible from the dining room and everything including the chefs are immaculate.

We make a point of coming here every time we come to Alvor. This time it was a family meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We nearly always go for the chateaubriand steak to share because it is so good and relatively good value. They cook it however you like it and if one likes rare and the other well... More

This venue provides an excellent menu. Your selection will be well prepared to you requirements and served by very attentive waiters. Fine dining ambience and well located with good parking facilities. One of our favourite Algarvian venues. You will not be disappointed with fine food at sensible prices.

We have visited the Por do Sol often on our holidays. The atmosphere is great and the staff friendly and amusing. The food is superb, always cooked to perfection and well presented and the flambé are to die for. Fine dining at a reasonable price.In my opinion you would have to go a long way to better it.

Under the watchful eye of Candido things run like clockwork and all the waiters are helpful ,friendly and willingly share their expertise, with a special mention to Rui who always goes the extra mile. Por do Sol has class by the bucket full and the food... More

I've visited this restaurant over a number of years and it never fails to deliver. The staff are great, they treat you as friends and nothing is too much trouble. The food quality is excellent, the steaks are some of the best I've ever had. Yes the menu is a bit retro but it works. If you've never experienced a... More

We have dined here on a few occasions over the years and Por do Sol has never disappointed. This time around, we went for the Rack of Lamb with a garlic and herb crust for 2 persons - it was simply mouthwatering and must have contained 6/8 cuts from each rack. That didn't stop us from having the strawberry flambé!... More

This is a holiday must. Steak, prawn cocktail and crepe Suzette. It is a time warp in one sense but reassuringly excellent at it. Great service, very good food and flambé at the table complete with the special wood effect trolley at the side of the table. Loved every part of it! It would be easy to spend loads more... More
