I am surprised to see many negative reviews, I rather enjoyed this meal. To be honest my mussels to start weren't great. However my steak was cooked to perfection and tasted lovely. Service was very friendly- especially the lady who looked like the owner!

Great service- we told the lady it was our 25th wedding anniversary and she gave us a free drink! Great steak, quick service and local to where we were staying. Good desserts too- and I tend to be fussy as so many are mass produced and disappointing I would definitely return.

Nice steak house, our steak were cooked perfectly. If I could change one thing it would be to have an option of sides as the steaks come with potatoes and salad and no other options. Staff very welcoming.

I had the 9.5 oz sirloin with don toro sauce. The size of the steak seemed small but that could have just been me, it was medium like I asked as well as tasty. The accompanying roast potatoes weren't anything special but that wasn't really off-putting. My partner had the rack of ribs which were larger than expected, tough and... More

We ate here twice during our 7 night stay in Alvor. The specialise in steaks but offer fish dishes too. We chose steak with vegatables an pasta priced at 9.50. Each time the food was cooked to our liking and well presented. The waitress was very attentive and really looked after us. I would highly reccomend this resturant!

If you like steak this is a must. Bang on price and excellent steak, flavour, tender and served with proper spuds and salad. The service is very good and the whole dining experience is great. The very competitive prices mean we visit often!

Thank Tim P
