The menu was hard to read.The setting and views were out of this world.Food was good,as was the service.When we finished our meal i asked where was the ladies bathroom to be told it was down two flights of stairs.It was such a let down.So small and grubby and no lock on door.Would not go back for that reason.

Location fab, set in the cliffs. Food lovely, huge G&T, lovely atmosphere. The men in our party thought it was pricey but we ladies thought it was worth every penny and would go back on next visit to Portugal.

We ended up eating lunch here nearly every day when we were on a weeks holiday and I look forward to going back when I return to Alvor. It was a welcome break from the heat but still on the beach with wonderful views. The tropical salad was great as were the other salads on the menu. The sangria was very refreshing too. We also ate dinner here one evening and it was one of the highlights of the trip...we had seabass and it was delicious. It was pricey compared to restaurants in Alvor but the view and the setting is worth it. Yes the service might be a bit slow...but it didn't bother us. We were happy to sit back and relax. We didn't find the staff unhelpful...just busy! Would definitely recommend it for couples.

A group of family and friends of about 20 people we prebooked for this meal. This place is not child friendly and there is alot steps down first and then a small lift into a long corridor. The restaurant itself is quiet small and there is no room for a buggy. We were seated upstairs and they didnt help with the buggy up the stairs. When we went up stairs it was very squashed and the staff made it obivious that the buggy was in the way. We asked to go down stairs as there was a bit more room and again they didnt help with the buggy. We had to go up to the bar to order our own drinks and they were pricey! They brought us down a mixture of starters olives,liver,fish,carrots,bread which we did not order. We waited an hour and half for our main and walked out starving! The menu was hard to read as it was all kg weight no price so you dont know how much the meal costs. I saw another couple giving out as she got her main course and he didnt. The staff were not friendly or nice. A man showed us the catch of the day which was impressive. I would not go back again.
