“What more could you ask for”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We were recommended the Greendoor by friends. Their still friends! As restraints go the Greendoor is friendly and intimate with a menu to suite all tastes - especially if you like fish. Food was first class with one exception - vegetables were over cooked. Everything else was first class!

“Never a let down, fish lovers paradise”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Run by francisco this little rustic gem blows the poncy seafood places near the harbour out of the water. You get fantastic fresh fish cooked perfectly for a fraction of the cost that you would pay less than 100.metres away. The restaurant is located just off the main strip and is simple in decor but the service and food make up for it all. We as a family have been coming for years, try the garlic prawns to start followed by fresh seabass or golden bream its all so fresh and so good, as for the benches, they add to the ambience!

“I adore the spaghetti!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Let me first say that, our family has been going to Portugal for years and years and this restaurant we always visit. It even adopted its own nickname ' the green door' so I will refer to it as that in this review. There is a warming atmosphere as soon as you walk in and don't be put off by other reviews saying about the benches. There is pillows on top and it is a comfortable bench. There is lots of lovely things on the menu, from seabass to fish and chips ( the good quality type) and my personal favourite, THE SPAGHETTI BOLONAGES! ( please note bolanase may not be spelt right as I was quite distracted writing this.) We don't usually have dessert here so I can't say much about it but I'm sure it is great too. All in all it is defiantly worth paying a visit here because it could become a family favourite of yours too!

“Special Fish of the Day”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Good restaurant with friendly atmosphere, average prices and nice service. There are 2 fish options: Fish of the Day: €8.00 & Special Fish of the Day for €9.50. It worths a visit. This is a very good option in Alvor.

“Alvor's best”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We have been visiting Alvor for several years, taking advantage of the fantastic fresh fish restaurants. There are many of them but, this one, "green door" as it's locally known, is the best. Staff are friendly and helpful, the fish - which changes daily dependant on the local catch - is superb and the prices are very reasonable. In some cases half that of the harbourside alternatives, just 100m away. Overall, a real find.
