“Best restaurant in Alvor”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Firstly, you may read all the bad reviews of this restaurant which I'm quite surprised at but my experience was really good.

The waiter was very nice, very sarcastic but it's good that he made an effort and was funny at the same time. Some people may think he was rude but he was just really funny.

The view is amazing, if you get the right seats, you will really struggle to get a better view of the sunset. The food was also very good, steaks were huge and also cooked perfectly.

No problems with this restaurant at all!

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

After giving this restaurant the benefit of the doubt, I have now come to the conclusion that it is just down right poor!!!!! Compared to the other restaurants in this beautiful village, the only thing it has going for it is the ViEW......the fish we had was of poor quality, when we remarked to the staff about it, we had no response, just the bill ....And frankly, it was expensive!!!!

“view /view/view”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Did i mention the view.Yes it is spectacular with its lofty position looking out over the harbour.We ate here twice/first time with friends of ours who were goin g home the following day.the meal we had was a deal from their hotel.The reason i mention this is that with this deal you are shown a different menu which for price we paid was not bad.2nd time we went we ate off main menu which was completely different.A lot more choice at a slightly bigger price.Both times we ate here it was full on terrace which is where the best view is and really enjoyed our mealsStaff were very nice and cost wise about on a par with most places we tried you should seek it out and give it a try.

“Food good but staff have a very strange attitude to customers!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We have been going to this restaurant for approx 5 years but have to say it is for the food and definitely not for the staff making it a pleasant experience .
It is advertised as being the restaurant with the best views and relaxing atmosphere . Sounds good but one waiter is so self opinionated and makes its obvious to all within hearing that he doesn't really like the English .
We had booked 2 days in advance for a table with a good view but when we arrived we were told the table was not available . We accepted an alternative but have to say not impressed. Then a waitress came and told us they were not bothered what customers thought, if they leave they don't care as there is always someone else ! Really made us feel welcome !!!!
Such a shame that this years visit left a sour taste .
