“great times spent here!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a lovely friendly bar with fantastic staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome especially Tiago (even if he doesn't know anything about football ha ha) Mark and Ali are fantastic Ali running her socks off while Mark stands a sing!!! Really enjoyed the music banter (even though he did bar me from making requests!) Mark greets everyone as they arrive by their place of origin then introduces them to the rest of the bar. They serve the best slush puppies in Alvor! Will certainly be returning so Mark you have 12 months to brush up on Soft Cell and learn the words of "the stars are shining bright for you" seeing as you now have one!! Thank you for making our holiday Deborah Paul and Harvey AKA Mr Mrs and Master Preston

A cracking bar very very cheap prices and great staff and atmosphere. We walked from the other side of the resort a few times it was well worth it. Thanks

“Great Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at at Dunas apartments and visited this bar several times for lunchtime snacks which were always good with great service. Mark is great and does a good job in making people feel welcome with his evening entertainment along with his staff. My son said he could not sing but he has no taste !!! I would have stayed longer in the evening but wife had the cash !!! Keep up the great work (Linconshire)

During our 1st stay in Alvor we used to call at the bar in the evening on the way to our apartment. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and friendly service, live music and accompanying banter from Mark. We will be back next year. Mrs & Mrs Cleethorpes and Mrs Welshpool
