Oh my god rack of lamb to die for only fault is need to tell them you want your food hot otherwise it can be lukewarm, Roy is a gem and very genuine more than I can say for some of the others.

Had an enjoyable meal at Por do sol, straight forward menu, very tasty fresh food unlike some of the other restaurants in Alvor which are very hit and miss. Many customers had lamb on the night which looked good, we had fish which went down a treat.

Wonderful for a relaxed and stylish dinner. Excellent service judged just right - not OTT. First rate short balanced menu (long lists suggest much freezer activity) and good wines. Highly recommended, especially the rack of lamb and the incredibly huge prawns.

We arrived at this restaurant after a tiring day of driving through Portugal. Probably we didn't look polished enough for their taste, because although the place was half empty, they kept us waiting for a table, then kept us waiting for a simple drink, then kept us waiting for the menu, as well. Finally it arrived and it was a mediocre list of dishes. Nothing special and all obviously overpriced. We ordered swordfish. It was OK, but had much better swordfish at more reasonable price before. Then asked for the bill which contained items we didn't even consume and had to ask for a correction.

What really annoyed us is that they created a ridiculous show around serving a simple steak and steamed vegetables to other guests probably in order to justify the prices. Luckily we didn't get this special attention (thanks to the fish), but I feel seriously sorry for the people who fall for this.
