Just returned from alvor after a visit 12 years ago. Found this restaurant then and loved it then and vowed to return someday. Called in twice last week and apart from the restaurant being extended it was brilliant to find the same high standards in service and cuisine. The 2 hosts ( they are more than waiters ) work very hard to make you feel welcome and enjoy your evening. There is an extensive and varied menu of tried and tested choices for all courses and the presentation of the food shows the care and attention given by all staff at the restaurant. The only downside if indeed it is a downside is that the restaurant is not actually in alvor but a little way out on the road to portimao but still just a short walk from alvor town centre. Seek this restaurant out you will not be dissappointed

This restaurant is a truly Portuguese gem. The food is always very good. I personally love the fillet stroganoff. It's great that we can visit all year round. The outside terrace is a must in the summer and its very cosy by the fire in the winter. What really makes this restaurant are the staff. They are always efficient and very friendly.

On the whole this restaurant is as good as most in the area. What sets it apart for me is the flambé strawberries done at your table. Very flamboyant and taste absolutely fantastic with ice cream. What a way to finish your meal!
