This place gets everything right. The warm welcome, the comfortable interior, the food, the atmosphere, the price , the wine. Both the restaurant and some of the staff have been there for some time and their relaxed efficiency makes the dining experience enjoyable. Portuguese food well cooked and presented is satisfying rather than inventive but its altogether a pleasant experience and booking is essential.

This restaurant is simply fabulous and in our opinion is the best by far in the Portimao/Praia de Rocha/ Alvor area. This is the 4th time we have eaten here and the food quality remains extremely high. The service is superb and the general atmosphere is relaxing. A 'must do' if you are in the area. Slightly more expensive than the average Portugeuse restaurants but well worth it.

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
