“Another restaurant to add to our good food list in Alvor”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Another restaurant to add to our good food list in Alvor. People in our hotel recommended Por Do Sol restaurant to us, so thought we would give it a try. We were not disapointed, fantastic choice of food, wonderfully cooked, Geat wine and fanastic service.We will be back in September.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We ate here based on the reviews and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed, we had a table outside which was nice as the weather was hot.

I had the swordfish in garlic butter which was delicious, very fresh and tasty. My husband had the smoked swordfish to start, this wasn't something either of us had tried before, it was absolutely delicious very light and nicer than smoked salmon which we both love. For mains he had a monkfish cataplana which he said was delicious very tasty, although a bit messy to eat!! We are hoping to go back to Alvor next year and this will definitely be a restaurant we visit a number of times.

The food was fantastic and the service was great too, friendly and attentive without being over the top. Perfect

“One of the best restaurants in Alvor”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Had a lovely meal here recently. The Algarvian Fish soup was very tasty and the prawns for main course were also beautiful.
The service was also excellent.

Will go back again

“Right out of the 70s”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Overpriced food with a menu better suited to the third generation. Tinned asparagus and minuscule prawn cocktail a speciality.

“A little outside of Alvor town, must visit restaurant....”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Myself & my husband were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, it's not directly in the centre of Alvor but a mere 2 min taxi ride. The place was buzzing & we arrived at 9.30, got a table outside & soaked up the atmos. Service was excellent, the owner a very pleasant & welcoming man 'everyone there were his friends' & you could see & hear the repeat business time after time when people were leaving, he was very funny at times with some of his known diners! nice touches & personally we felt very welcomed to his restaurant & it was clear that he appreciated everyone dining with him (an unusual commodity in so many of today's eateries) Food was simple Portuguese style, but perfectly cooked & well presented & delicious especially the fillet steaks & strawberry flambé....to die for!!! All in all would totally go here again, was only a pity we found it on our 2nd to last night! We'll be back, Thankyou for a wonderful evening....
