We have eaten here many times over the years. The food is delicious , kids (4 &2) eat every meat dish on d menu. Atmosphere is friendly, relaxing and very very family orientated. Staff and owners are fantastic and yes Ricardo does seem to speak every language under the sun (@johnoverpar) Fernando and Maria (owners) are extremely welcoming and are almost always at the restaurant to great everyone as if they know them all their life. Would recommend them for brunch lunch or dinner. Five years eating here and never has any of us had a bad meal. (And some of us are very picky with our meals) . GO and try for yourselves promise y

We always go here 4-5 times each year we come to ALVOR. The staff are great and the boss and his wife are usually there to greet you (when he is not on the golf course).Great for just a snack or drink or the full meal if you want. Ricardo seems to speak every language going .One or the best restaurants on the beach but by no means the most expensive.Its become part of the holiday to visit O Candeeiro as many times as possible and to bring friends along .You are always sure of a warm welcome and never dissapointed.

So we came to Alvor and stayed
In The PestanaDelfim on an all inclusive basis knowing that we would never eat lunch or evening meal there. Our 3rd year in Alvor and O candeeiro is the best of many good eateries. Friendly staff, great welcomes, brilliant seafood and really good value. Most expensive main we had was 22Euros for sensational Tiger Prawn see photo. Thanks to Ricardo and the rest of the gang. See you next year!

Went here about 15 times in 10 days- its great for a light lunch or cold drink as right on the beach. The food is all local. The staff are the best i've ever seen -friendly and welcoming and funny. Nuno and Ricardo especially. The fish and crabs is delightful and the prawns in garlic butter a dream.. Always busy but you are never rushed. Great views of the beach and sunset. They really care and its a great experience. You are treated like family. The owner ate their several times with his family and was very nice -thats the ultimate to say about a restaurant that the people who own it bring their family to eat!!

We ate here a couple of times on a recent trip to Alvor. Of the beach restaurants this was are favourite. Service was really good. Food excellent. Steak Diane and Crepe Susettes cooked at your table. Perhaps not would you expect of a restaurant right on the beach but really good. Fresh seafood also great. Would definitely recommend.
