“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Lovely little Bistro run by two of the nicest people in Alvor, Mark and Jackie. Nothing is too much trouble and given a bit of notice, Mark will cook you anything, providing the ingredients are available. The food is great, the drinks are great and a great atmosphere. Go and seek out this little gem, you won't regret it.

“Great food, great people, great resort!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Jackie and Mark welcome you as soon as you head across the courtyard, giving you a real home from home atmos.
The food is wonderful and their boast is that anything is available with 24 hours notice. We settled for a paella for 1 (a real rarity) and lamb & both were cooked to perfection.
Just like Alvor it's small, friendly and worth searching out!
See you both next year, Chris & Jackie (Doncaster)
