We visited this restaurant a number of times at lunch time over the last few weeks and were delighted by the choice of food, the service provided and the location. I had the fresh sardines on two occasions - 6 sardines, chips and salad - a very full plate! I would certainly recommend this beach restaurant.

It was a cold day and as the restaurant is on the beach although enclosed it was a little cold...We chose the cover and Grilled Sardines. The portion of Sardines was plentiful and very well cooked. I chose boiled potatoes rather than fries and would have preferred the potatoes to be warm. However the service was perfect and it was good value for money.

We went on the beach everday and called in this place most day for a snack or a drink ,very relaxed and in a fantastic location .On a couple of occasions we came off the beach late and called in for an early dinner , we had sea food spaghetti with clams and prawns ,this came in a huge pot and was delicious with some fresh bread and a chilled bottle of green wine ( or 2).
The owner Manuel and his staff are very friendly and help to make it a good experience .
Just in front of the restaurant are the sunbeds owned by Edgar he will make sure you have a perfect day before you lazily stroll off and sit down for an ice cold beer or a delicious meal

We've been coming to Alvor for 10 years now and a have eaten in the 5 Quinas many times. The service is always courteous and friendly and the food fresh and tasty. The restaurant is a little pricier than some in Alvor but the view is priceless, we love to spend the day at the beach and on this holiday had lunch and dinner on one of the days with breathtaking sunset views before heading back along the boardwalk to our accommodation.

We visit the 5 Quinas everyday when we are on the beach and it is always great but for a little difference try going for an evening meal, the whole restaurant changes. It becomes quiet and relaxing with the sound of the sea in the background while you enjoy a lovely traditional Portuguese meal, go early and watch the sunset over the beach, truly outstanding.
