Just came back from alvor and found this little gem after a couple of days. First time we went for breakfast and it was cooked beautifully. We then went back on Sunday and had a Sunday dinner, it was gorgeous! A three course Sunday lunch €10! Couldn't fault it. You must try the home made ice cream, delicious.

Ate in the Phoenix twice on our recent holiday to Alvor. Both times were excellent. Decided to go back after the first visit on our last holiday there and it was better! Sunday was brill and prices great too. If you want a change from Steak or Fish and want a bit of 'home from home' then this is the place to go. Also do a great breakfast and very reasonable.

Seems to be operated by Yorkshire people, so as expected did a good roast beef and yorkie pud, plus a range of similar British favourites. Good food, no nonsense service, slightly cheaper than similars nearby. Would go again.

We went there Thursday, 16th May. The restaurant was spotless and had a good English menu. I didn't want a big meal so i chose a cheese omelette with chips and peas, it was cooked perfect how i like it. My husband had the half chicken dinner, with choice of potatoes and plenty of vegetables. It had a nice atmosphere with back groung music that brought back good memories.
We spoke with the owners who were a lovely couple, we would recommend this restaurant, we will go back again if we ever return to Alvor

Just come back after visiting Alvor again, and just had to go back to my favourite restaurant The Phoenix. As usual had a warm welcome from the proprietors John, Val and Miguel and just enjoyed good home cooking in a cosy warm atmosphere. If you like good home cooking abroad, I thoroughly recommend the Phoenix, where you get good value for money, generous portions reasonably priced.
I absolutely love this place and the cleanliness is impeccable.
I can't wait to revisit and with the weather in the UK at the moment I plan on a revisit sometime soon.
