We had sardines for lunch here and, after having them again elsewhere in Alvor have declared Fishermans rest the winner. Friendly staff, child friendly.

We ate here 3 out of the 6 nights we were in Alvor and I wish it had been more. We choose our fish from the catch of the day. One night we had the golden bream which was excellent and another night we had turbot for the first time which again was fantastic. The salad and Algarvian potato made for the best food ever.

The staff were really friendly and service was excellent. It was a novel experience to chose your fish and then watch it be prepared and cooked on the outdoor grill. Worth returning to Alvor for if nothing else!

This is our favourite restaurant in Alvor. The fish is always fresh and well cooked on the BBQ grill. Finger licking good :-)
