If you like fish you will love this restaurant. The fresh fish is cooked to perfection in the open and looks and smells delicious. Served with your choice of potatoes or chips and salad. The staff are friendly and attentive. On the evening we ate there, there was a strong NW wind but the tables were sufficiently sheltered and we had a lovely view of the river. We were quite early and they were not yet very busy so it was a very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We have been to Alvor numerous times but had never been to this restaurant before. We went this time and liked it so much we went back later in the week. The fish was delicious and reasonably priced and there was enough choice for my non-fish eating husband.
The house wine was very nice and they sold Sagres, which is a bonus, as not as many places seem to sell this beer these days. We even had a dessert, which we rarely do, a Portuguese version of tiramisu - it was lovely.
We are going back later this summer and will definitely go back to this restaurant - in a resort where you are spoiled for choice with good restaurants that says a lot.
This restaurant is located down at the bottom of the strip by the harbour.

The Golden Bream is to die for! As for the monkfish kebabs, they are gorgeous. The service was good and the house wine sufficient. Great location close to the harbour. Gets busy, so get there early!

We visited in mid-December when the restaurant and general area was rather empty. We knew from experience that this was one of the busier restaurants in summer. The main server is a very friendly man who also has great table etiquette. They present to you the fish available at your table, where you can select the individual fish you want. All our food was perfectly cooked, and accompanied with chips and rice. We would definitely visit again.

I can only give this restaurant a "Poor" rating because although the food was excellent I was totally turned off ever returning by an incident during my last visit to the restaurant. A woman who appeared to be somehow associated with the restaurant or the staff held a small dog in her arms very close to the food preparation area and various waiters fondled the dog's stomache and then handled food without washing their hands. The woman then sat at a table and put the dog on a chair next to her, the dog put its front paws on the table surface numerous times.
