We were recommended to eat in this restaurant by our hotel and they were not wrong the fish was so fresh. The first night it was lashing rain and the restaurant was not so busy which was great for us as we got amazing service and the recommendation for what fish to try were spot on. It was so good that we tried it again the next night and the food was just as good if you love fish you have to try here.

A lovely restaurant right on the front with views of the harbour. The shutters open to give you a feeling of being outside so you can enjoy the nice weather whilst dining. The staff are very friendly and helpful, showing you the selection of fresh fish on offer that day.
The fish is fantastic, and I had fish for starters and my main course. Would thoroughly recommend the octopus salad and the cockles.
My wife had a meat dish which she said was cooked lovely as well, but the restaurant is a must for a fish lover.

This is a very busy restaurant, so we had to try it? The food is good but the waiting time for service was so long we nearly left!! It did appear that there was not enough staff on our visit to cope with the demand, but if your happy to sit in a great location then give it a go.

A Ribeira is a lovely spacious restaurant with a sea view. There are a few tables outdoors but most are inside. We found the waiter to be very friendly and happy to give us advice and information about local fish, traditional dishes and piri piri sauce. There is a BBQ outdoors where most of the cooking is done.We ate Cataplana a traditional fish and seafood stew which was delicious . The vino verde white wine was also very good. We will definitely return to this restaurant during our next holiday in Alvor.
