Mario and Armandio have the service down to a T. Friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely fresh fish served with fantastic wines. We never look at the wine list we just go with whatever Mario recommends.
The atmosphere is relaxing as the kids play on the beach whilst we eat. They are happy as are we. We eat here most nights for dinner as nowhere else can match it.
I can highly recommend the clams, shrimps, langostine, and they will order any fish you would like such as red snapper. Bream is readily available as is stone bass and sea bass. Do go here for dinner, you will not regret it.

Been going to Alvor for 20 years,and saw tropico as just a snack bar. But since the re vamp it now stands against the best in the area. Great full lunch menu and at great evening menu full of fresh fish and meats all cooked to order excellent value for money. The new team offer fantastic service and are always attentive.
Give it a try you will love it, a real winner.

And I agree with previouse review regarding Mario's strawberry flambé, one of many reasons to give it a go

Tropico is no longer just a beach bar. Since Mario and Amandio joined the staff, there have been many upgrades, including a fantastic menu for lunch and evening meals. The food is great and Mario and Amandio provide outstanding service at this ideal location right on the Tres Irmaos Praia. Beautiful setting! We went for dinner twice during our stay, and several times for lunch. Great place!

Going to Alvor for 12 years now, and spending a lot of snack times in O Tropico, it was great to see that Rui has decided to open for a full evening meal menu! The ambience, al fresco setting, the sun setting against Tres Irmaos, a superb fresh fish and meat menu and Mario's Strawberry Flambee provide impelling reasons not to miss an O Tropico experience. Can't wait to go back at the end of August! We, as a family, ate on four occasions spending over three hours during each evening visit. Don't miss the red wine selection, some beautiful local examples. Cheers Rui, Armandio and of course the strawberry guy - Mario.
