Very good Black Grupa and I have eaten prawns in most restaurants in Alvor and these are oven baked with garlic and the sauce is the best. Father and Son work very hard to please all customers

Every time we come to Alvor, Capacho is one of our go-to restaurants. The food and service are both excellent, in particular the homemade desserts. (Would highly recommend the profiteroles and apple pie!) Already looking forward to our next visit!

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Alvor. Service was slow on both occasions but this appears to be the norm in Portugal. The food was delicious on both occasions and the very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend a visit!

I really would like to write a positive review of this restaurant since the food was really good, but I just can't overlook the terribly slow service. It is clear that if you go there as a big party, ready to have a three-course dinner...More

No, there is no dress code,but I personally feel more comfortable in smart/casual clothes, ie tailored shorts rather than day time wear. But whatever you are comfortable with yourself. Enjoy.
