Nice atmosphere and decor. Waiter was friendly but the service was very slow. The starters were disappointing - Calamari was chewy, mozzarella sticks tasteless. The pizzas my children ordered were average, my lamb shank rather dry. Free glass of wine given after an extremely long wait for mains but more communication would have been appreciated. Rather disappointing !

We were found a table "outside" a very quiet corner in a courtyard which was ideal. Friendly welcome and plenty of advice on menu choice. Pizza and pasta after a days travel went down well. Good size pizza with fantastic crisp base. Prawn pasta was really creamy. Plenty of chat with waiters who made us feel comfortable and welcome, lighting... More

Really love this places waiters are friendly but not too pushy. Food is great quality and quantity and the price is comparable with the rest of Alvor. Ended up there 3 times during our weeks stay, and the kids love it too!

This restaurant is located on a popular street on a hill in Alvor. The weather was warm so it was nice to sit outside to eat and watch the public stroll by. We both had pasta dishes with either seafood or meat and both were very tasty. The service was good and the wine was also very nice. It is... More
