    Pont'a Pe Bar: Downtown Aljezur

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jun 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the end of our second day in Aljezur we were ready for a solid meal after our drive south to Cape St. Vincent, Portimao, our southern beach, Monchique and finally Mt. Foia! We cruised around checking places out and eventually pulled onto a street that ran beside this restaurant. However, it was a one-way street that very quickly took us on past the restaurant and into the old section of Aljezur. Before we knew it, were were going up very steep and narrow cobbled streets that seemed to be turning into a maze with no escape! I was thankful for the tiny size of our Fiat Punto before we were done - we eventually came out the other side of town very high up, emerging at the Moorish castle ruins overlooking the town! Luckily we had visited there the day before so knew where we were and how to get back to town. On the next pass we pulled into the restaurant parking lot across the little brook and beside the supermarket!

    O Marinheiro: Cliff Richards Favourite Haunt!!

    by freya_heaven Updated Jun 2, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were recommended this restaurant by the Villa owners. It was a wonderful restaurant, not particularly cheap but great food & a lovely atmosphere. We came here New Years Eve & saw the New Year in here, Great fun! We then returned again the following week.

    Apparently Cliff Richard eats here! Well my mother was impressed even if you are not (~_~)

    Restaurante Grill 54: More seafood, now with good view

    by cmak Updated Apr 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is good mainly because of its location, not easy to get too, if you hate uphill walking! It is located at (almost) the top of the cliff! Next to Church of Santana. But it offers great views (front page Beach photo taken here :P) and the food is offered at excellent value! 5Euro for a plate of grilled sardines, and same for a plate of Chicken Piri Piri, the hottest piri dish I've tasted in the Algarve!

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Piri Piri, cheap and the piri piri is a real challenge! I managed to down the whole plate without a tear! :P

    Grilled Sardines

    Grande murhala: Chinese restraunt-Grande murhala

    by rob-craig Updated Dec 22, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now I am not really a one for chinese food but my family are so fair do to the Grande murhala in Alvor because this beats them all.
    Victors restaurant in Praia da rocha also is there at the top of my list too.
    The staff here were very friendly and helpful they also knew how too keep the kids amused when they started to get tired (or was it the other way around? I will never know)
    We actually ordered a take away by phone one night and they remembered who I was and what meal I ordered.You can sit outside on a large upstairs patio and watch the crowd below you passing by

    Favorite Dish: At the Grande Murhala I usually started with the Hot sour soup then either a beef or pork curry with superb light egg fried rice.My daughter enjoyed the beef hot pot and my four year old son the CHIPS!!!and of course the ice cream

    Pizzaria Gaby: A nice pizza or spaghetti bols

    by rob-craig Written Oct 16, 2002

    Inside or out ,this pizzaria is situated on a shopping street where you can (as we did)sit outside in a reasonably quiet location an watch as the locals go about their day to day business also watch the tourists adding their charm to this place.

    Favorite Dish: Here I had a mixed salad to start,then a seafood pizza to follow .My friend had prawn coctail and spaghetti bolongaise.There was also a childrens menu to satisfy my little ones

    Excellent prices for lots of quality fresh seafood. beware of the local feline population though as they can be very persuasive to have your fish for their lunch.

    Favorite Dish: Fresh 'catch of the day' sea bass.
    plenty of salad those black olives and a glass of Mateus of course.
    Specialities include 'cataplanas' and grilled fish.

    Sol Nascente: Nice place at a very touristic spot

    Although this place is a very touristic spot, we liked it very much. We do not think that the prices were too high and it was nice to recognice that also local people came here.
