Windsurf - Beach Restaurant, Alvor Algarve
Book your table in advance if you want some summer beachside dining - the terrace fills up very quickly. For dessert, order the homemade biscuit cake - it's delicious!
Located right on the beach by the picturesque fishing village of Alvor Windsurf restaurant and snack bar is the perfect choice for delicious food and stunning views at any time of day.
As you approach the restaurant the wonderfully vast horizon of Alvor beach becomes visible. This is the fantastic panorama that accompanies your meal, a view that is constantly changing depending on the hour. Windsurf is open all day serving tasty snacks, lazy lunches and romantic evening meals that allow you to enjoy breath-taking sunsets.
The menu at Windsurf is varied, featuring a good selection of starters and salads including stuffed tomatoes, octopus salad and shellfish salad. The prawns are always delicious - grilled or fried, they are difficult to resist. House specials include a VERY generous Monkfish Kebab, Clam Cataplana (a typically Portuguese dish served in an elegant copper pot), Monkfish Cataplana and the Windsurf Special Caldeirada (Fish Stew), as well as the catch of the day.
Due to its beachside location Windsurf is perfect in the summer for long leisurely lunches out of the hot midday sun and even more leisurely dinners after a hard day tanning on the beach. There is something special about sipping a chilled Vinho Verde and watching the sun disappear into the Atlantic as the first stars appear in the evening sky. In the winter Windsurf has a charm all its own as you sip a warming drink and enjoy the usually mild Algarve winter. Windsurf is quite unique in that there is no TV here, no musak, no wi-fi. Just great food, conversation and views.
Windsurf is an excellent choice for families - the adults get to enjoy a relaxed meal while the younger members of the group can enjoy the beach and dunes. The service is always friendly and welcoming. All in all, a winner.
