Big Reds Steakhouse

The Bees Knees €€€+

Big Reds Steakhouse is a popular lunch and dinner choice for visitors of all ages staying in Alvor, Portugal. Located slightly out of town on the road into Alvor, Big Reds Steakhouse has recently moved to large premises to accommodate its growing customer base – and perhaps also to better accommodate the enormous portion sizes for which the restaurant has earned its reputation.

The restaurant is owned by a British restaurateur, Nick, who is also in charge of the busy kitchen. Open for lunch and dinner this is a popular spot at any time of day, whether you are in search of a hearty brunch, a leisurely lunch or a lengthy dinner. The diner-style décor makes it a good spot for family and group dining as well as for business lunches or romantic meals for two.

Big Reds Steakhouse is extremely child friendly, with a large children’s play area featuring ballpark and bouncy castle. As result it is particularly popular with families with young children during lunchtime and in the early evening, when parents can enjoy a meal and some adult conversation while the little ones entertain themselves to their hearts’ content. There is also a snooker table and the big TV screens make this a popular venue in which to enjoy some of the summer’s major sporting events in a jovial atmosphere that is more suited to families than large groups of lads.


Sunday lunch is highly popular at this Alvor restaurant – try the belly pork for a twist on a traditional roast dinner. Other favourite dishes include the famous Big Reds Ribs, a huge rack of ribs basted in tasty barbecue sauce, or the fillet steak which is cooked by the diner at his or her table on a slab of lava rock. The portion sizes are not for the faint hearted, but try to leave room to at least share a dessert such as the signature chocolate brownie with Baileys ice cream.

Whatever time of day you visit, the waiting staff are welcoming and eager to make suggestions from the menu and wine list. Portugal has many viticultural gems to offer and the wine list features a good selection at reasonable prices. The cocktail list is popular amongst the younger crowd during the busy summer evenings and the lounge bar area is a busy meeting point for a late night crowd in high season.
