Established back in 1977, Alvaro's Restaurant is a long-running favourite in Southend-on-Sea. Offering diners a warm welcome and a comfortable setting, a signature menu of Portuguese specialities is served along with other international additions.

The Alvaro's Restaurant menu features a wonderfully authentic collection of traditional Portuguese delicacies, all made to closely guarded family recipes. Start off with traditional soups made with lobster and brandy, or fresh grilled Portuguese sardines, before moving on to hearty mains like the medallions of wild boar marinated in white wine, port, garlic and herbs.

Some dishes at Alvaro's Restaurant in Southend-on-Sea are also prepared right at the table for that added bit of theatre, including Steak Madeirense, while the vast wine list includes bottles from across Europe, including premium sparking options.

A true taste of traditional Portuguese dining, Alvaro's Restaurant is just 10 minutes' walk from Westcliff-on-Sea Rail Station.

    Welcoming attentive staff. Large varied menu including ‘specials’. Cosy atmosphere. Food well cooked and presented. A special night out. Birthdays celebrated by the staff and other customers with singing and candles.

    5 year Anniversary evening dinner with my lovely wife. Always going to be a front runner is "Alvaro's", like the surroundings, the service and the location (tucked away, almost discreetly). The menu is plentiful and the wine list enormous and the staff do know their 'onions' about the choices. I had steak this time which isn't always my first choice, the serving was good - very big and the presentation very tasteful! I always look forward to the Alvaro experience and won't leave it so lon next time.

    Excellent little Portuguese restaurant! Food was fantastic, especially the Flambé. Bananas for desert. All served with Silver Service. Very extensive menu, it took some time to make our selection. Staff were very friendly and we will be returning to this little jewel.
