Fabulous food ...exquisite service !!

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.

Another lovely meal at Alvaro's. Always a great atmosphere, with friendly efficient staff who cannot do enough for you to make your evening perfect. The menu is so extensive, you're spoilt for choice, which I have found in other restaurants not to be a good thing... but Alvaro's has always surpassed my expectations of the quality of their food. Would highly recommend.

Over the many years that we have visited this restaurant, it never fails to please. Such a comfortable and special place to eat. We both had different house wine by the glass which was excellent. There is so much delicious food to choose from. And the sweet trolley is lip-smacking!

First class food and service as usual. I’ve been coming here for something like 25 years and it’s always good.

An excellent restaurant. A fine dining restaurant with some of the dishes cooked at your table. Shame restaurants like this don't exist anymore. It has all become too contemporary. Anybody who enjoys fine food, wine and excellent service must visit this place. Their Dover Sole is to die for.

Alvaros has always been one of my favourite local restaurants they didn't disappoint this time. The food is great and the waiting staff are top class. They serve the food beautifully and there are no annoying interruptions to see if "everything is alright" because they have faith in the food they serve and they are so observant that if you were not enjoying your meal I'm certain they would approach and correct any problems.
