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.

Wow! A trip back in time in so many ways , as we walked in the Flambe trolly sits proudly by the door. The food is clearly freshly cooked as the service is great but there is no rushing here. We started with scallops and chorizo , then shared a huge Dover sole that was perfectly grilled , then expertly taken off the bone at the table. The dessert trolley had a great choice , we shared a fantastic Black currant and coconut cheesecake which was a more than generous size, and just to watch the show we also shared Crepe suzette again expertly cooked at the table. This is a great family restaurant and we will be back for more. The bill didn't hurt too badly either.

We had a wonderful night, a birthday celebration for our son. We were welcomed warmly, not rushed through our meal, yet attention by the waiters was just right. The menu is extensive, plus quite a list of special dishes The food was delicious, authentic Portuguese, generous portions.

We love our visits to the "BEST RESTAURANT IN SOUTHEND". Our latest was no different. Excellent service and food. My sole Waleska was fantastic! My wife had the seabass special. We have shared a chateaubriande as well in the past, but went our separate ways this time. The staff, Sammy and his team are always attentive. Must find another excuse soon to re-visit!
