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.

Alvaro’s was amazing from beginning to end! Could not have been welcomed into the restaurant any better than we were! The staff could not help you enough which just adds to the 3 course meal that we had, each course being as nice as the other! We both ordered different steaks that were both cooked in front of us at the table, and they were both cooked perfectly to how we wanted it and he taste was unreal! it is by far the best restaurant my partner and myself have been to and we will be going back again in the future!!
