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.

We had a very good experience at Alvaro's. Everyone enjoyed their food.........we all had something different. I chose off the vegetarian menu and the vegetable sizzler was very tasty. There is actually quite a good vegetarian menu. My family enjoyed both chicken and seafood dishes. The service was friendly and professional. I would recommend.....

Dined with 6 friends after a matinee. Lovely friendly restaurant. Liked being able to sit in a private area with drinks to look at menu. So much choice! We all said we would like to go a there were so many other things to try. I had traditional Portuguese soup followed by oriented noodles, which were both delicious & plentiful.
