The restaurant is extremely popular and booking would be essential in high season, there is a good choice of options available on the menu, and the quality of food is excellent. The staff generally were polite and helpful although when paying the bill I pointed out that the incorrect change had been given and the missing money was thrown down... More

If you are bored by the choice and/or offended by the price of nearby Pine Cliffs resort restaurants this is a very good choice indeed.....only a short walk away, friendly restaurant with good selection of seafood & fish....helpful & friendly staff.....and live music (not sure how often) Well cooked food, reasonably priced wine......all in all ..... Recommended!

Ate twice here with my family and the food and service were excellent. Fish fresh and lots of choice plus good meals for young children. We went on a Friday night which also had music courtesy of a guitarist and the place was packed with tourists and locals. Thanks.

Restaurant was recommended by another restaurant owner who had eaten here since he was a child. Lagosteira decor is a bit basic but authentic. The restaurant comes across as a place for locals and families. It has a backgarden for children. Overall the prices were fair but. The lobster did make a serious dent in the budget, but you live...

Our group of 6 visited A Lagosteira for lunch recently. It has been 2 years and we are happy to report that their food, service and ambiance are still first class. We all ordered from their tourist menu. All meals were tasty and the service was bang on good. Our only real regret is that the restaurant is a bit... More

Food was good as was the service. Entertainment at the tables made for a different dining experience that i would strongly recommend you go along and try. Not a quiet restaurant, but a busy and pleasant place to eat.
