Superb restaurant

Two visits during our holiday, seafood platter on first, sole on second, whilst my wife had steak on both visits. Both excellent meals and for what we had good value for money. Very friendly service

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.

A great little place to go if you are staying at Pine Cliffs. There is inside and outside seating available. We sat outside surrounded by beautiful flowering vines. The service was good and the food very tasty. We would return again.

Often eat here a few times whilst on holiday as it is about 500m from Pine Cliffs. The owner is very accommodating and this is a great place to eat as a family or couple. The piri piri prawns are fantastic and usually has us fighting over who gets the last one. A variety of fish is available and we... More

Really looked forward to going to a fish restaurant. I choose my fish and it was taken away to be cooked. It was over cooked,dry and lacked any seasoning. It was served with boiled potatoes and undercooked veg. Sorry not what I expected

We only ate lunch at this restaurant but as it was the nearest one to our hotel decided to give it a try. The service was fantastic and the quality and choice was above average. We had fish and you could not fault the freshness. We would go again if ever in the area.

The cold crab pate went perfectly with the garlic bread, the fried garlic prawns couldn't be faulted but vegetarian spaghetti was average, this was expected as it is a restaurant that specialises in seafood.
