Excellent meal,lovely setting. The fillet of beef was superb as was the salmon. The deserts were fantastic, a little more expensive then downtown Lagos, but worth it.

Tucked away (bot not too far from the main road) in the countryside is this great little tapas place. The couvert is well worth getting - olives of course, but also several spreads, mainated carrots, ham, melon.. lovely pre-meal treat. Lots of interesting dishes, excellent service, nice atmosphere.

This is a lovely restaurant. The setting is peaceful and calm and the food is delicious. It's on the pricey side for Lagos but the quality of the food is worth the little bit extra.

Don't listen to the reviews. We went on our last night and had an amazing dinner and outside dinning experience! I don't understand why some people have been negative I found everything superb! Be warned thought the portions are large so probably best not to have a heavy lunch! 😉 Leave plenty of room for the fabulous food!!! This will... More

I think this was the most memorable meal we've had during our 2-week stay in Portugal. The food is just amazing. The ambiance is charming. There is not one negative thing to say about the place. So strongly recommend! Just wish we would've discovered it earlier in our stay.

I have eaten here on numerous occasions and it never disappoints. Quality food in a fantastic setting, the staff are very friendly and it all makes for a great evening. Off the beaten track and nestled in a picturesque valley hideaway it's definitely worth the trip.

Set in its own magical, twinkly lit, dell halfway between Lagos and Luz (follow the blue signs from the roundabout) this is a wonderful place to visit. The setting is wonderful and the food is wonderful. There was a huge selection of couvert, all very different and delicious. The starters were stunning... the goats cheese and apple salad was divine.... More

Been to this restaurant a few times the food and wine are fine, and the outside sitting area is lovely. Owner is charming with excellent service, nice, different restaurant to visit, especially on a summers night. Luxurious surroundings ideal for special occasions, when you want to spoi yourself, but equally appropriate for a mid week dinner, try it and see.
