We first visited october 2014 and the good and service were excellent . We returned feb 2015 and although the service was excellent the food was terrible . Tough thick pasta , a bisque so salty it was inedible and an over sweet beef starter . We could not believe we were in the same restaurant . A real shame... More

Always make a trip to Artistas when in lagos, there is not really any comparison in the town or I am sure for many miles around. It is top quality, welcoming, family friendly (there is a kids menu so you can have a quality family meal). It never disappoints so go on treat yourself.

The best food we experienced during our Algarve trip; the service is both excellent and friendly. A perfect restaurant experience; not cheap but you get what you pay for. A real treat and highly recommended.

This was a terrific find thanks to Tripadvisor. I ordered one on tasting menus, which was elegant and filling. The wait staff were helpful and polite and always came at the right time, never hovered. The dining room has lovey decor. Altogether terrific dining experience. Worth the trip to lagos just for this.

This place is not cheap, think €65 a head depending on wine chosen but was definitely worth the money. The staff were lovely and very helpful, food was excellent and the choice of wines was also superb. Mostly Portuguese which is unusual as most places are exclusively Portuguese however the Portuguese wines on offer are lovely and complement the food... More

Went there with friends that had visited many times before. I could see why. It wasn't busy at all in Jan, but we were well catered for. Service was spot on and the food quality great. I found it amusing that we settled for,the house white, which, when served as cold as it was and in quality glassware, meant we... More

We are regular visitors to the Western Algarve and discovered this restaurant hidden on a back street in Lagos when we were looking for something else entirely ! Since then we have returned on each visit to the area and have yet to be disappointed. The food and atmosphere are always first class, and even though we were one of... More
