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

Superb gourmet food. This is a real treat but worth every penny. Superb wine selection, choice of a la carte or taster. Amuse to start, sorbet to finish and in between I had the trilogy of Foie gras followed by the Salmon with wasabi and pea purée and finished off with an amazing peanut butter parfait. 10/10 - so price...

Service is friendly and professional. Nothing at fault. The interior is attractive with copied paintings on the walls of well-known painters. There is even a copied... More

We came to dos Artistas for our last night in Lagos and our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable, and the food was to die for! It was the best meal we had all week and one of the best meals we had ever. It is a bit on the pricey side but worth it for the quality of food,... More

It's unsurprising that mid-week in November that the restaurant was very quite, so an average atmosphere. However, that's all that was average about our visit. The staff were friendly, attentive but not overbearing considerin how quiet they were. The food was outstanding and whilst expensive, it was certainly worth it.
