Have visited this restaurant all four times we have been in Lagos. Dinner is great, although I do think a Michelin star will require that the kitchen raises the bar even more. Lunch in Artistas is underestimated. Few people in the wonderful garden, delicious food, very friendly staff who has endured two loud boys during all our visits. A must... More

Had a fantastic meal here with my family this July - we haven't been to the artistas for around 7 years but now will not be missing it on future Portugal holidays! Our waiter was so lovely and so helpful with our food choices. I had tomato soup from the kids menu as I didn't fancy any of the other... More

Four of us had a great night here. Restaurant is just away from the centre of town. We chose the 4 course teasing menu, which was superb. We all had something different and all meals were of the finest quality. Waiting staff were very polite and attentive. 4 Bellini cocktails to start, 3 bottles of wine. 2 beers. Total bill... More

After our visit to the city of Lagos, we were searching for a good restaurant. Of course we wanted to have a nice meal in a non-touristic setting. And yes, we found it! Dos Artistas is unique in its own way. It has a cosy somewhat old looking interior and refreshing meals. Combinate this with a friendly staff, and you... More

Do not be deterred by the tiny frontage, this restaurant is a veritable T.A.R.D.I.S. Fine dining is more than just the food and this restaurant has it all, from the welcome to the staff to the ambiance etc. We only had one regret and that was we left it until our last night before we dined there. Once discovered we... More

The food at Dos Artistas is 'nouvelle cuisine'-stylish, but there is still some way to go. However better than and different from the classical Lagos-restaurants and with a beautiful garden terrace/patio. At lunchtime you can not eat à la carte but only choose from the lunch-menu (2 choices for every dish). The food is nice and so is the presentation,... More

I love everything about this restaurant. The amazing and imaginative food, the table settings, the garden dining room and the attentive and friendly staff who have remained as loyal to this restaurant as I have over many years. All the menu choices are carefully selected by the chef and Mario, the owner. I think I have tasted just about every... More

Fantastic food, cosy and stylish interior. Pleasant service. Located outside the typical touristic area, but worthwhile a visit!
