This is a small restaurant located in the old part of Lagos. Although the decor is out dated, the waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. A nice presentation of the food. Unfortunately our John Dory was overcooked and the Tarte Tatin was somewhat of a let down. The prices are too expensive for what it is.

It's expensive food, nicely presented, in a small bistro setting, the setting and decor does not particularly lend itself to the food offered, nor the prices. There are better options for less money. Nice service, nice food, just not special enough to warrant the price tag given the competition and the surroundings. Nothing wrong, our meals where nicely presented, and... More

A small restaurant you would not guess is as sophisticated as it is until the plates are in front of you. From the "amuse-bouche" to the deserts, everything is not only top quality but combined with much care and thought! The Algarve should have more of these places. The only drawback is... it's not always open! Call to book in... More

We would not have found this lovely little French Restaurant without trip advisor! It was expensive compared to some of the other fine dining restaurants like Artisas or Vivendo but the food was delicious. Charming French waiter of course and as it is so small a very intimate atmosphere for couples. The Food really was "pictures" on plates which are... More

We chose this restaurant for our last dinner in Portugal, as we wanted something special to end our amazing trip to Algarve, and the very few reviews - scattered among the multitude of rave reviews- that described the waiter as "rude" because he did not care for their attempts at ordering fries and spag bol meant that this place would...

The passion that this family put into the food is evident and it was one of the best meal experiences I have ever had. The host is attentive and informative about the dishes and wines. The very best of ingredients and the way they experiemented with flavours shines.even loved the fact each course was served on different styles of plates!!!... More
