I walked in with my (very quiet) 6 yr old son on a Wed night around 7pm hoping to get a table for four (us two + my husband + my daughter). The waiter ignored my first request. I assumed he hadn't heard/understood so I asked again. This time he gave me the eye roll and said-literally - "you wait,... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here last night. The fish dishes and pasta were great. Service was friendly and smiley. It is just a smallish room but atmosphere was nice as the restaurant was full. All in all a lovely evening.

Felt like a local and very relaxed place when entering the restaurant. The waiters was very friendly. The food was the best fish and seafood I had so far in Portugal. Very well cooked with a lot of flavour. All food from starter too dessert was a joy to eat! Will come here again.

This was one of our regular haunts but today the service was soooo slow; an hour an half till we got our mains. Then when they came one of the meals was incorrect but we decided to keep it as we did not want to wait again. Then when the bill came we were charged for the more expensive meal... More

Five of us had an excellent meal in this charming, slightly rustic, restaurant. The clam starter was delicious, but the stand out dish was the main course lamb carre with mint and rosemary: what looked to be a whole rack of lamb, of exceptional tenderness and beautifully cooked. Service was good, a little slow, although not enough to be a... More

Excellent quality and range of fresh, local food and drink. Friendly, efficient service. Reasonably priced. Good quality entrees. Ambient atmosphere. Nicely spaced tables. Easy decision to go more than once.

This restaurant was just excellent. We were shown and told about the fish of the day and had exceptional wines matched to our meals. The clam starter was was incredible. The restaurant is just outside the old town walls but not far. We highly recommend as a must while you are staying in Lagos.

We've seen this restaurant and looked in several times since it's very close to A Casa do Pintor. This time we decided we'd try it, and took a friend. We were very pleasantly surprised. It's a small restaurant with only about 20 seats. It took us ages to choose what to eat because there was so much on the menu... More

Stayed in Lagos 6 nights and ate here 3 of the nights as it was so good. It's not a large restaurant so I'd definitely book to ensure you get in. Everything we ate was delicious, for your cover charge of 1 euro per person you get bread,homemade chicken liver pate & garlic & spinach butter, couple of slices sardine... More
