We found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and it met expectations....lovely friendly service from a sole young man who we understand to be the son of the family running this off-the-beaten track restaurant. We took my partners parents here for dinner who are from Luz...and they will be back again for sure. The cover of shrimp on mini toasts, chicken liver,... More

My partner and I have eaten here last September and were really looking forward to a great fillet steak. Very pleased to say that our meal last night was fantastic and the wine chosen was again perfect. This restaurant is family run with father and mother cooking and son front of house. They open at around 6.00 pm and we... More

We stayed in Lagos for five days and visited at least 5 different restaurants that have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Tripadvisor. This one is by far the best. We got Camarao c/Molho Pimenta and Polvo c/Camarao Alcaide. Delicious!!! Highly recommended!

Our best meal in Lagos! We had a wonderful meal in this family run restaurant on Monday 27th October. Found it by accident on our last night wandering up and around the narrow street looking to get away from the busy restaurants downtown with similar menus. You must try and find this restaurant. Top class! Several guests thanked the chef... More

An enchanting little restaurant off the beaten track. It is worth the walk up the hill to enjoy a delicious meal here. Very fresh seafood. Well presented by very efficient staff. We were frowned upon for not having a reservation, but they still seated us and served us graciously. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a special dinner. Probably best... More

We eat here regularly and enjoy everything. Steak, lamb and fish are all expertly cooked and presented by the chef and his staff. Never had a bad meal and they had recently installed air conditioning providing heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Tricia

It's worth finding this small restaurant which is a little off the main drag up a small hill. It's delightfully cosy and the hosts are friendly and welcoming. The food is fresh, vibrant and flavourful. We had Carpaccio of beef and melon and ham to start then garlic shrimp and pasta and the cuttlefish with clams - which was utterly... More

A very nice medium size restaurant worth booking to make sure you get in. Good wine and great tasting food, it's a little off the main area but worth finding.

Friends at the hotel recommended a visit to this restaurant and we were glad we took up the suggestion. We had an excellent meal in typical Portuguese surroundings with personal service by the owner. The menu offers something for everyone and the food is well cooked and presented. We had the house wines which were very good.

Great restaurant just along from the fire station. We have been eating here for many years and it is great Very good food and service - lots of good wines. Much better than the main restaurants in the town. Very high quality food. Nothing is too much trouble.
