dinner with a view

Very friendly owner and staff for a table on the second floor probably need to book. Food was good and reasonably priced. Views over river towards the beach

This is a lovely restaurant. I thoroughly recommend eating inside as the decor and ambience are good. We were lucky enough to get a table for 2 without booking. We had the mixed fish cataplana for 2. It was excellent. 3 courses with a bottle of wine for 2 was 80 Euros.

Been coming here since it opened - must be 35 yrs! The standard of service and food is amazing - never drops - always brilliant for us. It was another great experience on Saturday - thanks.

Had dinner here after wondering around the town looking for somewhere to eat, and thought Dom Sebastiao looked perfect for us. We happily waited for a table inside the beautifully, typical Portuguese-style restaurant looking through the most impressive wine list we've seen! (you'll understand when you see the cellar!) the waiters here are fabulous, and attend to your every need,... More

Can't fault this restaurant. The fillet steak was amazing. The service was great even though it was very busy when we visited. Well worth finding this fabulous restaurant, will definitely be returning.

Tucked up in the small streets of Lagos, but very close to the "centre" of town, the setting is idyllic. Wonderful couvert and excellent cataplana-style seafood. Also enjoyed the paté, olives and almonds brought directly from one of the staff's grandmother's estate (though I would imagine these are probably not available all the time). Excellent house white wine. A truly... More

When on holiday went to this restaurant for the first time but it wont be our last. Great food and the waiting staff excellent. The atmosphere was great and value for money was great. If you don't want to eat too early it might be best to book. This can be done by just popping in and asking for a... More

Lots of restaurants to choose from but this one should not be missed. Chicken in a pottery pot sounded good and was fantastic. The sea bass was great too & the most varied couvert selection of our trip. The service was outstanding, from the moment we arrived it just had the feel of a restaurant that knows what it's doing.

Most restaurants in Portugal are very generous when it comes to meal portions but no one as generous as Dom Sebastiao. I ordered the Seafood Platter which came with rice. What I expected was a plate full of rice with sprinkled seafood, what I got was a meal large enough for 2 people. The Seafood and rice were boiling in... More
