Restaurant is well worth a visit - old-fashioned Portugal cuisine and atmosphere. Menu is of a superb standard and the food delivers on that promise. Dishes quickly arrived and was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious . The prices are reasonable and they take credit cards

Came here during a week stay in Lagos after my partner recommended it. Had high expectations of the food. Partner ordered kid in red wine which was as delicious as the last time he ate here. I ordered a sea bass fillet with roasted vegetables, the sea bass was overcooked and bland and non of the vegetables were cooked properly.... More

I'm just seating in restaurant Don Sebastiano and first impression was good but like every south people they are lazy and don't care of details. I saw signed Michelin and trip advisor so we came and seated here. I ordered onion soup but was not good but my wife took gaspacho and it was about 8/10. For our6 years old... More

busy day all tables taken but waiter attentive not pushy. had fish soup, delicious flavour and good pieces of fish. had cataplana with prawns and fish. cooked just right, potatoes not mushy, good seasoning, plenty of fish- the corvina steak was beautiful. had the pear dessert, again faultless. service was good, nothing overpriced, immaculately clean table linen, clean tidy toilet....

A little more expensive than I usually like to pay, but once over the course of a week is no bad thing. Somewhat of a surprise as it's on Rua 25 April which is unadorned with a number of fairly generic international style restaurants. Dom Sebastiao is a treat, in the old-fashioned Algarvian sense. Fish is presented before choosing (beware,... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit to get a sense of old-fashioned Portugal and its cuisine. They offer a great range of starters and main courses, although not much for vegetarians (as used to be typical in the Algarve). I ate a delicious dish of pork cheeks slow cooked which were meltingly soft. My family had fresh fish dishes... More

There are tons of restaurants along the same street as Dom Sebastiao. We have over the years tried many of them but this is by far the best. The quality of the food is very high & the menu more interesting & varied than most. It is traditional in Portugal to offer couvert. The simplest is bread & butter but... More

Although it is on a 'Restaurant Strip' in the heart of town amongst dozens of restaurants that I would never go into - @those with the pushy waiters outside asking you to go in as if their live's depended on it, this is a gem! Menu is of a superb standard and the food delivers on that promise well, the... More

My husband and I ate here during our recent holiday. Having grown frustrated with the poor restaurant at our half board hotel we decided to eat out in the old town. We chose Dom Sebastiao as the menu was more sophisticated and interesting than a lot of the others on offer, with a wide variety and fish including lobster and... More
