For a special dining experience without breaking the bank, Artistas is a great choice. The ambience is colourful & lovely with original artwork on the walls & tall glowing candlesticks on the tables. The service is attentive & gracious. The food sublime – fresh, light, tasty, beautifully presented, & served at the perfect temperature. Had a glass of house wine... More

On our arrival in Lagos, we stopped in O Artista for a quick and convenient bite to eat. We were delighted to start our trip with delicious prawns finished with the monk kebabs, recommended by the lovely bartender. From here we ventured next door to Lois's bar to continue our vacation celebration (same owners for both). We absolutely LOVED Luis's!!!... More

My second visit to this restaurant did not disappoint. We ordered tornedo pepper and duck a l'orange. Both were totally delicious, so much so that we switched plates halfway through the meal. We had half a bottle of the house white which complemented the food. This is fast becoming one of our favourite restaurants in Lagos, and we will return... More

We booked one of the three large horseshoe shaped booths at O Artista for a large group to watch a football game which they assured us would be shown on their numerous TV screens. We sat in the rather uncomfortable booth arrangement, the table is too small so you are constantly leaning forward in order to reach it. The football... More

The restaurant is very nice inside, typically Portuguese and the owner is very friendly and speaks good English. My wife and I had the Beef Stroganoff and Filet Pepper Steak, both of which were excellent and we switched plates half way through the meal. The house wine was very nice and reasonable at 8.50 Euros a bottle. Clearly, the lady... More

There was always a warm welcome when you went in and nothing was to much trouble the food we had was served beautifully. There was lots to choose from on the menu. While we were there, there was a man on a guitar and singing songs from the 60's/70's and he got everyone entertained he was really good.
