This place is lovely. Great authentic look, great food, good value, good service. Live background music was pleasant. The bar next door is also lovely. Definitely worth a visit

very average - and expensive. I suspect it caters for folks who stay in the Tivoli and don't want to walk too far - to better alternatives

We had the first meal of the holiday here and thought it was good. Beef Stroganoff and a T-Bone Steak. After the meal we had a few drinks in the nice and friendly bar. Although we never returned for another meal we did use the bar again as a bit of a local. The service was good and the staff... More

We left our visit to O Artista for the last night - a family dinner. Great food, presentation and awesome service. Our 3 yr old was a fan from the moment the chef made a complimentary happy face plate out of coulis and fruit as a pre-entree for her instead of just for us - nice touch. Great food allround... More

This bar/restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. Bit of a find but her directions were good. Lovely place full of character and atmosphere. Very welcoming. Had bread to start/share its a huge portion. Was offered the specials so opted for sea bream which they were happy to fillet for me, whilst my husband had the monkfish kebab. Both... More

I stayed at the Tivoli hotel across the road so as you will see hard to miss the Artista and the bar next door Louis. Borh owned by same person. We found the staff and owner to be very friendly. We tended to start most evenings in one or the other eating in the artista probably 3 times during our... More

Another trip advisor recommendation that really didn't fit the bill. The restaurant was a cross between an Irish bar and a traditional Portuguese bar, not sure what it was really full of local expats. The food was exactly what it said on the tin, nothing more or nothing less. The positives were the entertainment and the staff who were very... More
