Entertaining dinner

It was our second visit to Lagos. We decided not to have dinner at the hotel but explore the restaurants in the city instead. After walking around we decided to enter O Artista. Despite looking a bit cramped inside and the tonne of information on the wall outside, we took our chances. We were... read more

I can not fault the service & the welcome we received. However my rating is applied across the whole experience. I didn't rate the food highly, it was ok. The monkfish kebab was overcooked, the other meals were ok. I had a glass of red wine which was terrible - considering this is Portugal with some of the best wines... More

This restaurant is a little off the beaten track but I recommend it highly. The welcome was warm, the menu extensive, the atmosphere lively and the food amazing. Try the White sangria here, it's very nice too. I had the Gorganzola Tournedos, a taste sensation. Staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Enjoyed a meal in this very busy restaurant/bar on one evening. The meal was fine, but I considered the quantity small. Price was mid-range. Service was good, but not the best restaurant in Lagos. Musical entertainment each evening was good.

Ate here on our first night in Lagos, very good food and wine with excellent service. Great value for money, my roast lamb was beautiful, mint sauce too! My husband enjoyed some beautifully cooked swordfish. Live music but not too loud, you could still talk and a great atmosphere .

Interesting place, think €15 a head for food and booze, so reasonably priced. Has a good mix of tourists plus expats. Serves peroni but the Sagres is better. Food is definitely plentiful so you will not leave hungry plus shows all the main sporting events. We had food the night before then returned the next day to watch the six... More

Quite simply the best place to go when you are in Lagos. Live entertainment every night, friendly and attentive staff, good food and a great atmosphere. We visit every time we are in Lagos.

During our recent stay in Lagos, we visited O Artista every evening for a nightcap. The staff were very welcoming. They had karaoke and live singers each night. We didn't eat out here but it was busy some evenings. Service was quick and efficient and free wifi was great. Definitely worth a visit.
