not so many use it now.

Last used this place 4 years ago and it is much the same as it was then, I have to say I only had drinks in here. There seems to be plenty of people in the front end of the bar area but not so many having food on the nights we went in. The entertainment is well worth going... read more

Quirky, but great food, burgers are just as good as some in the town at twice the price. The owner Luis is really friendly and has brilliant local knowledge. Just at the bottom of the drive from the Tivoli hotel.

Having just returned from Lagos we had many enjoyable nights in the O'Arista. The food we had was excellent and good prices. On a Tuesday there was a local 2 guys on the guitar who were brilliant. We can highly recommend this place.

Have visited this restaurant several times over last few years. Staff always friendly and welcoming. Food good and plentiful and great choices. It can be quiet when weather is good and busy when weather is windy or cool as all is based inside. Live music many nights but not too loud and intrusive. Prices very reasonable too for what you...

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.

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 under the impression of it being... More
