The charcoal grill is the key

Interesting restaurant, tucked away off a side street but worth finding. Limited seating so booking is advisable. The main feature of this place is the charcoal grill, most food done on this and the flavours and standards are high. sirloin steak excellent..lovely fish too...potatoes or rice as... read more

Interesting restaurant, tucked away off a side street but worth finding. Limited seating so booking is advisable. The main feature of this place is the charcoal grill, most food done on this and the flavours and standards are high. sirloin steak excellent..lovely fish too...potatoes or rice as sides..more choice of veg would help. Friendly staff..overall very good.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying in Lagos from the 5 to the 15 May and only found this little gem on our last night. All meat and fish is beautifully cooked on the grill to the clients taste and served with either new potatoes or rice and a lovely fresh salad. We were made most welcome... More

Amazing food and a great host. Fully booked when we arrived early doors, but told to come back and they'd made space for us. Cannot recommend enough.

This is one of the smallest restaurants we went to in Lagos, but that is the charm of Arribale. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and the food, of which some is cooked on the open grill as you walk into the place is amazing. We ate here twice and enjoyed beatiful rib-eye steak, ribs and sea-bass... More

Would struggle to find better. Lovely setting, wonderful food from an excellent chef and a friendly owner who treats you like a friend not a customer.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of trip advisor and were not disappointed. Three of us, having chicken, lamb chops and spare ribs, agreed that it was the best meal we have had while on holidays. Its a quaint little restaurant with only 5 or 6 tables available & we did book in advance. We are finishing our... More

This is a cosy, friendly tiny restaurant serving excellent food. My son had the steak and it was delicious and large enough to satisfy his usually ravenous appetite. We shared some plates of tapas, that were generous and very tasty. I especially recommend the satay chicken and the garlic prawns! Service was good and we will certainly visit regularly.

Was lucky enough to eat there for first time during recent holiday and was best place we have eaten in Portugal, bar none. Food, wine, music, service, everything is spot on. Well worth seeking out if you are in the Algarve.

My sister and I had lunch together. The food from the set lunch menu was really tasty and good value....especially to be seated in such lovely surroundings.....far from the chains that do a similarly priced lunch.... The service was very good. I accidentally split some wine on my food and it was quickly swapped for s brand new plate of... More
