Whilst staying in Lagos we came upon a small Restaurant right at the Harbour entrance on the Marina Side. Wouldn't normally be somewhere I would eat, you go past the train station and stay right and you come across a smallish Restaurant that from the outside looks a little rough and ready. But inside its clean, spacious and the service... More

A basic hut in the sand dunes next to the fishing harbour across the river from the old town of Lagos. Great fresh fish in a totally unpretentious cafe, popular with locals. Good value. To drive there follow signs to railway station and keep to the right.

cool restaurant nice fish, fresh clams cooked simply and well, good wine, by the glass, very good value for money.good prawns. Situated amongst fisherman's sheds and shacks, stacked with lobster and crab pots, so no frills, authentic working fishermen around. We go often for lunch service is good and quick. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant

We went out of our way to come here, you have to walk past the boat repair yard and keep going and you will find it. Looks like nothing from outside but quite nice inside. I ordered the Barrigada fish special for one at €11 and my husband ordered the swordfish. When my plate arrived I couldn't believe it -... More

We ate here a couple of day ago, its on the other side of the river from the main town, the food was lovely, I had swordfish, my wife had sea bass, these were served with potatoes and a tomato salad, it was simple food but everything was cooked really well and packed with flavour.

This is the place to come for fish! For 11eur I had 6 pieces of fish, 4 different kinds. It was too much for one person. Sardines was especially good. Simple way of cooking but good taste. Nice feeling of eating by the habour.

Please don't let the building put you off! Wonderful staff, fantastic food, very reasonably priced wine, clean and frequented by locals, what more could you want?

Like all the other reviews I'd say don't be put off by the exterior of this restaurant, food and service is excellent, I don't eat fish so had the mixed meat kebab, it was cooked perfectly and they must have used good cuts of meat as it was succulent. Not a great selection of wine but very reasonably priced. Closed... More

You can either get here via water taxi or footbridge from main part of lagos. It's not the most visually appealing place in the world but the food is phenomenal. Get a cataplana and you'll find out! As an aside, If you're on foot, plan your trip to coincide with daylight as the walk back to town is not well... More
