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

This out of the way restaurant at the end of the fishing harbour is not in the most prestigous spot in Lagos but if you want to eat fabulous fresh fish and enjoy excellent service and good value this is a great find

This restaurant is not in the main streets of lagos but easily found across the river by the beach and marina. Not the most attractive of restaurants on the outside but certainly one of the friendliest with excellent food at reasonable prices. For me this was my favourite of those we visited and I would certainly go again. Try the... More

Far from the tourist places of Lagos, you will find this original Portuguese restaurant in the middle of nowhere but from my point of view it is one of the best in Lagos. I did not eat inside but the big room looked very nice. Outside very few tables so you need to come early to get seats. I do... More
