Great location and atmosphere

Drinks good value for money - didn't sample the food but looked like typical pub food. Staff attentive. Great atmosphere, if you like sport it's the place to go. Beware - karaoke night is both hilarious and terrifying at the same time. Pure entertainment - will definitely be back!

Given its location, overlooking the stunning Lagos Marina, we'd expected to have to pay more than we did for the pleasure of eating, drinking and sitting here. After much coastal and beach walking on a surprisingly hot March day (28c), we needed somewhere that would be a relaxing environment, and this was perfect. We sat on the partially shaded deck,...

We spent 5 days in Lagos and we ate here twice off the tapas menu. Its a British pub but has a wide variety of food including an excellent tapas menu with load of options. They had a few deals where you could get a number of tapas for a very reasonable price. The staff was very friendly, engaging and... More

My husband and I have visited the lighthouse on several occasions and the food has never disappointed. Please don't be put off by the football/typical English pub atmosphere as the food really is fantastic and also is amazing value. The kitchen staff are Portuguese and all the food is freshly cooked and tastes great...you can't go wrong with the piripiri... More

If you like a good ol' English pub that serves Guinness, all day breakfasts, snacks and more, then the Lighthouse has to be on your list.

Visited The Lighthouse with my family on a few nights during our holiday and they had some fantastic live music that created a fantastic atmosphere. Very busy when there is live music which is great. The band we saw were called The Muskets and they were great! The drinks there are lovely and the staff are really nice. They usually... More

This is a regular for us and bar of choice for ex pat sports watchers. We had a really enjoyable breakfast which is excellent value for money - and plenty of it - and early evening drinks.
