Portuguese Restaurant Great Value

After shopping in the Vegetable Market in Lagos on a Saturday morning. We love to pop into the Atalia for lunch. Ample parking outside. You can eat inside or out. Great food, 3 courses including 1/2 litre of wine per person if you choose one of the "Specials of the Day" under 12 euros each

After waiting 20-25 minutes we were disappointed that the waitress advised us that the Beef Stew had sold out, and one of the... More

We saw this restaurant when walking from Boavista into the town of Lagos and thought it must be good as so many cars were outside, we were not wrong. Lovely food and excellent service. The chef was very busy and everything was fresh and hot. We loved the bread rolls, best we had had in a week. Good fish and... More

Atalaia is very much a local Portuguese restaurant, offering local food, at very reasonable prices. The lunch menu is 8.50 Euro per person and provides bread, olives, soup, a good selection of main courses, dessert, an espresso and half a litre of white or red wine. The main courses vary each day, but normally includes meat and fish dishes. For... More

The others had the fish which looked dry but they said was very good. The puds were all just great! The staff and service were friendly and good. The carafes of both red... More

I have been eating at this restaurant for well over 2 years & all I can say is that I have never been disappointed, the food is great & the service (for a very busy lunch time) is fantastic considering.
