Best Ocean View of local resturants

Didn't know any of the restaurants. Went hunting for Ocean View. Saw this one with a high up terrace while we were checking one just below. Entrance was tricky to find. VERY friendly staff. All spoke english, the menu was in Portuguese, German, English, so this is a tourist place. That said, it not... read more

Great view, but that's all. The food it's not typical Portuguese food in resume it's a typical restaurant for tourists. Don't come again.

Our visit started really well, we had a seat upstairs with a great view although the tables of 2 are so close together that you had to accept that even speaking really quietly you could be overheard and easily hear others conversations. The bread and olives and starters of clams were really nice. For main I ordered a portuguese steak... More

So we found a little business card with a nice note on it in our rented apartment recommending this place, so we made reservations and were really looking forward to it. As for the service, it was prompt and professional, the view was indeed quite nice, but the food was a real disappointment considering all of these glowing reviews. I... More

We had a meal here last night with my mother and father who were here for a visit. Carlos the owner is so attentive, the food is great, and the view over the river to Alvor is just stunning. We had the Monk Fish and rice, as we'll as the Sword Fish and Steak. Carlos really knows his fish, so... More

We were treated like important valued guests with impeccable service and hospitality. I had the tiger prawns which were amazing tasting sweet and tender with outstanding flavor. They are a bit like a lobster but sweeter in flavor. I can highly recommend them. They come grilled with a dipping sauce. My husband had the sea bass which he said was... More

This was our second time to eat in Navegador restaurant. Not only do you get to eat a lovely dinner overlooking the harbour, beach and Alvor in the distance, the food is excellent and the waiter is very friendly. I will definitely put this restaurant on my list to come back to.

We have been living in Lagos for the last 18 months and kept saying we should go for a meal. We booked a table upstairs with a window view, and I have to say it was stunning. The service from Carlos and Roger was 1st class, although it is out of season, you will have to book a table if... More
