“Good food and pleasant bar with a nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This place was close to where we were staying and so it was convenient for breakfast, a beer at lunchtime or snacks with the kids. My kids particularly enjoyed it as they did lots of traditional English dishes. If you like traditional Portugese food then you won't like it here but its not trying to be anything other than a friendly local bar serving decent pub grub. We enjoyed the friendly service and the menu choice. The best thing about it is the location, as you can sit and look at the comings and goings of Marina life in the sunshine. We preferred it as a daytime location for that reason. The don't serve food after 9pm.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Not the most picturesque place to eat but the view accross the Marina makes up for that. We liked to stop off here for a late afternoon lunch or when we wanted an early evening meal. Not a place if you are looking for fancy food but it is if you want good food. It is well cooked, there is a good choice and overall value hard to beat. The service was very prompt and one girl especially was very patient as I tried out my Portugese.

It is what it is a greasy spoon no more no less with beautiful views over the marina.
Great hangover food but that's it.

“Sunny Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The food, Breakfasts, Lunch, Small Bites ( Chicken Wings and Calamari are great) and Dinner are really good but the really strong point is the location.

Beautiful view and its a real suntrap. A lot of bars in Lagos are not really in sunny locations (particularly in the afternoon) This is perfect. Cold beer on a hot day.

3 big TV screens for Football, GAA and Rugby (Munster Fan Alert) and they DO show whatever games are posted up. The sound is turned on as well so you wont have to listen to MTV while watching the game.

“Great view, free WiFi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

When the weather is in the 90s, what better than enjoying a light lunch while sitting in the shade and looking at boats?

The Marina Bar is in a fantastic location and offers good food at reasonable prices. The Daily Specials come with a glass of wine or a large beer, which made the Cajun Chicken Salsd great value at 8 Euros. It was also very tasty.

I couldn't manage a dessert but my wife reckoned the Almond Tart was heavenly.

The experience was heightened by 70s music in the background - Gold FM, our favourite UK station.
