Very traditional place with local meals. Nice and helpful waiters who can suggest you wine for the dishes! Quick preparation and service, huge amount of delicious food for fair price. A must visit place in Lagos.

Great shellfish cataplana for two, my wife had a tuna steak which was good and the house wine is passable. Unpretentious, solid coking and helpful waiter.

We visited some time ago but i remember that food was simple but prepared well and tasty. Grilled fish, boiled potatoes and salad. Generous portions and prices were reasonable. We came in at early dinner time and it was very busy.

At the bottom of the main street where the Portugal Football shop is, across from there is a street going back up a hill. This restaurant is best found looking for the blue door. If you are at the football shop you are... More
