We are an elegant, cozy, and intimate restaurant in the heart of Lagos. We serve Portuguese cuisine with a twist and always use fresh local ingredients. We provide a warm and attentive service. Our restaurant seats 22 guests indoors and 8 on the terrace facing the street. This is a perfect spot for a nice lunch or a relaxed dinner.

The whole ambiance of the hotel is lovely. Tables exquisite. Food gorgeous though you have to wait a while between courses as everything is cooked to order. Host/Waiter is very good. Pre dinner driinks are expensive i.e. Gin and tonic is 10 Euros.
