An essential part of being back in Lagos is to revisit Fernandos - a legendary and absolutely outstanding restaurant. Unsurprisingly, this Summer is just as previous visits. Fernando's is renowned for meat - with very good reason. The steaks are world class - always. Service is also always first class - friendliness and efficiency are guaranteed. Fernando's is understandably popular... More

Most of them were very good but there were one or two poor ones. We kept talking about Fernandos and how good it is so on our last night relented... More

You always get a warm welcome from the young lady who owns and runs this restaurant. My wife and I both had steaks which were cooked as ordered. An excellent wine recommendation helped to complete our meal. We'll be back again.

This was our third visit as a group of six golfers to Lagos and on each occasion we have our final meal of the tour at Fernando's. This years dinner was of the same high standard as the last visits. We all chose a steak (as usual), the quality of both the food and service was exquisite. It is a... More

It is the best place that you can find in algarve. Fantastic lady that owns this place and works as a waiter, serves for you the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner. Love this place.
