Arrived here 30 minutes ahead of the time we had booked as the walk up the hill hadn't taken quite as long as we expected but as our table was ready they welcomed us in. We didn't take advantage of the fresh fish as my son and daughter wanted fillet steak and I had lamb chops and my husband lamb... More

We were @ this place several years and each year was perfect. Compliment to the the team and the chef cook. You have to try the chateaubriant. Best meat in town. But also the food in general!!! Thanks ! Gunnar

We wanted to eat there with an other family (at 18:30) on a ordinary Tuesday. We did not book any tables so we where told it was not possible for us to eat there. a) I find it hard to believe that they could not seat us at opening time (there was literally nobody inside). The waiter was sitting outside... More

Hello, for your information you were the rude here, cause you did not book any table, your family was a big group, and i had a fully booked restaurant in 20 to 30 minutes after you showed up! I simply cannot sit a group without reservation and let the others outside waiting... I dont even know how is possible for... More

Visited this restaurant on our last night & wished we had gone before! Its a little way out of town, up a steep hill but worth the effort. It has a portugese/italian menu & we all enjoyed our meal. Reasonably priced & good service. Will return when we are next in Lagos.

We really enjoyed the food as well as the service in this restaurant. It was the best dinner we have eaten in Lagos. We have got fried calamaris and the clamps as starter, and steak and king prawns as main dish ... all of them were very nice.

Visited this very welcoming restaurant during a 10 night stay in Lagos. The owner welcomed us in to his restaurant and obviously takes great pride in offering quality food and a great service. My husband and I had the calamari starter and shrimps in garlic which were fantastic as was the spaghetti with chicken and mushroom and lasagne. This restaurant... More

Off the beaten path and well worth the drive. The best fish we had in Algarve. We started with the fried shrimp in garlic and oil. For the entree we had the fresh fish of the day - grilled dorado. The food was delicious and paired well with the wine. Would highly recommend this place! By the way this restaurant... More

We had a fantastic meal tonight with our family. In an unusual circumstance there was no children's menu as we have 4 children under 12 but it did not matter. We could order what we liked in half potions with no skimping at all. All food was perfectly prepared and was very fresh. Like previous commentators we could not recommend... More
