Saw this Restaurant whilst exploring the Town and the menu looked enticing. Read several reviews and decided to give it a try and so very glad we did. Although it was a Monday evening and very quiet we were treated to a fantastic gastronomic feast of fresh fish. The staff and chefs were very friendly and made us very welcome.... More

Once again a lovely evening in this simple but great restaurant, we made a booking informing them that we would be bringing a baby with us, we assumed all would be okay, but when we got there a car booster seat was given to us, to hold my 7month old grandson, when it became clear this would not hold him...

Our first visit to Lagos and this lovely restaurant; excellent service, exquisite couvert of prawns, pate etc. Lovely atmosphere and spotlessly clean. Enjoyed chateaubriand although the fresh fish the waiter brought for us to see looked wonderful so can't wait to go back!

My husband and I had a delightful dinner at Restaurante O Alcaide. When they offer the house h'ordeuvres do NOT send refuse them. Pâté and garlic herb butter along with toasts topped with lemon aioli and shrimp. Next was a fresh melon which was amazingly sweet and juicy. We went with a wine recommendation from the waiter which was a... More

The first choice was fully booked but this one was much better! Excellent food and adequate staff. Very original atmosphere and not too busy. House wine was very good. Dinner was served with nice vegetables and fries. Appetizers were tasty. A place to return to!

Ate here 2 years ago and was pretty good then - standards are still right up there. Visited with my wife, 4 yr old son and mother-in-law (brave!) Hardly a word spoken whilst we ate - think that says it all!!

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
