Worth seeking out - only a few mins up the hill from town, this restaurant serves great food, and the service was brilliant. Do make the effort to go!

It may be a bit out of the way, but this is a great little find for authentic Portuguese food. The Monkfish kebabs are wonderful. We liked it so much we came here on two consecutive nights. Highly recommended!

This was our best meal out during our week long holiday. We were recommended this restaurant for steaks and we weren’t disappointed. It’s a bit off the beaten track, but well worth tracking down. It has a homely feel with very good and friendly service...More

We went here with no expectations as most times we'd passed by they seemed to be closed. Lovely restaurant behind a cosy small bar. Tight menu all cooked by Alberto. I had shrimp rice and herself had the salmon. Both delicious. Will revisit regularly.

Chef creates a wide variety of excellent food right in front of their guests. My wife always chooses a seat facing the open kitchen to watch this very talented chef. The quality, service and portions are the best for us in Lagos. It is worth...More

We were recommended to vsiit this place. It did not disappoint and whilst the service was not the quickest, this appeas to be the pace the Portugese wish to move at. I would certainly recommend the Uruguayan steak, which was livingly cooked by the owner.
