Always go to this restaurant when we are in Lagos .It was always my favorite.I know it's late July but just because you are busy there is no need to be rude .When finished our meal no one even thanked us for our custom .When we have been there earlier in season it's so much better .Maybe should get extra...

Have visited several times out of season and was treated with courtesy we also been for Valentines night which was excellent. However have just arrived in Portugal with my son and his family and took them there for a meal. We were treated with total discourteousness. Asked for a table and were told 'no table's. Did not say come back... More

The Don Sebastião restaurante is one of the best restaurants in Lagos, right at the tourist area, and yet with a touch of local air. There is just one catch: you must make reservations and you must arrive no later than 19:30h. Yes, don't forget that there is a covered parking space very near to the restaurant.

Discovered this restaurant on the last night of our stay in Lagos. Wish we'd found it sooner. Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous setting. If you're looking for an authentic Portuguese restaurant with freshly prepared ingredients, look no further than here. Amazing!!

We visited this restaurant on the basis of s very good reputation; both on Tripadvisor and Via Michelin. It unfortunately didn't quite live up to our expectations. There is in a way too much here. The food, location and premises are first class. But: we were as customers not seen and appreciated at all; we felt that we was there... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. We didn't have a reservation but were lucky to get the last table available on their patio. It was very busy throughout the evening. Decor and service are first class and so is the food and wine. We ordered pork cheeks and fish and shrimp Cataplana, followed by... More

This was recommended to us by a few people that lived in Portugal and was nice. The meat portions are more generous than the fish, but the fish usually has different sizes available. The restaurant seems a bit dated, but think that is just Portuguese decor. Definitely nicer sitting outside if you can.

Our meal quickly became awkward and not very enjoyable as they were clearly too busy and appeared unable to cope with the pressure. We felt so rushed when ordering and like we were a nuisance by asking any questions. The guy who served us most appeared to be the owner or manager and we found him very rude. The starters... More

Very good atmosphere and the food is wonderfull. I have eaten seafood rizoto first and I enjoyed it so much that I have visited it again on the next day again. This time I ate grilled tuna that was excellent as well.
