This is very hand for the Tivoli - across the road - and is a good place to go for both drinks and food. Not particularly Portuguese, it looks to be frequented by people like us (a golf group) or ex-pats.

I have been coming to Lagos at least twice a year for the last 14 years and have eaten in so many great restaurants ..somehow had never tried this place. It was our last night at the end of our October break so checked out TripAdvisor and this looked like a good option. What a total let down it was.... More

For a mid-late afternoon drink, we found this bar very convenient and also extremely price competitive. The service was swift and polite; the caipirinha cocktails were 5 euros, very strong and well made. A 200ml glass of wine was between 1.60 and 2.50 euros, depending on type/vintage etc.

The staff are very friendly, the restaurant spotlessly clean and the menu varied. I've been going to O Artista for 28years and had delicious meals every time!

Lovely meal, to be honest of a much higher standard than we were expecting to find in Lagos. Comparable with other Michelin-recommended restaurants we have been to in Europe, their tasting menu indicated that perhaps they would like a star :-) Lovely service and general ambiance.

I came here with my husband for dinner near our hotel. It was a quick trip advisor find and we had an excellent meal. I had the monkfish skewer which was very nice and my husband had the lamb which he very much enjoyed also. The service was very friendly and overall we had a very nice dining experience here...
