This was the best meal we had in Lagos...our family of four had dinner here in the evening, sitting outside, with an incredible view of the ocean and coastline. Our server was so helpful, and gave us great recommendations on picking out a fresh whole...fish on display on ice. We had the octopus, a grilled whole fish, and dessert. We were given blankets because it was a little chilly and they provided blankets.....This was definitely a fine dining experience unlike any other we had in Lagos.More

Second visit in 6 months. Booked ahead (a month ahead just to be sure) Nice, friendly atmosphere. Very good English spoken. Superb fresh fish with daily options. Child friendly options were also excellent (burger). Good wine list and very good cocktails. Fish cooked to perfection...(red bream). Good portion of large sardines. Would recommend (and I am fussy)...More

This lovely restaurant situated in the cliff above Camilo beach is a must for fish lovers but does cater to all tastes. Anna and the team are perfect hosts providing excellent service, value and ambience. We shared a mix of hot and cold starters with...the fish soup winning a lot of praise. Simple touches like a flight of flavoured butters to go with bread really brought the meal to the next level. Four of our hungry golfers shared a large John Dory and we’re delighted with their choice. The Sea Bass was beautiful as well. Anna was asked to recommend the wines and she chose two well prices Portuguese. You need to book in advance and also think about pre-ordering some of the specialities 24 hours in advance like the beautiful Cataplana for two. For the standard on offer here it’s fantastic value and with the short trip out of Lagos town.More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. We were lucky to be taken in as it was very busy. The food and the service were excellent. We had prawns , octopus , calamari and oysters and every single dish was very well prepared and so...fresh. One if the best seafood we ever had. It is a must in Algarve and make sure you book it. We will definitely be back !More

Came here for a late lunch. I rang to book in advance which is definitely the thing to do as it was busy! This place is fabulous! We sat outside with beautiful views. The staff were very friendly , especially a lovely lady who took...me to view all of the fresh fish , explaining what they were and how they would be cooked. My husband and I shared a huge golden bream which was filleted for us at our table (by the lovely waitress ,name unknown). The fish was sensational and we had a lovely afternoon. Really looking forward to returning!More

Our high expectations due to the online reviews were unfortunately not met. The food was done properly and fresh but nothing that stands out if we compare it to other restaurants in the area. Overall lacks in creativity and overhyped in our opinion.

How can you dine in Lagos without a stunning ocean view the town has to offer? Even on a crowded afternoon, we got our table fairly quickly, outside, and the waiter offered helpful recommendations. I know you're supposed to eat seafood at a seafood restaurant,...or you might be disappointed, but my chicken was so tender and flavorful that I think I had the best plate at the table. Extra points for attentiveness.More

Excellent on all counts...the staff was friendly, very knowledgeable - ( I asked about the proper preparation of Octopus, and he gave me the whole story ! ). Good wine selection, great atmosphere....definitely a cut above the rest.

That’s a shame. It’s worth trying again if you can. It is also worth calling before to make a reservation. Their Website says they are closed Mondays.

Hi. Their Website says they are closed 25th December and 1st January, so are open New Years Eve. It would be an amazing place to see the New Year in.
