I fancied some fish, and was told about this restaurant. I was welcomed by a helpful waiter , who helped me chose some nice fresh fish, with salad and garlic potatoes, and a nice glass of wine. I enjoyed my afternoon here, prices were average, but as the boat crossing had finished for the season, the restaurant was out of... More

2nd visit to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Food is simple yet superb, the service is always friendly and the wine is fantastic for the price. 34 euros for 2 to dine with a bottle of wine. Would recommend the seabass portion and all you can eat fish platter. Our favourite restaurant in Lagos.

Great service and very fresh and local. I would recommend to drive or get the 60c little short ferry across, as we walked over the bridge in the midday heat. Great staff and great atmosphere. A++.

We had sea bass for lunch with a bottle of wine they recommended which was excellent. For dinner I had all you can eat fish, salmon, sea bass sardines and bream... More

The only real fishery where you can eat fresh fish until your belly explodes :) We live in Romania and have a lot of fisheries / restaurants / places where you can eat good fish but the Barrigada fish is the most tasty fish ever eaten. Add the people serving it and you will find the best place to eat... More

And we was very happy we did . The fish was unbelievably good with a fresh salad and potato with a little garlic butter , lovely. Price was... More

We was actually recommended by another restaurant in the area to try here as the owner knew I liked fish. So we went initially to find the place and as others have said DO NOT be put off by the location and outside appearance.We booked (fortunately)and arrived to find the restaurant packed with mainly Portuguese and their families. Always a... More
