Fabulous spot for fresh fish. Looked to get mine with head off which they arranged no problem. Potatoes weren't great, should have ordered chips, but fish was amazing. NOTE - this is a cash only restaurant.

If you like fresh fish, this is a must during your visit to Lagos. This is very popular with the locals and it is advisable to book a table. Prices are very reasonable.

The fish is very good at this typical unfussy portugesian restaurant. Wooden benchs and uncomplicated food make a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately the steak was too well done and the waiter forgot our dessert.
