Lovely location, great staff and excellent food. I always have the Prawn Curry. There was 8 in our group and they rearranged the tables to meet guidelines without any fuss and we hadn't booked. One of our party even went for a swim in the...sea beside our table before eating.More

This is a regular restaurant to come to when we visit Lagos but sadly we only managed to visit once this year during the 2 week window in September. The food was excellent as always, the chateaubriand was cooked perfectly as usual. The views from...the open balcony at the top of the restaurant are great overlooking the mouth of the marina entrance plus the great views over the Bay of Lagos. The restaurant is Covid compliant .The service here is really good. Just looking forward to visiting again - whenever we get back to ‘normality’More

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant based on the good reviews...called to make a booking & therestaurant wasn’t open yet so I called back after the opening still with no answer so I left my reservation details including phone number on their answering...machine...the reservation was made a day in advance for a window table on the top floor...no call back so I assumed everything was ok...WRONG...I’ve been coming to Lagos for the last 3 years & have never met a rude person until last nite when we arrived to claim our table...NO RESERVATION...NO APOLOGY...his response; if we’re busy we don’t pick up the phone or obviously check messages...I requested a booking for the following day & again was told that it wasn’t possible to book the requested table...we left & will never return...I don’t care how good the food might be due to this horrible rude individual who seemed to be in chargeMore

Ate here in September, first time we have been but certainly not the last. Was really impressed with friendliness of the staff. I had monkfish with mango, it was lovely my wife had the chicken which was also excellent. Sat on the outside watching people...go by. Very relaxed and highly recommended.More

We called on the off chance as we had not booked. We have been in previous years and know that the best tables are on the top floor (there are three floors). We were in luck, we had to wait 10 minutes but got a...window table on the top floor. Result! The views are great, over the water towards the marina. Food great, service excellent and reasonable prices. We had a great night, thanks.More

I’ve been visiting this restaurant on & off over the past 15 years and been coming here more frequently over the past 2 years. The welcome from Carlos & Rogerio is always fantastic. We visited here with 8 friends a few days ago & the...quality of the food was up to its usual excellent standards. We had Chateaubriand, tournedos rossini, grey mullet, Portuguese steak, dourada - all superbly cooked & served with generous portions of potatoes & vegetables. The house white & red whine is of a very good quality & excellent value at €13 / bottle. There was only 1 Tiramisu ordered - v tasty. The complimentary port at the end of the evening was a nice gesture. We had couverts, mains & 7 bottles of wine plus a tip @€40/ head - excellent quality & value. Can’t wait to come back over our stay at New YearMore

The first stimulant was the professional friendly greeting from our waiter and everything on the menu was traditionally Portuguese. Both of our starters and main courses were fish. Our main course was a shared prawn dish that was profoundly unique and cooked to perfection. The...sauce with it we had never tasted before and was delicious. The Portuguese white wine we chose was again superb. Navegador Restaurant is a must for anyone visiting Lagos. Heartfelt thanks to the chef and staff.More

Nice sea view and great service. Delicious food 🤗 I recommende the fish cataplana and king prawns. They have also lamb and steak. We all share everything, so that I have a idea that the chefs know what they do for sure. Thanks to all...the staff that made our evening special. 😀More

Excellent restaurant with stunning sunset view of the marina. The Monkfish Cataplana was delicious. The waiting staff are great and very attentive, including their Port recommendations. Highly recommend this and to book a table with a view on the top floor.

My daughter and myself had a very enjoyable meal at this restaurant on Friday night. The pictures are deceiving on the website the view is not as good as expected from the Terrace it is only good from a very small number of tables. The...staff are not overly friendly they should remember that the customer is the most important element in any business.They need to be more friendly and welcoming to the customer. The food itself was very good except they got one of the orders wrong however they rectified it quickly. We enjoyed our meal but would advise people to avoid the complementary drink,More
