Was recommended this place by the receptionist of the hotel I was staying in which was coincidentally up the street. Without this recommendation I wouldn't have even noticed the place was there as it was so understated. For my late lunch I had the Francesinha...More

My wife and I came here with high expectations - we’d been hearing about this sandwich since our stay in Lagos 2 nights ago and had been researching the best place to eat it. Bufete Fase it was! The place itself is fine - clean,...More

Really loved this place. A group of six of us arrived at lunch time and were greeted by a friendly lady who pushed two tables together. "6 Francesinhas and 6 beers", she asked? We all nodded and that was that! Uncomplicated, no frills, non touristy...More
