No personality, boring place and low motivation on the service. Typical tourist-trap most visitors end up at during one of the first evenings in the city. A waste of time.

I went in a quite big group to have lunch in this restaurant. Probably when you go there and you choose the meal it might be better, mine was a buffet lunch; it was good, without being exceptional. Enjoy!

Ate there twice. Wonderful place. It can get busy, so gets too crowded (around 7) or just wait for a little while. They did mix up my order a bit on both occassions, but all the food is yummy so I was happy.

I had beef in pepper sauce and it wasn't really worth the money. The meat was overcoocked and the sauce was a little tasteless.

Whilst staying in São Tomé we visited this restaurant every day. The food here is amazing and the staff so friendly and helpful. If you're ever in São Tomé not to be missed.

Ate here many times during an extended visit to the island. The food is invariably good and the restaurant has a great reputation with the locals. You can't go wrong ordering almost any fish or seafood. The service can be a bit spotty. I have...More

We found Papa Figo by chance on a Sunday. Had seafood curry and grilled fish. Both were delicious. Service wasn’t fast but everything is cooked fresh. Definitely recommend
