First time in this restaurant, it was a fabulous experience. The food was simply gorgeous, the service was excellent and atmosphere was lovely. We will definately be returning to this restaurant on our next visit to Lagos..

Have been to Artistas normally twice a year for the last ten years. We go because when it is good it can be very good however sadly the quality is somewhat variable. And I would suggest very strongly it does not warrant twice the money or currently as much money as restaurants such as Navegador or Pizzaria Italia. We had cucumber soup as an appetiser, awfull. My wife's prawns were nice but my guns capaccio was bland. My wife's turbot was over cooked, criminal, and by steak was only ok and half the size it was last year.
In fact I would call it all a bit of a con since at the end of the meal we were given a business card encouraging us to post our comments on trip advisor so that they might get the number one spot in Lagos.
Also the head waiter pretended to be an authority on Portuguese wines and suggested a wine at complete opposites to what was asked. Perhaps he was getting a kickback on that particular wine.
We shall go again but not for two or three years.
Restaurants should get to the top with quality fresh well cooked food not soliciting reviews.

We were recommended this restaurant by our sailing captain who has lived in Lagos most of his life, so he really knows the dining scene. While this restaurant has some of the typical ingredients you would find in Lagos dishes, their menu items are quite different such as: Roast fillet of beef with onion-mustard marmalade, or: Fried tiger prawns with sauce harissa, with glazed zucchini
and confit cherry tomatoes on garlic, and tomato infused green beans and rosemary jus. The interior of the restaurant if warm and inviting and has great original artwork. In the back is a heavenly little inside patio with many plants and white lights. Highly recommended for a great dining experience.

We visited here as a group of 8 for a 50th birthday, it was a little bit more expensive than other restaurant's we visited but the whole thing was amazing. There were little touches along the way that made this the best night we had all week, I've neve had food like this before and it was one if not the best meal I've ever eaten.

We left this restaurant until the last night of our holiday as a special treat. Although I prefer simple traditional Portuguese food to fine dining this was a nice experience.

We booked a garden table and was a bit worried as the evenings were quite cool and breezy but
it was actually a cozy little garden/courtyard with the tables covered with parasols to protect from the breeze and blankets on the chairs if you needed them.

I loved the little touches in this restaurant such as the table decorations, the fairy lights, the blankets. The inside of the restaurants was just as lovely as well.

The food was what I expected and very good and it was nice that the Sommelier talked to us about the wine we had choosen as well as caraffing it for us.

Would recommend for a nice way to finish your holiday.
