We went there based on the good reviews found on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The service is friendly and honest, the food wonderfully prepared and in the end we got a bill for 20€/person including starters, main course, wine and dessert. It was really really good =)

As locals living in Lagos, we´re creatures of habit for the good restaurants.
Alcaide is definitely in the top 3 Portuguese restaurants in town.

Cozy and well decorated, amazing beef (from Portugal???) yup not Argentina or Scotland and the pasta is the best in town.

The chef even came out to all the tables to make sure all was well.

If you´re in town definitely check this place out.

Have tried a few restaurants in Lagos this week as we have 14 Golfers to look after in Lagos next week.
Just had one of the finest meals I have had in a while good food, great value and pleasant service. It's Portuguese food but presenters in a contemporary style.
Just made booking for 14.
Well worth the walk to get there.

I ended up eating here by asking in a cafe where I could find good pasta, and the restaurant owner's son just happened to be there. 4 complimentary hor d'oeuvres, a basket of croutes, 1 spaghetti vongole, 1 tomato salad, 1 glass of white, a shot of complimentary moscatel and a fig sweet later (oink!) a bill arrived for €17. For post-financial crisis austerity dining without sacrificing quality of experience, my best find yet!

We ate here twice during our stay in Lagos because it was that good! Plus the owner and his son were a joy to talk to since the place was not busy when we visited (low season). From our two visit here, we had the fish soup, Alcaide Octopus and Shrimp, Octopus and Clams, sole fillet w/shrimp sauce, and king prawns in green pepper sauce. The fish soup is a must try. I must say, every single dish was excellent! Make sure you ask the owner for his recommendation on the wine to pair with your food. He has good stuff that's not on the wine list as well.

It's located next to Casa do Pintor, which is also very good, but I think you get more for your money here and there's more choices on the menu here.
