Ate here at the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. Fish is local and fresh, literally on ice next to the doorway of dining room. We had the golden breamer, grilled squid and a salmon pasta dish as well as desert. Everything was absolutely fantastic. Views here also can’t be beat. The dining room and patio are basically on a cliff.

Four of us booked a dinner reservation in the afternoon at the Mar while visiting Lagos. We lost track of time and arrived half hour late. This was not an issue for the wait staff, in fact they moved the table they had reserved for us, to another more sheltered table due to the wind. For the rest of the meal the service was first rate, including complimentary glasses of Port at the end. Each of us raved about our meals, the fish was fresh, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We all shared an appetizer that was equally as tasty. Great dinner spot for those traveling in Lagos.

We were driving around to see the local Lagos beaches, to see which would be best to visit the next day.

The Praia Batata & Praia dos Estudantes are beautiful beaches right on the edge of town. For us, although the Meia Praia is a huge and empty beach, the beaches from Lagos centre out to Ponta de Piedade are beautiful and have tons of character.

Anyway, what you need by a good beach is a good bar & restaurant !

This place Mar restaurante & Bar is in the prefect spot. High up to see the view of Lagos, Meia Praia, Batata & Estudantes. Great tables, loveley breeze, snappy and friendly service.

We had only popped in for a drink, and had a jug of Sangria (Tinto). It was brilliant !!
Very well made, not quick and cheap, but full of fruit, flavour and taste.

Price was fine.

Going back tonight for a meal and to watch the next World Cup football match 2018 (Brazil vs. Switzerland)

Stopped by at about 9.30 at night for a beer. Wasn't that busy. Sat outside for over 10 minutes but eventually had to stop waiter to ask for drinks menu. He didn't even acknowledge me so wasn't sure if menu would arrive. 5 minutes later he dropped a menu on the table saying nothing at all and walked off. Even tho the beers were pricey we decided to have a couple. Waited at least another 10 minutes for someone to take our order but despite same waiter who dumped the menu passing us several times, no-one even bothered to take our order. Couldn't believe such bad and BV rude service. Went to old town and got served within 30 seconds of sitting down. Hope management actually read these reviews as it's unacceptable.

My husband and I had THREE amazing meals here in 4 days. We came for dinner and it was the best fish of our trip - we had the grilled grouper - so fresh. Started with the tuna tartare and prawns in olive oil and garlic - both were delicious. We returned for lunch the next day and both had the bacon cheeseburger - it had caramelized onions on it as well - hit the spot and tasted great - they do red meat as well as seafood! We then returned our last night for dinner - got the shrimp wrapped in potato yarn app - amazing!! Also had fresh grilled calamari, the grouper again, and Portugese steak - loved all of them. I really have no complaints about this place - they know how to do food well! Alex, our waiter, was great and offered helpful suggestions.
It's very reasonably priced for a restaurant with the most breathtaking views. Definitely visit the beach down the steps too.
