At first I was a little wary -- this restaurant sits above the bluff over Camilo Beach and has a great view; typically this kind of restaurant has little incentive to make their food great. But my suspicion was quickly dispelled: this restaurant has excellent food. Of course, you have to try their seafood: we had grilled a Tiger Prawn and a grilled Golden Sea Bream, both were delicious. Their Sangria is pretty good too, especially on a hot day.

If you eat too much? No problem! Take a stroll down the stairs to Camilo Beach, heck, you can even take a swim. I think this is one of the best restaurant in Lagos all things considered.

The staff has such pride in the preparation of your meal. You can select from multiple choices of the catch of the day, and your waiter will point out to you where it was caught since it overlooks the sea and an incredible beach. Our favorite was the Cataplana stew, a specialty that you need to order the day before. This was the best find of our Portugal vacation!

We booked into O Camilo after the recommendation of our hotel. A short walk from our accomodation is this magnificent restaurant set on the cliffs looking over the bay. We had the grilled fish in garlic butter and O Camilo chicken, both fresh with excellent flavours. The wine list and menu are extensive with fresh seafood an important part of this establishment. The service was efficient and friendly.

The thing that attracts you to this restaurant is the view - and it's great.

Food wise it's ok - the usual Portuguese choices of food and lots of fish. The accompaniments with our dishes were very overdone - the green beans almost disintegrated on their way to our plates.

The service was good - the waiters were attentive and friendly and I didn't at any point feel rushed or waiting for service despite the fact the restaurant was full.

We had to book a day in advance for dinner. I imagine in high season you would need to book a few days in advance.
