This is a quaint,20- seater French bistro where service is determined by le chef who presents his credentials with your dishes. We had a wine suggested by our waiter and were well and truly in a happy place when our orders eventually came. We had quail salad and the duck in honey sauce. Great marriage of flavours and heady notes on the palate

We have heard lots about Vista Alegre, all good and at last today we got to try it for ourselves. Well worth the wait. Great service and great food. A little gem of a place hidden in the back street, in the old town of Lagos. We were made to feel so welcome, like coming into the owners home. Lots of choices, many different dishes from this wonderful French chef & can't wait to go back again. Definitely a bit more expensive, but so worth it and for a special treat - a real winner.

We visit the Vista Alegre on every holiday for the authentic French Food and the welcome from the owners. On this occasion, the fish soup, sole Meniere, duck breasts and the steak definitely gives the Alegre a five star grading

Visit this restaurant regularly as we visit Lagos about 5 times a year. The welcome is always fantastic and it is always difficult to choose as all the dishes are delicious!!! There are usually two or three specials in addition to the standard menu. Specially recommended are the lobster bisque and the fisherman's salad as starters and the lamb and steaks for mains. The food is freshly cooked by the French owner and his Portuguese wife looks after front-of-house. If it is busy, be prepared to wait a while as it is all freshly cooked. Definitely one of our favourite places in Lagos and not overly expensive.

On this, our fourth visit to Vista Alegre, we decided it was definitely our favourite restaurant in the West Algarve.

The service and food quality were without fault. For four people with 3 courses each and 3 bottles of wine, coffee and liqueurs, the bill came to €189.

Highly recommended.
