In this restaurant is better to make a reservation, because is every time full and lot of people waiting outside for a table...Worth the Wait.. nice staff and really good home made food, fresh fish, sea food..if not try this restaurant, you were not in Lagos! :)

“Best meal of the whole trip!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Casinha do Petisco made our stay in Lagos. We went back to this restaurant for dinner both nights. You do have to wait but that's part of the fun - we stood outside on the cobblestones with drinks in hand from the nearby pub and chatted to all others in the queue. The food is worth the wait! It is absolutely stunning - we tried the spaghetti prawns, home-made prawns and the beef mignon - all amazing. Surprisingly the beef mignon was our favourite. The owner cooks all of the food and he is so friendly and humble. A great experience all around!

Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

ate here on our first night in Lagos, recommended by the hotel staff. lovely fresh fish. service was a little slow at times, but generally good. eating outside was nice, though the street iis on a slope. all in all, a nice meal and would eat there again if we go back.

“Fab meal”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Best meal I had in Portugal. We waited about 45 minutes to be seated, but it was so worth it!!! We had the house Cataplana for 2....It would of feed easily 3-4 people!! What a gem for the price!!

“Very popular local restaurant”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

A small restaurant within the city walls seating 30 maximum. It is advisable to book as it is nearly always full.

The menu is exclusively Portuguese and the portions huge. One portion is easily enough for two people. This may explain the popularity of the place. This would also rate the place as (£) on that basis.
