The Fado singer tonight, with her two guitarists, was lovely to listen to. No extra charge for this Friday night extra. I can understand some of the comments on here about the service. The boss is a bit dour, and because everything is cooked fresh...More

One of the best meals we've had while in Portugal. We had the Clams Bulhao Pato and Mixed Seafood Cataplana. Definitely a must try. Order bread (we had the garlic bread) to dip into the sauce.

Warm small place on a busy restaurant way. Nice paella with crunchy rice. We ordered a side of chorizo that was on fire. Let it burn and get crispy. Great regional wine list too.

The lobster cocktail is amazing, worth paying the extra euro from the normal prawn cocktail. Their steak on the stone is brilliant as you can cook your meat to your own taste. The owner remembered my husband from previous trips. He also remembered that he...More

Someone else said 'consistently great'. I agree. We visit every time we come to Lagos (which is frequently) and have never had a bad meal. It is a family run restaurant with a lovely traditional feel. Service is always excellent and you are treated like...More
