Second time here for dinner for twol. We enjoyed fish soup as a starter, with lamb and fish for our main course and a bottle of wine (all €31). The food was well presented, hot and good portion size. The restaurant was busy, but not full, with a mix of locals and expats. Some background music would have added to... More

....in every way. We love traditional, family run Portuguese restaurants as like to support small businesses but this was tasteless food and awful service. Ordered Couvert and did not arrive, when brought our meals the owner/manager/waiter simply said "my fault" (yes, clearly!). Our daughter's leg was severely marked from the high chair. Of all restaurants visited in Lagos this was... More

Looked forward to visiting after reading lots of positive reviews but we were so disappointed with our meal. I ordered pepper steak which was fine and my wife ordered lamb stew which when it came looked like a dogs dinner with lots of bones and fat and not much lamb. Next to no vegetables and at €9 not cheap. You... More

This is a great little restaurant outside the main touristy restaurant area. It has an extensive menu which offers basic, no frills food in good portions and at good prices. The staff are friendly and helpful and as you can see the kitchen area you can see that the food is being freshly cooked in a clean kitchen area. We... More

Very good for both lunch and dinner, and as it is situated outside the town walls offers great value for money. There is plenty of choice of both fish and meat dishes and I particularly like the lightly battered fish fillets. The wine is also very reasonably priced.
