Excellent food and nice wine list. Very nice ambiance. Service was good. Nice for special occasions. Can dress up instead being so casual.

The restaurant is very cosy with sharp colours, a lovely yard, a well-functioned fireplace and many paintings. The food is grounded yet innovative, well flavoured with amazing flavours.

This restaurant has high ambitions but I wasn't impressed. The venue could use a little touch up and updating, and the staff could use a little more experience. We ordered couverts, main course and dessert. Our waiter was surprisingly bad at wine and even a little bit rude when asked simple questions. We also realised that he was guessing when... More

Let me start by saying that this a good restaurant. Service is perfect. The food is very good but not to the level of what i expect in this pricerange. The wine we had was perfect for its price ( in general we are positive surprised by the quality of the wine in Portugal ) Every dish was well prepared,... More

My husband booked my 40th birthday dinner here. Fantastic choice. You can always tell it's going to be good when you choose an expensive wine and ask if it's good and the waitress says yes but recommends another that's even better and it's €20 cheaper than your original choice and it's fantastic! Service Vs just wanting your money. Love it.... More

We had the the following dishes; pan seared fillet of turbot with truffle crust, spinach, salmon fillet and roll on sweet corn-wasabi purée, sauteéd leek and miso foam, and the roasted black Angus fillet of beef with garlic purée, truffle jus, but without the mushrooms. All of these and the... More

So we decided to go for a fine dining option this year and it was worth every penny! The restaurant was so warm & cozy even though there was an electrical storm & torrential rain, food was amazing and staff very friendly & professional. We did have to wait a while for our main courses but they were worth it... More

While Lagos is famous for cafes, this restaurant provides a fine dining experience as an alternative. It's a splurge that is worth the cost yet the prices are comparable to Boston where we're from -- just more expensive than the average meal in Lagos. In addition to the lovely ambiance and great service, we were treated to an amuse bouche... More
