Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food was unreal! The owners were so kind and welcoming. Would definitely recommend the cataplana for anyone wanting delicious portugese cuisine. Our chocolate mousse dessert and port wine was amazing as well!

Try the Bochechas, it’s delicious. The service is friendly and welcoming. Some great wine to tie it all together. Quiet place to sit in the sun and watch people Stroll by

We came for dinner hoping to find beautiful mood music, delicious food, and great service. We found all three here. We split the Cataplana and an order of mixed vegetables. The dishes were SUPERB IN EVERY WAY; they were perfectly balanced and served at the...proper temperature. Our server could not have been kinder or more attentive. The wine she suggested was perfect for our dish. Our dinner here was sensational and we strongly recommend that you have your next dinner here. You’ll love it. 👨‍🍳More

We has a mixed experience 2 of the dishes were wonderful the seabass was exceptional but the steak dishes were too chewy and my 2 teenagers were unable to eat it, the pear in wine was too sweet yet the chocolate mousse was lovely. We...were the only ones in the resturant so the service was good. it was on the expensive side for what we ordered.More

Arrived for my wife's birthday meal and were warmly welcomed to this lovely restaurant. Our waitress Marzena could not have been more helpful, fantastic menu, and highly recommend the braised pork cheeks, best I've ever had! One of the best places in Lagos, thanks!

We had a lovely meal here for Valentine’s and really appreciated the effort made. There were balloons & rose petals on the table and I was given a single red rose too. We had a complimentary heart shaped dessert too. Fabulous touches and much appreciated.

Dinner with 4 of us. This restaurant has been my favourite for some years, but last dineer experience was not good. Service was great, but when the Filet Mignon came 2x, we asked for medium, it was not just well done but overcooked. It resulted...in tough meat. The waitress saw it and asked to bring it back to kitchen, but I did not want my friends to wait, so I just chewed on it to feed myself. I saw lamb from another table going back to the kitchen as well. What happened this evening in the kitchen?More

Sharing a meal of monkfish and prawn cataplana could not have been a finer way to celebrate a special birthday. There is no finer cataplana in Lagos. We’ve been enjoying our meals here for three years and highly recommend. Experience the outstanding flavours from the...finest selected local ingredients with an excellent wine selection. Service is personal and top notch. There is always room for the lime mouse for dessert. Truly a dining experience you will remember.More
