We visited this place as a last minute decision due to being late into Lagos and as any regular visitors will tell you, getting a table after 7 is near impossible. Anyway it was a very poor decision. We were seated surprisingly within 20 minutes...More

Ate here and initially it looked OK the food was rubbish and the service not much better, wouldn't recommend the place at all.

Have eaten here on numerous occasions... You won't go hungry... Yes the meals could improve slightly but that said.. Quality is judged by what's left and let me say all plates empty. Is there better? Yes.. But this one is well worth a visit. Very...More

Whenever we go to Portugal we head for Lagos at some stage and always eat here. Great selection of Portuguese food at really good prices. Superb, I would eat here every night if we stayed in Lagos.

Went there with my wife. I had seabass which was fine. My wife had "steak" with "pepper sauce". It was practically inedible. They took it back and didn't charge, but it was small comfort. Will never go back.

We went here early for dinner and everything went well. The employee that took our order explained everything about the meals and we had a great Fish's Cataplana. We enjoyed the meal to the very end.

Grilled cod fish was fresh and generous portion of tasty peri peri chicken. Very busy and seems popular with families. Service was decent and we went on a Saturday night when it was packed and the wait staff kept up.

Simply don't bother. The waitress serving us was the rudest I've experienced. We viewed the menu and decided against the food after seeing someone receive their lettuce and tomato starter. We'd already ordered drinks, but we're told to drink them and leave straight away.
