This upmarket restaurant has a stylish contemporary decor. The menu isn’t very long but it’s extremely innovative compared to other restaurants in this area which all offer the ”Algarve standard menu”. The wine list is longer than we have seen anywhere in the Algarve. Everybody should find his/her favourite wine from the list. For starters I shared Duo of Mushrooms... More

Stopped by this restaurant while walking around our first night in Lagos. The cute tables outside on the pedestrian street caught our eye as something different compared to the other restaurants trying to so desperately grab your attention. The waiter was extremely kind and helpful in accommodating a food allergy. The food was magnificent, and probably our best meal over... More

We had a very pleasant impromptu al fresco evening meal, unusual menu albeit with somewhat pretentiously named dishes, but nothing exceptional. Then we got the bill and wanted to pay with credit card. Three time it did not work. I assured the waiter that the PIN was correct when he suggested it was wrong and I asked was there another...

We first went here in 2014 and thought the food was great. Two years later and if anything, it is getting better. We got a taxi from Alvor just to come to this restaurant and were not disappointed. The waiter recommended a wine that was really nice and not expensive. I would definitely come here again.

A gem of a restaurant in the centre of Lagos. Tapas menu is truly innovative and appears to be regularly updated. Staff are excellent and the quality outstanding. Highly recommended.

We had reservations for three and were immediately helped by a wonderful waiter who had great suggestions for wine and choice of appetizer and entree. Everything was beautifully done and delicious! The desserts were especially worth the visit!

I wanted to book somewhere special for my husbands birthday whilst we were in the area on our honeymoon. After researching on trip advisor the food here looked amazing so I booked for lunch. My husband is a chef so I always feel the pressure when finding somewhere good to eat ;) We were not disappointed the food was absolutely... More
