Eventually got to dine here last week and it was worth the wait. It is just behind Onda Norte for anyone that is familiar with that restaurant. The food is very tasty and nicely presented. You have the choice of dining al fresco if the weather allows it. The curry prawns were delicious and so was the pork fillet and the chicken dishes. Good selection of wines and well presented. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit and you get a liitle drink on the house with your bill which is a lovely touch as that rarely happens in Portugal. We will be back.

A lovely restaurant a bit further out from the main centre which we liked as it was very close to our hotel and lovely and quiet. We visited on the first and penultimate nights of our visit to Lagos.

My boyfriend had pork fillets in mustard sauce and sardines - both were excellent. I had the salmon both times as it was absolutely wonderful, some of the tastiest salmon I have ever had. The owner is very friendly and like most portuguese waiting staff attentive without being in your face constantly which makes a change from sycophantic and over-eager waiting staff back in Britain.

We have been visiting this restaurant for a number of years and have never been disappointed. Daniel makes all his guests feel welcome and his flambé sole is outstanding; the quality is excellent and also the best value for money in town. Well worth the effort to seek this restaurant out.

I had the piri piri chicken and it was outstanding! Really enjoyed it.
My partner had the fish soup and would not shut up about how amazing it was :)
No hidden costs...reasonably priced and friendly staff. Only reason they didn't make the 5star was the location. Out of the hustle and bustle and very quiet. Some may love that but we enjoy the nightlife and atmosphere. But overall an amazing place to eat and spend quality quiet time together.

A hidden treasure, you will have to ask where Daniels Paraiso is but it is worth the trouble.
Fantastic food cooked how you want it, very nice atmosphere and very reasonably priced.
You will notice the owner has no hair Flambé is his speciality
You will have to be quick with your camera though.
I would also recommend the house red and Cataplana.
We have dined in many restaurants in Lagos but this year we dined 12 out of 14 nights here.
