Well presented seating area and good menu if a bit expensive.
Excellent couvert and first class ingredients (tuna and fillet steak) but everything was too salty, the gazpacho was not cold enough or marinaded properly, the fish soup was the worst we've ever tated in Portugal.
The wine list is exceptional and the bottle we chose outstanding.
A real curate's egg.

The meal was as wonderful as always, however the wine and couvert are all available in the local supermarket, so not too special. The tables were a bit close so was knocked a few times by waiters. It was very busy, but I would recommend booking and sitting upstairs on the patio

I do like this restaurant - a good bottle of red and a tender fillet steak is all that's required as they deliver bread, cheese, flaming chorizo, garlic carrots and pâté at the start of the meal. It's about €25 a head if you just do the steak and wine as we do but it is damm good. Plenty of room inside so don't be put off with everybody eating out on the street - infact it's cooler and calmer inside. Wonderful restaurant we'll be back.

In comparison to the majority of restaurants on the main street in Lagos, is restaurant is housed in a really pretty building. The art work on the walls and the lighting make the setting ambient and a change from other settings. The food was good but no better than most other restaurants in Lagos. I did find this restaurant a little more expensive so I think you paid for the setting and location I.e. right in the centre of the main street. The staff were friendy and attentive throughout our visit.

We have visited many retaurants in the Algarve and when compared we were not completely flabargasted. Service is efficient, but seems very interested in serving people as fast as possible (in order to talk new clients in) than in doing a good job. The quality of the food is in line with the quality of the service. It's not bad, it's not good, it's just your average tourist trap.
