We found this restaurant by accident as Lagos on a rainy day in January is not a busy place and several restaurants were not open. Not knowing the area, we decided near the market was our best bet and Gilberto's had a certain buz about it. We were very warmly welcomed and took the dish of the day menu which had several choices. The services was excellent despite the fact that all the tables were full. Our choice of pork and clams and Lamb casserole were great and very Portuguese with Portuguese portions. All and all this little restaurant made our trip to Lagos lovely as the following day thunder and lightning kept us indoors and our return visit for excellent fried seabass and a good bottle of red cheered a very dreary day.

Good choice of local dishes, situated 5 mins from the bus station. The pork with clams was absolutely delicious! Good service - just 15€ for food including drinks and service

We ate here a few times simply because the food and friendly staff made it such a pleasure. It's not a posh place but it has a simple charm and sitting outside by the road, watching folk go by, with a plate of wonderful octopus plus Gilberto's own labelled wine was an absolute pleasure.
we will be back.

Basic place with personal service and a relatively limited menu of standard Portuguese dishes that you can't count on other places to serve. Had pork and clams for the first time here. Gilberto had very authentic feel about it. I think it offered better value than most of its neighbours.

We ordered the roast octopus and the salmon. Both meals were amazing and superbly cooked. The octopus was probably one of the best dishes I've had on this trip (and probably the best octopus I've tried). The dishes were accompanied by delicious potatoes and vegetables. You were charged for what you ordered, and the meals were so reasonably priced. It was great value for money (one of our cheapest meals there) and was delicious.There was a huge range of food to choose from including meat (although we didn't try any) and seafood. Overall would highly recommend to everyone, especially seafood lovers.
