“Great service, lovely place”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We ate here twice during our week in Lagos and would highly recommend it.

Lagos is a lovely resort but lots of restaurants have a very odd conception of service. Get in, eat, get out is the process in many of the places in town. We found service in restaurants in the marina to be much better and at its best in Portofinos.

While the food is good Portofinos strength is its service. All the servers, English or Portuguese are friendly and helpful and there was a big smile and thanks from the kitchen when we left. Small touch, but made us feel welcome.

They take, and remember, bookings (unlike other places in town), which gives you no excuse not to go!

I never write reviews. However, I found that I had to with this restaurant. My husband and I ordered the eggplant Parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs. I couldn't eat more than three bites of my eggplant. It was by far the worst eggplant parm I have ever had. And the meatballs were awful. Never go here.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

6 of us ate here at 7pm on our last night in Lagos, the restaurant was half full with a good atmosphere and layout. The fish/chips and the salmon seafood pasta were very good along with the brownie and cherry bake well! Service was a little slow as we had to call a member of staff over to first order drinks then later for food after waiting for 10 minutes both times although the food did come in good time when we had ordered, would definitely visit again to try more of the dessert menu.

“Safe choice for good food; great location”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

This is one of the most popular restaurants in the Lagos marina area. So make sure you book a table well in advance. Lagos evenings can be very windy, so a table inside is recommended. The quality of the food is excellent. A safe choice.
