Out last meal in Lagos and it was our best. The food was full of flavour. We had the lamb chops and the octopus and squid which were both incredibly tasty. Gorgeous attentive local staff.

Have been coming to Lagos for four years and this is definitely my favourite place to eat. Always have to come twice per visit! The staff are wonderful, the prawn appetisers are to die for and the steak is perfect. Cannot recommend highly enough.

This restaurant had been recommended to us, but we were very disappointed with it. The waiting on staff looked bored. My husband ordered calamari to start, which he said was okay, but certainly not worth the price ( they were about 10 euros). I had...More

Lagos is the jewel in the crown of the Algarve and this restaurant is a little gem. There are so many places to choose from to eat but ALCAIDE is top dollar. They aim to cook tasty dishes rather than just totally cover the plate...More
