Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This restaraunt was closed and the premises chaned to a shop when we visited Lagos this month, September 2022. it was going down the tubes as regards staff and food quality three years ago, so i am not suprised that it has gone.

Lovely lunch on a lovely street. Was a busy place. Ordered kids pasta which my little one loved, the shrimp with butter sauce a little bit salty but I guess that’s how Portuguese food is? Also got fried calamari which was nice and tender and...a pizza thin crust fresh. The staff was nice and friendly spoke English. Good prices.More

Luckily we didn’t read the reviews for this restaurant before deciding to eat there. We can only speak from our experience of eating the monkfish, clam and shrimp cataplana - twice. We had to go back and have it again as it was out of...this world. At 28 euros for two people it was also great value.More

The food was very bad, things were over fried, and the tuna...my oh my the tuna... they killed it a second time when they cooked it that way. The salad with pineapple had exclusively te core of the pineapple, fibrose pineapple core... yummy

Had a nice dinner here tonight, do give up trying to get in , the waiters are so busy and rushed they don’t have time to seat you! The outdoor part have terrible uncomfortable chairs but inside is perfect. The usual Algarve menu and lovely...Portuguese wine , lovely meal of sea bass and turkey steak and very good prices. Worth a visit once you get the attention of a waiter.More

This restaurant is on one of the side streets just off the seafront in Lagos. The outside tables are great for people watching although the seats are quite uncomfortable. The food is good and well priced. the service is pleasant but a bit slow.

Drove with family from Albufeira to Lagos. Our first clue should have been when the waiter pulled the table out from under a woman who was reading the menu. We saw she, and her family at another cafe soon after Server, Ramos, was very rude...and short with us. Ordered some bevies, paid, he claimed there card machine was broken, and left. Would not recommend. Keep walking past Keep walking past. We had a lovely meal just around the corner at Orangery where we received great service and food.More

We were most impressed with our meal. We had the squid with chips and the grilled sardines with vegetables! Really outstanding food cooked in a traditional Portuguese way. If you want traditional you will get it here! The waiters are serious about serving their customers...efficiently and promptly (according to some reviews some people said that they are not friendly... so be friendly to your waiter and he will be friendly back!) The prices were also reasonable and the wine was great! You can either sit inside or outside. Lovely ambience!!More
