Firstly the description for this excellent eatery should be changed, as it is more a small restaurant as opposed to a snack bar. Visited there 3 times last week (7 of us) Over the 3 nights I had lamb chops, grilled rabbit and Steak, each dish was excellently cooked and delicious to the taste. The menu changes daily, and is very reasonably priced. The starters (or covers) consisted of fresh crusty bread, olives, goats cheese drizzled with honey and walnuts and a bowl of beef jerky. Both Vanessa and the chef Evu are very friendly and conscientious about their food. We will be back as soon as we can

The Dolphin Restaurante

Reviewed By DUN01170

No reservation is possible, so get there early as the place fills quickly. Tables are close together and the diners chat together easily which makes for a pleasant atmosphere in an otherwise rather unprepossessing premises.

This restaurant had a ton of Michelin recommendation stickers on its door. And for good reason.We were greeted upon arrival and escorted to a great corner table. The restaurant is tiny, and only seats 24 guests, of which all seats are full except for one table of two. Decor felt like I was sitting in someone’s home. Very comfortable. Two of ordered classic Portuguese dishes and another ordered the lamb. The classic dishes were delicious. The lamb was a little over cooked for my friends taste, but still tasty. So if you like your lamb rare, you bets let them know. Desserts were delicious and they ended our meal with complimentary port. Service was attentive and friendly. One of the best meals we had in Portugal.

OndaLuz

OndaLuz on the entrance to Praia da Luz, near when Rua da Varzea meets the Rua Direita, is a really nice traditional Portuguese Restaurante, know for its fish dishes, but it also has a wide variety of meat and seafood, you should also try the house especi

First visit to this restaurant in quite a while and was not disappointed. Really nice and well prepared food, very good atmosphere if just a little noisy. Staff helpful and service was professional. The monkfish Portuguese was really tasty and my guests were impressed by both the steak and kebab. Will be returning soon but booking is essential.

O Koala

Reviewed By Emer D

I went with a group of five, 12 year old and up, the food was excellent, the prawn starters where possible the nicest I’ve ever had, and the bread was straight from the oven.The mains outdid the starters, the rack of lamb and fish were superb, with veggies cooked to perfection, and the gin I had on arrival put some gin bars in major cities to shame.

O Cangalho

Reviewed By atw1946

We always like to visit this restaurant twice a year if possible and whilst the menu changes very little , the quality of the food , generous portions , attentive service , remain spot on . Sometimes its well supported with clients other times just a few tables but its always reassuring good if you like fresh prepared food .Do take the time to visit its worth the 20 minutes drive from the Lagos area , plenty of free car parking , full recommended for the experience ,in an unusual setting Ps Their is a zoo adjacent which again fully recommended for all ages groups , they give a discount coupon if you have had a meal ( Allow 90 /120 minutes to fully appreciate )

Enjoy locally inspired dishes throughout the day from the stunning clubhouse which sits above the course and provides breath taking 360-degree panoramic views from every angle.

We’d had a round of golf and called in for some refreshments. Pleasingly, besides the usual club house standards, there were other options available. I chose the burrito which was very tasty with beef melting in my mouth, although a bit more spice would have been good. The driver in our party said it was the best orange juice he’d had whilst we’d been awayThank you very much for visiting Gecko Restaurant at Espiche Golf, and for sharing your positive experience with us. Our Clubhouse and Gecko Restaurant have been designed to appeal to a broad variety of clients and we welcome golfers and visitors alike to come enjoy our indoor and outdoor spaces.We look forward to welcoming you back at Espiche Golf in the very near future.

Ate here quite a lot. They're pizzas are really good, and I'm not a pizza aficianado. The burgers are first rate also. I say interesting because a local artist has a thing about cats evident from some sculptures inside the restaurant, and a very interesting sculture on the roof of an adjoining building outside.Very reasonable prices. Worth a visit.

Generous portions of well cooked food. Always have about 4 specials on the blackboard each day.....my Corvina was excellent served with new potatoes, salad and veg. Others enjoyed their Pork Steak with fries and salad, and the Omelettes were good too. We will be back!

Tasca Jota

Tasca Jota – where the fantastic Portuguese cuisine meets a very peculiar twist. The result? Tapas, steaks, and much more for the delight of the senses, in a relaxed atmosphere, to enjoy with friends by a nice glass of wine.

We stayed in Lagos for one night and we found this restaurant through trip advisor! Excellent space with great food and service. Actually location is the best because it’s away from the usual tourist crowd! I surely will repeat again when I come back! ;) keep the good work!Thank you for your visit, I'm glad you liked it!See you soon!
