Made the mistake of choosing this restaurant whilst passing. Poor unattentive service, waiter not interested, ordered chicken in mushroom sauce came to table swimming in a watery curry sauce. Funeral music playing in background. So many good restaurants in Lagos walk right past this one!

One of the best meals we've had while in Portugal. We had the Clams Bulhao Pato and Mixed Seafood Cataplana. Definitely a must try. Order bread (we had the garlic bread) to dip into the sauce.

Warm small place on a busy restaurant way. Nice paella with crunchy rice. We ordered a side of chorizo that was on fire. Let it burn and get crispy. Great regional wine list too.

Never come back. Miserable stuff. Unmannerly and indecent. It was first time for me to see something like that.
