Mediocre food , cataplana with mussels was ok, but the shrimp were overcooked! The sauce was ok but without flavour. Good price, clean, and ok wine. Very friendly staff and good location.

Went back here as had good food & service in the past. New owners now what we did not realise & now an Italian. Food was good, nothing out the ordinary & were surprised no garlic bread. Very good service very nice friendly waitress.

Stopped here for dinner on our last night in Lagos. The salad was tasty. My seafood pasta was pretty good, my friend got the pizza. The crust was bland and the pizza sauce strangely sweet. Couldn't give 4 stars for an Italian place that served meh pizza. Our waitress was attentive and sweet.

I used to come here years ago and had read it had changed ownership this year. Well, for my money everything was great - I had pasta both times and it was perfectly cooked and well portioned. The house wine is perfectly drinkable. All in all a great job done and such a bubbly efficient server who looked after us... More

It was our fault entirely as we shouldn't have gone back to this restaurant purely for nostalgias sake and curiosity. Nothing can ever replicate the amazing food that was served at the old Galeao and the new team are very quick to explain the change of ownership. Having said that, the food we were served was very ordinary and definitely... More

Took a punt on this restaurant as slightly outside the centre. Under new management steak for the wife was awesome. Pizza for my daughter was great. Octopus also good. Recommend the monte Velho red wine. Only feedback was the wifi password took ages to arrive !! Enjoy

While traveling to Lagos we had a difficult time to find a restaurant capable to accept 11 people; finally we run into this restaurant that seemed kind of nice. A poster outside reported a recent change of management (now Italian), hence we decided to run the risk.. I would say the bet was paid back, even though we had better... More
