Good choice on an interesting menu, one step above the average as you might expect from a Michelin recognised restaurant, but it's still "Pub Grub" Nicely presented, very well cooked food, attentive friendly staff and extremely busy. Comfortable surroundings, proper linen table clothes and modestly priced.

Located around the center of Lagos, this restaurant offers a wide variety of fresh fish. We settled on the daily catch and ordered fried prawns as an appetizer. The whole meal was great. It came with a side salad and some potatoes. They offered us bread and butter too. My friend had an allergy to dairy so we requested the... More

Go for the monkfish and king prawn skewers (served on vertically mounted skewers!) or the wild boat in a pot. Succulent and full of flavour. Quality of food is superb and the waiters/ waitresses clearly take a huge amount of pride in their work. The Chefs seem to locate only the freshest of ingredients and we've now been 5 times,...

When we come to Lagos we eat here most nights, the food is excellent and we are always made welcome by Carlos and his staff. We have been coming for years and the food has always been to a high standard. We have never had a meal to complain about. The restaurant is very clean with lovely white and blue... More

We had wandered around the town during the day looking for somewhere to eat in the evening and having returned to the apartment none the wiser, asked for a recommendation. Our host had no hesitation in recommending Cantinho Algarvio. We took a while to find it but not before we had passed several completely empty establishments. On arrival it was... More

This restaurant has the atmosphere of a canteen. It is brightly lit and basic, but the food is really stunning. I had lamb with garlic and it was delicious. My husband had the seabass and loved it. The restaurant was hopping despite it being mid week and the service was excellent. Make sure to go if you are in the... More

Our party of four had booked a table for dinner at 7.00 p.m. When we arrived only a couple of tables were occupied. Half an hour later the restaurant was almost full. For starters I shared fried strips of squid with my wife. I ordered grilled sole for mains and my wife had grilled sea bass. They were cooked to... More

Great welcome and service. Perfectly cooked fish, best we have had in Lagos. Highly recommended. Had just reopened after the winter break and people were flocking in.
