Chance discovery last year but so good we went back this year.... Twice!
Staff are very friendly. Good food and ok prices for middle of Lagos - certainly good value.
The meat kebabs are great and a nice piece of theatre.
Avocado and prawn starter is excellent as is the garlic bread, bit different to the UK

Thank choyp16

A chance conversation in Luz led to a recommendation to go to the Cantinho Algarvio and we are so glad we did. The service was top class - menu and drinks came straight away and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had the special menu - 3 courses and bread and butter for €19.95 each. There were no half measures - the portions were generous and everything really tasty. I had “pork in the pot” and the pork was top quality and very tender. Good job that we booked days before - the restaurant was packed. Think this is going to become a favourite!

Lovely restaurant, authentic Portuguese food, great atmosphere. Amazing choices on the menu. Had the squid starter, grilled swordfish, & crepes suzette to finish. Divine!

We have been visiting this Restaurant on a regular basis since we moved to Lagos from
Canada four years ago.The ambience,food,and wine have always been absolutely superb,Carlos and his team always make you feel welcome with a warmth that is hard to put into words, his special event evenings are always a experience to remember,the must important thing to remember is due to their reputation you should always make a reservation to avoid disappointment, as their reputation among local ex-pats of all nationalities is well known.Once again apologies Carlos i should have written this a long time again.
