Not our first visit to A Forja, often referred to as the "Blue Door" you will see why when you visit. Tables are set quite closely together so be prepared to be sociable. Fish is what A Forja is renowned for, always beautifully cooked, presented in the traditional Portuguese manner with boiled potatoes and vegetables. The range of fish available... More

I loved this place as it is a simple local restaurant packed with people from the area! The food was simple but very tasty, serving a selection of meat and some seafood. I went with the specials of the day and found them great value for money! Also cheap beers too!

Have been coming here for years (not just on Sundays!) Always good portions and excellently cooked. Necessary to book most times even in November. The restaurant is very popular... More

Visited again a number of times in October and it is still as good as ever. Fish is first class and cooked to perfection. The fact that it is full of locals speaks volumes for the price and quality.

We visited this restaurant last week, while on holiday in Lagos, it was excellent. Very reasonably priced and a fantastic selection on the menu. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant was buzzing with locals which is a great sign. We tried to go back on Saturday night but unfortunately they were closed. AForga is a must visit... More

The fish was very well seasoned, fresh and perfectly grilled. The only small drawback was that the waiters which were all in a hurry. However, we have to say that the restaurant was completely full. Hence, the stress feeling.
