We ended up here for dinner after some other choices in the area did not pan out. The grilled sea bass (whole fish) was good but a little too salty. The vegetables that came with were very overlooked. The pork tenderloin dish was very good. The grilled shrimp appetizer tasted like it had either been frozen or was over cooked.... More

We had two Tapas, salada Polvo and Bacalhau Grao. The octopus was very chewy. The cod was non-existent in the chick pea dish. While either dish cost only 4 and 3.50 euros respectively, they were not worth the amount paid. The sangria was good and reasonably priced. I would not eat here again.

In planning a day excursion with my wife to Lagos the Imperio Do Mar was one food outlet that had not been on the radar screen for lunch. However, upon stopping by to look at the menu in front of the restaurant it appeared to compare favourably with others in the immediate area. After an initial consultation we decided to... More

From reading the other reviews I'm not sure if we were unlucky. But the food here was awful. My fish was overcooked with absolutely no seasoning. The vegetables were disgusting, cooked to within an inch of their lives and tasted so foul. My boyfriend had a pizza which literally looked as if it had been taken out of a box... More

Visited here for lunch and ordered pizza and chips, you'll probably only need one portion of chips though. We ordered a salami pizza but the topping I felt was a bit stingy with 3 slices spread over the whole pizza, which is a good size by the way. The table next to us had beautifully presented salads and there was... More

Well it doesn't look the grandest from outside but this is a gem. The shellfish rice and mussels and mustard beef were all amazing. Good size portions and very tasty. Well worth a visit and area a bit quieter than the main drags. Also a short walk from the st antonio church

Had a dinner in this place yesterday, very nice service, still possible to eat outside with the hotspots placed. Wegas two pizzas and a sangria. Both very good quality. Can recommend on weekdays in the evening when everything else I the city is already closed.

Tapas are good, pizza was unexpectedly excellent - as good as what you get in Italy. Staff very friendly and overall good impression.

Really enjoyed this place, first night just drinks, the waiter had a laugh with us, so the next night we went back and had dinner. A well presented, clean and tidy restaurant with a good drinks menu and relatively low priced wine. We has the chicken breast with a sauce of your choice, the only gripe I would have was... More

I ordered piri-piri chicken and my wife ordered a vegetable pizza. My chicken was solid to the point that my knife could not cut it. It seemed to be that the chicken had been prepared in advance and then reheated in the microwave to be served. It was inedible. The accompanying fires were cooked well and seasoned but I had...
