We only went there because the other restaurants we had planned to go were already closed for lunch. We ordered a clam plate (ameijoas Bolhão Pato), that was really nice and tasty, but it did not come with any sides, not even bread. We also had the sole fillets, that were nice and came with fries and vegetables, but the... More

Dreadful service if at all. After some forty minutes it transpired that our meal order had been lost, with no apologies. paid for our drinks and walked out.

Such a great place to eat at! Reasonable prices, delicious food and incredibly polite customer service with a great menu to choose from. Cosy seats outside. Simply a perfect place to get some proper food and drinks!

This has got to be one of the worst restaurants we've been to in Lagos. Waited over 30mins for our starter, food wasn't pleasant. Waiter was extremely rude when we complained about the food and said it was our fault. Never again

Evening service. Wine came in 5 minutes. We waited an hour for food and only after shouting across the restaurant for a waiter did we we get that. Food was OK. During that hour the full restaurant had NOBODY with food except sweets. Then found out the ATM was out of order - this means no credit card facilities. So... More

This place (Rua 25th April) looked OK & was busy. We took a table inside opposite a group of about 10 - otherwise quiet. We ordered chicken cordon blue and a seafood pizza with a bottle of Mateus. The wine arrived after 5 minutes, the food about 50 minutes later . My wife's chicken cordon blue was dark brown and... More

We dined al Fresca and enjoyed tuna steak plus a turkey steak; both meals were beautifully presented and good sized portions. The waiter was attentive and cheerful and the accompanying music was pleasant but not over intrusive. Very good value for money.

This restaurant seems to just want to get you in the door and ask for your drinks order. That part goes smoothly. Then you order the food. We simply wanted the standard grilled seabass dish, both of us. We waited and waited for at least 40 minutes and wondered how long it could possibly to take to cook fish! Normally... More

We ordered 1 starter and 2 mains courses. After some waiting we got our main courses and but no starter. We told one waiter but he said he couldn't help us and that we had to talk to the managing waiter. After telling him our starter came, we decided to cancel it, and instead asked for some bread( they don't... More
