We had an excellent lunch here last week . Three courses plus couvert , large bottle of water, a glass of wine for me and a large beer for my husband for 12.50 euros each . It was quite busy and at those prices it is very good value. There is plenty of choice on the menu so should be something for everyone

We had a very poor experience there last night. Two disinterested waiters did their best to destroy a very average meal. Service was very slow even though there were only 14 diners. No attempt made to pour the wine or to ask us how our meal was. A second bottle of water never arrived and when it finally did after much prompting we were told it wasn't chilled. A request for ice to cool it down eventually resulted in 4 lumps in a bucket. A request for more ice eventually resulted in sufficient. When trying to pay the bill we were told their card reader wasn't working and we would have to go to an ATM to get cash. No apologies of any kind offered.

That makes sense. We had a similar experience to Barry's last week. Marco was not there and I did get the impression that Lagoa is the priority. A great shame as we'd enjoyed this place before. I understand they're aiming upmarket in Lagoa, which probably makes business sense given the couple of very well regarded places there already, and the customers clearly prepared to make the effort to get there.

Wandering around Lagoa yesterday, we re-discovered Tasquina, back where it started from. Marco and wife very busy there....we didn't eat, but the lunch menu of 9.5€ looked good...it's open in the evening, more expensive...waiting for first reports, or we'll try it out anyway!
Granny and baby back in residence!
Lot's eating there, inside and out.

btw, it's all very nice outside Chrissy's now that the roadworks have finally finished...the rather non-descript cafe just up from there, next to the florist, has taken on a new lease of life with outside tables....large tasty tosta-mixtas for 2€.

New topic started, a Tasquina Lagoa!
