The restaurant is beautiful with art and a nice garden area. Service was good but not outstanding. I had very high expectations with the reviews for this restaurant and was slightly disappointed. Food was good with limited selection and small portions. Prices were good for US standards but high for Lagos. Nice place for a romantic dinner or special occasion,... More

A restaurant to remember. Fantastic garden and very good food. The service was also very nice. Be aware of a very expensive coverr charge (also relativelt compared to food prices). We had a 4 course menu, and was in no rush, but the waiting time for the main dish was just too long (over 2 hours after ordering)

Clearly one of the best restaurants in Lagos. Been eating here more that 10 times and never been disappointed, the opposite. The staff and generous, friendly and makes you feel really welcomed. The food is good, sometimes great and always well-prepared. Open the entire year.

Eight of us spent a fabulous evening at one of Artistas wine pairing events. The food was superb and the service terrific as always. Should have a Michelin star. Always consistently good.

Set in superb surroundings with fine attention to detail. It's pricey but its well worth treating the wifey just once a year!

We enjoyed dining at this restaurant on our first night in Lagos and it did not disappoint. What amazing service and food. We enjoyed a full-bodied red wine from the Douro Valley that was very affordable (16 euro). The chef sent out a very delicious chilled melon soup that was a perfect way to start the meal. For appetizer, we... More

We've been visiting Lagos once or twice each year (May/late Sept) for the last 4/5 years and always make a beeline for this place at least a couple of times during the stay... food is exceptional and the waiters most helpful in food choice and complimentary wines... definitely check this place out

We both had the 3 course tasting menu which we both enjoyed. I thought the deconstructed dessert was a bit disappointing however. The atmosphere and service were both very nice.
