Nice restaurant, away from the busy centre. Nice dishes, wine was overpriced. Will we go again ? Maybe.

We were advised to have our dinner there by our hotel reception. We found the place almost empty, old fashioned and overpriced. The food was mediocre. Though the service was okay but without a smile. All in all not a place we would visit again.More

The food was superb! Well presented and most importantly, tasted great. The restaurant itself is a bit off the beaten the track but is only a 5-10 min walk from the marina. It is a bit pricier than other restaurants in Lagos but it’s reflected...More

This is an excellent restaurant. There is a decent choice of dishes, and the whole represents good value for the quality. The service is also attentive and efficient. However, the youngish waiter makes you feel like you are in the golf club incorrectly attired. We...More
