This restaurant is meant to have South African cuisine. Don’t expect that! The most disappointing bunny chow I have come across, it was inedible, basically a sour tomato paste, not even served as a bunny chow should. The Menu is deceiving as it accurately describes...More

Dinner, dessert and drinks were all delicious. They have good options for vegetarian and gluten free. The garden is really quaint and feels very intimate. We were very happy to have stumbled upon this restaurant during our stay in Lagos.

Quirky outdoor restaurant hence the name. Arrived and had to wait as didn’t have a table so had a few nice drinks at the bar. Great service and lovely food with a buzzing atmosphere Hip and trendy - worth a visit.

Avoid the cocktails, they’re terrible and watery. Cocktails are expensive. Stick to beer or basic drinks. Food looked good. We didn’t eat but it looked yummy. Very cool vibe and ambiance which we loved. Cool tunes. Service is slow.
