restaurant borsalino

this is the number one in lagos,

i hope i am wrong but the majority of reviewers are giving their first review.

what has made them come onto the trip advisor site for the first time?

wonder if it could be reviewed by someone with a few more posts

The mystery of TA's rating system.

Have to agree it is a little odd that they've had a recent flurry of so many first time reviewers.

Have noticed more and more places in UK are giving out little cards with the bill or a request on menus to rate them on TA. Didn't notice it in Lagos, though it is a possibility that it is happening.

Borsalino's has TA logo signs on its door, encouraging you to leave a review, and I daresay the waiter reminds you as he pockets his tip, too. It's slightly off the tourist beaten track, so they must be working hard at it.

I've never been to Borsalino, but my long- time resident friend tells me "it's OK", and he prefers Italia in the town centre (the one with the raised patio near the Obrigado square). I like the Italia too, and Vecchia Milano even more, even though they come several places lower in the ratings.

Remarkable that two one time posters obtained a "helpful" rating within 4 days of posting their review, and another has absolutely no personal information on their profile whatsoever.

And what do you think about Cascade Resort? Is it as good as the reviews state? Lots of first time reviewers...

that could be because it has just openned.

the prices are rather high , so it is not available to everyone.

One of the less flattering reviews was mine.

It probably will be lovely one day (if you like that kind of thing), but the day we went, it was largely devoid of customers, staff and atmosphere. Expensive, too!

It'll suit some people, might even have suited us if it were all-inclusive and in the Caribbean, but out of place in Lagos.

I also noticed that there has been a recent flurry of first time reviewers.

I have found some excellent restaurants in Lagos over the years, most of which have been recommendations by frequent posters on here (thanks). I also find it 'strange' that recently new restaurants have appeared with many reviews, most of which are new to me never been mentioned before.
