We visited mid week after reading trip advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The white tomato soup was great and beef starter was also really good. Mains were delicious although as a veggie the only low point of the evening was the risotto which lacked any flavour. We sat in the courtyard which was beautiful but a bit chilly in our corner and very cramped for the 5 of us. Service was professional and attentive. All in all a great foodie night.

Service was good, Ambience was nice, but the food was terrible. They served me off scallops and the mains were average. Go to the tavern if you want a great meal in Lagos.

Hello, thank you for your comment, it is important for us to know what our customer think .
I notice that is your first comment/ feedback
Your last visit was on Saturday, and we remember.
You asked as a starter the scallops . This starter consists of three scallops, you have eated 2 and half of the third scallop, then you complained to the waiter that the scallops were off. The waiter took the dish to the kitchen and has been tested by our head chef, his assistant and the manager.
The scallops were not off, at the same night, we sold several times scallops from the same lot and scallops were all good.
Writing that the food was off is something very serious.
I hope you have a conscience that this type of comment is unfair and serious.
best regards

If you are visiting Lagos and you a looking for a real fine dining, then this is the place to go for sure. They have different options for the degustation menu and one of them include lobster with truffles. This is an amazing course that is worth trying! We paid about 170EUR for 2 degustation 4-course menus including a bottle of good wine, 2 aperitifs and 2 glasses of porto. This place provides a good value for the money they ask.

We had very pleasant day, in the old town, of Lagos. We stumbled upon the restaurant by accident, as you do, when strolling. Wow! It's fantastic. We had the set lunch, which also consisted of the usual couvert, usual bread and spreads, but really tasty, with what could only be described as a amuse bouche, of tuna tartare! Probably a little big for that, but very tasty! The main meal was really nice, so much so that I had a dessert, which was gorgeous! Worth a visit, and well worth the 42 euros for both of us, with drinks! Enjoy!!!!

Having read a few of the bad reviews we were apprehensive about going to try this Restuarant out Having heard good reviews from friends we thought we would try it out
It's a very nicely laid out restaurant and the outside courtyard is lovely. The waiters were polite friendly and attentive as they needed to be.
The food was excellent every mouthful delicious
Scallops for starter and delicious pork for main. I can't remember what my husband had but he loved it. Nice Belinis to start and bottle of house rose was great. We didn't have dessert as too full but they served a palate cleanser of raspberry sorbet which was very tasty
Will we go back definitely. it's not a restuarant I could eat at weekly but we are at the end of about 4 weeks holiday where we' have eaten outmost evenings so Restuarant food not that appealing any more
I can definitely recommend and i do think its a fine dining experience that is right up there with some top London Restuarant's and that's a huge compliment and also not easy to find in Lagos.
