What a find! I cannot recommend this place highly enough! We are regular visitors to Lagos and have our favourite restaurants which we return to every trip but usually try to find somewhere new. We tried to eat here on a Tuesday night in mid September but it was fully booked. This is not unusual so best to plan ahead. We booked an outside table for the following evening. The building is fantastic, with lots of character. The location is nice as it is away from the busier streets in town. The staff are first class - friendly, helpful and want to get things right. The food was brilliant! So much so that we returned the next night (our last night in Lagos). Over the two nights we had garlic prawns and chicken liver pate starters, a mixed grill for two, a fish dish and piri piri chicken. The food was well cooked and delicious. No doubt the best food we had on this holiday. Thanks to everyone for two great evenings. We really wish you all well - you deserve it!

Really nice small restaurant, with cheerful staff, and delicious, reasonably priced food. It's not fancy, just very nice. We got lucky and had a cancellation, but you really do need to book as it's very small and popular. We sat outside in the alleyway, where you kind of overlook the sea via a car park, but the inside tables looked very atmospheric, especially the one under the archway. If it hadn't been our last night, we would have gone back! We took our toddler (she was supposed to be asleep in her pushchair, but that was wishful thinking), and the staff were very accommodating.

Arribale deserves it's place near the top of the recommendations for Lagos. It has a lovely rustic charm and a fantastic open charcoal grill on which most of the main courses are cooked. We went twice and sampled most of the meat mains, all were excellent, in particular the steak (although the definition of 'rare' did vary on each occasion) and the meatballs. The owners and the chef were lovely and chatty and couldn't have done more for us. Arribale is very small and we saw lots of people who arrived without a reservation turned away, so make sure you book for at least one visit!

I've been to Lagos a number of times but had never come across this restaurant. Sought it out this time round as it had been so highly rated on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint. Tiny little restaurant with real charm indoors but as it was a nice evening we had requested an outdoor table. The food was extremely tasty, we shared the tapas for 2 to start, the prawns were delicious. For main, I had the pork and two others in our group shared the mixed grill. The food was extremely tasty and cooked on the grill in front of you. The couple I was with have already made a reservation to bring guests this week!
