We dined here 4 years ago and it was our restaurant of choice, we returned to Lagos again this year and it’s every bit as good. We had the most amazing evening, served by the very charming Nicolae. He’s knows his food and wine and is full of personality. The food here is different to the standard offering in Lagos, the menu is interesting, the wine list extensive, the ‘people watching’ from the outside tables excellent. I highly recommend the Goats cheese and Orange Tiramisu. We’re here for 2 weeks and I think it will be our restaurant of choice again this year. They don’t have a children’s menu but offered a burger and pasta option, both were excellent and our children were treated with such kindness. Thank you for a wonderful night,

This restaurant is in the middle of Restaurant Row in Lagos and its varied menu drew our attention. We had a late lunch there and the selection of both appetizers and entries we quite varied all with a nice subtle twist. The mushroom appetizer was delicious and the fish dishes very fresh. A bit more upscale than the places nearby which is reinforced by the vast wine selection and knowledgeable staff. While we just ordered wine by the glass we were provided with a nice selection by the waiter who steered us to a very nice selection. So good in fact, we all ended up having a second glass so we should have ordered a bottle.

Well, this meal will be hard to better on this holiday! Sunday evening, many restaurants closed, but on the recommedation of reviews here we went for dinner. And so glad we did!,
My seared tuna was just wonderful: chestnut stuffed chicken thighs so tasty; and the duck so tender. Three top drawer plates of food. They make some sweets in house and we chose two of them. A basil and lime sorbet had an extraordinary taste combo - first the basil front of mouth overwhelmed by the explosion of lime that followed: cleverly made! And the oranfe tiramasu was to die for!,
With a bottle of a lovely Alentajo red wine, and water, a bill of €77 for three of us felt like really good value for a really good dining experience in a stylish restaurant with good ambience and realy god service.
Highly recommended

A very interesting menu, which made us interested in the restaurant and we were disappointed. Great, friendly service from all of the waiters. The food was as good as you could expect in the highest level restaurant anywhere. When we asked for house wine, we were given a choice and also allowed to taste the wine, even though we were only ordering it by the glass. As we showed interest in the wine and the wine list, they offered to show us around their own cellar of over 5,000 bottle. Amazing.

Another lovely visit with outstanding service and lovely tasting food. I had the seared tuna and it was delicious. The wine again was very good from the vast wine selection. I would definitely recommend going to this restaurant if you are in the area.
