Delicious and classy

We had the 6 course menu and it did not disappoint. The trio of soups were one of our highlights with the lobster bisque as the standout. We were a bit skeptical of the sorbet given they added brut on top, but it went extremely well. The angus was generous in size and the meat was very tender. The... read more

I was looking forward to my dining experience at restaurant artistas after a tiring, blustery morning at Maia Prais beach. Of course I was not disappointed. The initial welcome we were given was warm and we were made to feel welcome from the outset. We chose the Menu Artistas which was delicious throughout. There was a particular highlight for me...

What a great place, having your meal in the inner garden it's probably the best choice. The service and the food are very good, however they should try to have a 'no children allowed' policy. Such a lovely place and atmosphere will be ruined with toddlers running and screaming around, maybe it was just bad luck for us.

There are a lot of nice restaurants in Lagos and we found Artistas to be the best..We were there twice. The food and service were excellent. It truly deserves a 5 star rating and it is not expensive at all!! Our server Adeel was very friendly and personable which made the experience even nicer!! Thank you Adeel!! Florence and Tom

On our previous two visits to Lagos we visited Artistas for dinner but this time we popped in for the prix fix lunch. The service and the quality of food was still fantastic as was the house red! Highly recommend for a special occasion or a casual lunch in the garden.

This is probably one of the most "classiest" restaurants in Lagos. Very friendly staff, a good menu, and a pleasant setting. The food was well prepared with interesting flavours. Unfortunately our yellow fin tuna was slightly overcooked. The atmosphere is sophisticated without being stuffy, perhaps a little expensive. Would we recommend this restaurant? Definitely yes.

5 star on service and food, this restaurant is a experience not to be missed, very expensive but worth the money, never over busy on the times we have visited which is a few now.

You have a couple of choices, you can drive to Gale and go to Vila Joya or you can go to Artistas. How can you go wrong with a spring roll of smoked quail with mushroom truffle salad and bacon ice cream? This place is everything an upmarket experience should be.

Went to artistas last night for my 50th birthday and it was superb, it's classy, the very best food, quality of service easily equal with top London resturants , it's pricey, but well within the budget of most people, they have a fine selection of wines , overall I would absolutely recommend this resturant
