Most delicious risotto I've ever had

This is definitely the best restaurant in entire Lagos! The risotto was very delicious and the appetizers too. All of the products were fresh. The waiters were helpfull and nice. I definitely recommend the risotto!

This restaurant is spending its effort on the looks. Tuna cuisson was not OK. Seasoning was disappointing. We had to serve ourselves to the wine.

We have visited Dos Artistas on a number of occasions (we have property in the town) and have considered it one of our favourite restaurants in Lagos. However the service tonight from the maitre de (Mario) defied belief. We had booked a table for dinner with friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the purchase of our friends new property.... More

Wife and I had a lunch and later in our holiday week had dinner at this restaurant. On both occasions we found the food and the service 1st class.. Lovely ambiance in the garden area. Waiting service impeccable. We found a real gem here.

We went in with high expectations after reading the reviews. I opted for the tasting menu for 72 Euro and my friend got the scallops and tuna. Everything was good and high quality, some of the dishes just had too much going on. The truffle pasta was very good as was the lobster. The other dishes were good, not amazing.... More

A superb restaurant,currently in Michelin guide but easily on a par with some Michelin starred establishments. A stylish and well planned inter provided both privacy and comfort and the actual patio is visually stunning. The food was exceptional and probably one of the best meals I've had .

This is a high end restaurant, star worthy. The food, service and interior is of a high quailty. We had an excellent dinner. I was a bit suprised, because I didn't expected to find such restaurant in Lagos. You get a bill that fits the occasion.

I was told that this restaurant was the best in Lagos - and I wouldn't doubt it after my visit. Creative dishes and attentive service. The ambience was what's best about it. We were sat outside in a romantic garden.

My wife and I had a quiet and very lovely evening at Artistas earlier this week. We've been coming to Lagos most summers for 15yrs, and no visit is complete without dinner at Artistas - surely the most elegant and refined place to dine in Lagos?!

We decided to splurge for our last night in Lagos, and booked at Restaurante dos Artistas. We sat in the back garden and were treated to a wonderful culinary experience. Our waiter was very welcoming and friendly. We loved the small touches such as the amuses-bouche and parting gift.
