Tried Fernandos for the first time on a Saturday evening, at the end of a quick three-day break to see acquaintances in Lagos. Situated on the main coast street it benefits from the busy atmosphere, although there was a definite end of season feel to the place on the last day of October. Food and service both more than acceptable... More

Been coming to Lagos for many years & always visit this restaurant. Always fantastic. Best fillet steaks I've had. Only a small family run restaurant but real quality. If you want to visit you must book. You cannot walk in off street because it is always full!!"

The granny who works front of house was a delight . Charming, efficient and helpful with a smile on her face. I spoke to other visitors and they were here because of her. I was solo but I was welcomed to sit with another solo and I gladly took the offer. I had sardines but I would recommend the lamb.... More

Very friendly atmosphere indeed. The staff were helpful and very welcoming and service was good. Based on the fact we had to book in advance and the high recommendation from others we were probably a little disappointed with the food. I was hoping for the fresh local sole but unfortunately it was off the menu. My wife ordered a medium... More

We have eaten here many times over the past 7 years and always had enjoyable tasty steaks - this has been our favourite steak restaurant. Tonight our meal was average - very tender steaks but not much flavour, and even the vegetables and potato dauphinoise did not have much taste. Even though the prices have increased quite a bit since... More

You cannot just turn up and expect a table. Book in advance. Small but excellent restaurant. Excellent English speaking staff. Great value for money and delicious dos we've waited a long time to eat here and are now wondering why we left it so long. Fernados is a must whe. You visit Lagos

Recommended this hotel by someone at hotel we were staying at and would definitely recommend this restaurant. All food ordered was fantastic. You do need to book as it is so busy and not too big. Steaks to die for and everything so fresh.
