Lively and welcoming

During our recent stay in Lagos, we visited O Artista every evening for a nightcap. The staff were very welcoming. They had karaoke and live singers each night. We didn't eat out here but it was busy some evenings. Service was quick and efficient and free wifi was great. Definitely worth a visit.

We went here by accident but enjoyed the food so much came back the last night. Entertainment every night. Place full of English people living abroad each night and songs tended to be from 50s,60s. 70s. Kareoke on one night too if that's your thing. Great wifi and very friendly staff.

We probably would of never went here, but we were staying at hotel Tivoli just over the road, so very handy. Owner was very friendly, food was nice, although nothing out of the ordinary, and although it was not busy we did have a long wait. Did not see any of the entertainment, but sounds good esp to have on... More

We stayed at the hotel across the street and after dinner we popped in for a nightcap and ended up staying for several hours listening to the live 2-person duo who were excellent. Some of us got up to dance as well so it was a very festive place. If we had stayed another night, we probably would have returned... More

Out of season, the restaurant wasn't very busy, but despite the season still puts on live music. On this occasion it was a talented and entertaining saxophonist (four saxophones!) who interacted well with the clientelle generally. Our food was plentiful and service was pleasant with the owner talking to the clients and joining the fun with the saxophonist. Seems to... More

Menu is a little limited but from what is on offer it is good value. There is live music at O Arista most nights and it is very lively. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they have free WiFi for customers.

This little bar is good for drinks and food and there is usually some live entertainment on offer. We used to go for pre-dinner drinks and even watched live Rugby there one afternoon. Great place.

Been going here for the last four years when on our holidays. The food is above average compared to a lot of the usual tourist traps along the front, grilled sword fish is a personal favourite! Good selection of cold and fizzy beer and a couple of ales thrown into the bargain. Food and beer are average price for the... More
