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

The owner was very friendly, the minute we walked in he greeted us like an old friend, although it was our first time in the bar. They provided meals as well which was always very busy. Was able to watch the football and the rugby league final which he put on specially for us. That bar made our holiday, will... More

Visited O' Artista a few times on previous visits to Lagos and it's always been ok for a drink. So we thought we would pop in this time as they were advertising a blues/jaz night. I had a glass of wine and then decided to have a glass of port before leaving. I was given a glass of 'port' but... More

I made the mistake of passing through on my way to my hotel to check the place out. The owner is a stout, crust, old-Brit with an impressively firm grip. I know this because he thought it appropriate to grab the skin on the front of my neck and tell me to "get the fu** out back the way I... More
