Lovely spot for a drink, watch the matches, have a snack. Didn't eat in the Restaurant side but always seemed very busy there - I would say booking advisable - very friendly staff

We came upon this bar by accident as it was near our hotel the Tivoli Lagos. It had live music - two players who played music of the 70s. Great nostalgia for all who remember Irving throught it with an appropriately aged audience who danced as they remembered their youth. A good night and well recommended

Last used this place 4 years ago and it is much the same as it was then, I have to say I only had drinks in here. There seems to be plenty of people in the front end of the bar area but not so many having food on the nights we went in. The entertainment is well worth going... More

Quirky, but great food, burgers are just as good as some in the town at twice the price. The owner Luis is really friendly and has brilliant local knowledge. Just at the bottom of the drive from the Tivoli hotel.
