Great value for money & atmosphere

We dined here late on a Saturday evening, didn't get seated til around 11pm. The restaurant was still really busy & we had to wait for a table out on the street. It was definitely the restaurant with the most vibrant atmosphere along the strip. The service was good & the meals were nice & very... read more

Visited this place in July 2012. We has a few beers, grilled sardines and a banana split. Price was very good and the food was even better. We sat outside which was nice also. It was hard this restaurant to stand out as there are a long run of places to eat in this area but it was fine and... More

I would say my 'very good' rating is more based on ambiance and service rather than taste of food. Dining extends from inside to a covered seated area outside the restaurant along the coble stoned busy path of the old town. There are different restaurants all along that same pathway giving you lots of choices. The service was great. We... More

We visit this restaurant several times during our two weeks in Lagos every year. Good menu choice, happy to put up with my daughter being a picky eater and always willing to help with menu and wine choices. Reasonable prices and staff are second to none. Great atmosphere as it is in the Rue 25 April, central Lagos and very... More

I was very surprised to see the decent rating for this restaurant on Tripadvisor. I recently ate here with my wife and son. Piri Piri chicken contained no trace of Piri Piri. It was also extremely dry and accompanied by chips soaked in fat. Service was good, but did not make up for the substandard food. There are much better... More

We happened by this looking for a simple place and found the food nice. A good child's menu. Very reasonable prices. Pizza was great. Pasta nice too. A huge banana split which was great. Very reasonable prices. Honestly I don't write a lot of reviews but in this case I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Restaurante Caravela is located on one of the main streets in the old section of Lagos which is lined with shops and restaurants. It’s worth keeping an eye out for when wandering through these lovely streets in the old town. The street it is on is Rua de Abril, and it is opposite a shop called Classic Sport. They have... More
