One of my first weekend lunches in Lagos but since then have not returned for the food. Uninspiring. I still come here regularly for a coffee break (closest place to my office...). Espresso is sometimes good, sometimes bad (burned or very weak). Staff does not care and is slow. Would not recommend.
