Good location, otherwise reasonable but nothing to cheer

I visited the cafe several times as part of visit of the Mall but wouldn't go there just for the café only. Food is reasonable, nothing special, but I also had to send back food once. The place is fairly popular and then owners/managers apparently become complacent. Often times tables and seats... read more

Had a meal of white rice and fish in basil sauce. The sauce was divine! The waitress kept forgetting my friend's drink order and the most annoying part was that the POS didn't work. Good thing there is an ATM located close by.

A quaint place offering a boutique of continental offerings at a decent price. It's location at the entry of one of the shopping hubs in lagos makes it regularly frequented. The food is nice, with ample options for brunch, light snacks or main courses. Add this to both open and enclosed seating, with good service and a very warm sporting... More

The customer service was superb. They went the extra mile for my pregnant wife. I haven't been this pleased with a restaurant in a long long time... since Tel Aviv early last year

Aesthetically my husband and I were pleased with the decor for our chosen lunch spot. Food looked appealing, but extremely bland. There was more wait staff available than necessary for the number of patrons. Staff mostly stood around the bar chatting with one another rather than tending to customers. I motioned over the manager on two occassions for service. I... More

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.

The cafe at the Palms shopping centre has recently moved to a more attractive position with a terrace (admittedly overlooking the car park, but pleasant enough). Coffee is excellent and food (cooked breakfasts, club sandwiches, burgers) decent. I often while away a few hours here at weekends.

They have got great food but too many girls looking to get picked up hanging around the restaurant. The waitresses in my opinion fall into the same category...pls note: (This is MY OPINION and I am entitled to it)
