Enjoyed a dinner here recently with very friendly waiters. I tried the fish but next time will be having the steak on recommendation and will have to revert.

We went to Villa Medici for a birthday dinner and were very pleased. First, to get the normal Lagos caveat out of the way: Medici is a pricey place at about $100/person with appetizer, wine, entree, and dessert. But given the quality of food and service, that's not bad at all for Lagos. The waiters were well-trained and very amicable.... More

Parking sucks, which is a shame, but the food here is pretty good. Caipirinhas also great here though you might need to tell the bartender not to change out the rum type or sugar on a repeat order.

Villa Medici is an oasis in lagos where places spark for a few short months then plunge back into the darkness. Pat and Mouin have kept the standards up over many years - originally at La Scala and others but for a good - wow how many years? 12 at least - have kept medici at the top. Pat runs... More

Great atmosphere and good food. The waiters try but don't ask them too many questions. Very expensive as well. Anywhere outside of Nigeria it wouldn't be worth the money. With a corporate credit card in Lagos, it's a staple.

It's a cosy little place in Victoria Island. With some nice food. I would say the portions are small, so it's not a place to go if you are hungry. But the food tastes good ;-)

Have been here a few times, always invited by business contacts. It would not be the first place to go to myself for dinner in Lagos (I prefer more 'basic' restaurants) but it is certainly an excellent place to invite others. Service was very good all times, both from managers and other staff. The food is just very good. you... More
