Private Dinner

Great dining experience with a good selection of wines and gourmet cuisine. Loved every minute of it and the garden bar was not half bad. Solve the car parking issues and the experience would be even better.

I went for a business lunch and had a good meal. The spicy prawn starter was good as was the fish that followed. My colleague had the beef carpaccio and the chicken. Everything looked very good and service was very professional. A good place for a discrete lunch or dinner as the tables are well spaced out. I believe there... More

The food is excellent and so unique for Lagos. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The mustard shrimps are superb, but then again everything I have tried has not disappointed me. I have been a few times for lunch.

Came here in the company of my colleagues, and I'd say this, the places was awesome. Service was prompt, the food was great. I would like to visit again, and will recommend this place to anyone. Pricing? On the higher side, but worth it.

Rabia was a good host. Changed arrival time a couple of times but he was very accommodating of my schedules, had gifts in hand and checked constantly to make sure we were satisfied with the food. Not too pricy and good ambiance.

I love the ambiance of the Restaurant. From the the home coming atmosphere in its exterior to the right light setting in the interior, great food and excellent dessert make this place as good for a formal lunch meeting to a very relaxed and drawn out official dinner. With family and friends you would be glad you made this your... More

Villa Medici is a pleasant restaurant in Victoria island, Lagos. Set in a charming building (a converted residential home), it has three main dining areas: a private room which can be hired out for functions, a main dining space and a nice outside dining space in the gardens. The food and service at Villa Medici were good. We had the... More

We visited here in December whilst on a business trip to Lagos. With the name I was expecting an Italian menu which there was not and the options were fairly limited. Both myself and my colleague had a steak for our main which was ok and not medium rare which was asked for. Overall the meal was ok, cost was... More

This beautiful restaurant was mismanaged for a couple of years but I am very happy to say now that the management is back in the hands of the owner and the improvement is immediate. A beautiful setting, lovely food and nice wines. N.B. The most beautiful decorated ladies in Lagos, everything is so elegant.

The food at Villa Medici is great, but I don't like the fact that each time I've been there we've had to wait at least 30 minutes for our table to be ready
