“bright seats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

another very good restaurant in the old town of lagos. there is lots of outside seating here so you can get in ok without booking.the seating looks like a juice bar as they are bright yellow and green but food is very good, thrchoise is great lots of fish here and local dishes a great wine list but the house wine is very good and prices are great.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Tried this restaurant based on reviews. Would agree with one previous reviewer who was also disappointed,food was average and my partners steak was tough.plastic tables don't do it for us when paying these prices. Staff were helpful and pleasant.
Can't understand the rave reviews as we had better food elsewhere.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Came here with my boyfriend for a romantic meal. The whole place is just so cosy and nice and the food was very very good. It was a little pricy but definitely worth every penny!

“Relaxing and authentic ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

They are only open from 7pm to about 10pm.
Walk by when you're checking out the town and make reservations.
This place is full of character. Their pate and bbq ribs were delicious.
The beef was a bit chewy though. Both their patio and indoor space have an authentic and very relaxing feel to them. The staff are very friendly as well. Enjoy.

“Staff Outshine the Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I almost feel guilty writing this nreview because the staff are so friendlt, helpful and welcoming, and yet the food dissaponts.
Five of us eating, so a mixed selection.
Starters, the flaming sausage was far to salty, and the mixed Arribale starter for two had frozen calamari. and packet toasts.
Mains also disapointing, with over salted fish, and the mixed grill, which arrived late, was tough and dry.
Limited wine list, with the hiouse wines a little sharp.
I think the fundamental problem like a lot of other Lagos restaurants is lack of kitchen space.
