“Great place and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We went past this place on most days and it was always busy. Finally on our last day in Lagos there was an empty table so we gave it a try. So glad we did as it was a great place to eat. We had a few buskers come and go on the street which added to the atmosphere. The food and service was excellent and great value for money. So glad we got a chance to visit and would definitely recommend you visit and you cant possibly be disappointed.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Great food. I had the turkey steak and it was really good, We sat outside and the waiters made up a table for 5 of us. One of the few places I went to that had a cider: Sommerset.

“A must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Was in this restaurant 30 years ago when travelling Europe as our one big treat. It was amazing then it is amazing now!! The lamb in red wine is just Devine!! The waiters are friendly, professional and know exactly what they are at. Talented buskers entertained us with a few jazz numbers like we were part of a movie while we dined alfresco on the cobble stone street with the gas lamps making sure we were oh so comfortable! Caravela - miss it at your peril!!

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Had a very enjoyable meal here. Swordfish was delicious and the fillet steak very good. Had the banana split for dessert and it was lovely and big enough for two people. Bill was very reasonable and waiters pleasant. Nice seating area outside to watch the world go by. Recommend
