“Great place for ice-cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I scream, you scream, we scream for Ice-Cream rah-rah-rah.
When you here the name Chocolate Royale my mouth just water. I visit the Etim Iyang Victoria Island branch almost every weekend.
There ice-cream is totally out of this world. I love it love it love it.

“Higher hype than reality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Many ice cream flavours yes, but environment doesn't live up; except for the Palms outlet. It could do a bit more brush and maybe nature.

“Delicious breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I had a delicious omelette here for breakfast on my first day in Lagos. We sat on the balcony overlooking the street and enjoyed the people watching. The cakes in the bakery below looked extremely good. There was an excellent selection of breads to buy too.

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Met few gals for lunch here during first week in Lagos. Had read some less than positive reviews so was expecting average! I was surprised. I thought the service was fine. A little slow and possibly chaotic but didn't affect our experience. The drinks and food menus are extensive and everything we had served was good. Spring rolls looked amazing as did squid and wraps. My chicken suya was delicious. Will make it a regular.

“Another Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Good food at reasonable prices. Ambiance leaves a little to be desired, but you can eat inside or outside on the balcony (overlooking the road). If karaoke is your thing, I think they still do this on Thursday nights - otherwise, avoid Thursdays!
