“Delicious calamari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Gorgeous restaurant and interesting flooring...

This place is a must for seafood lovers. I really enjoyed my calamari starter and prawns main.

The portions were huge and i couldn't finish it all (unfortunately i forgot to take my doggy bag :( ) but I'll definitely return.

The staff were pleasant bordering on over-zealous, lol,and this particular guy made us giggle but he was a good sport.

Prices on the high side but worth it i'll say.

“Best food in lagos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Great food, everything on the menu is delicious. The mongolian beef is highly recommended along with some of the caramel dishes. A bit pricey but definitely worth it.

“Interesting decor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Great services and good food. The level of spiciness is pretty low though. The decor is quite interesting. Very authentic.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Food here was good. Had various selections and all of it was recommendable. Went there at workday night, not much guests and therefore very silent and calm atmosphere.

“Best seafood pizza I've had anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I've been to Metisse twice while on business in Lagos. Both times I ordered the same seafood pizza. It's not a normal behavior for me but it was so good the first time I had to try it again. I stand by my statement that its the best I've had anywhere. Fresh fruit juices are excellent as well.

Restaurant has a nice balcony but with not much of a view. Still very comfortable. It's a casual place with reasonable prices for Lagos.

Definitely worth a visit.

Dear PeterKalish - Thank you for taking your time to review our restaurant. AT Metisse we do not serve Pizzas. You are probably referring to our sister Restaurant Cafe Royal. We are glad you enjoyed the Pizza look forward to welcoming you at Metisse for Pan Asian cuisine, located next to Cafe Royal, Warm Regards
