If you are looking for somewhere special then this is the place. The setting is lovely, the service is excellent and the menu is an absolute joy. This restaurant is slightly off the beaten track but well worth going. Booking is advisable especially during the busy months. Also it only seems to be open on an evening.

A special place to go! Very, very nice restaurant in a perfect location, ten minutes outside from Lagos center. Execllent food at reasonable pricing. Unbeatable ambience outside in a gardenlike set-up. But also inside nicely decorated. Very friendly and hostipable owners and service team! My favourite: Salada Cachoa and lamb rack. Beware: no credit cards!

We sat outside and had a very enjoyable meal in a lovely setting. We all enjoyed our meal but one small criticism was that the soup for starters was quite small but still very tasty.

The food and service all excellent. Everyone had something different so we tried the lamb, the sea bass and the vegetarian lasagne. Atmosphere in the garden magical as the lights came on.

We telephoned the restaurant over a period of a week. There was no answer or message so we drove down to find the place looking forsaken and derelict. A heavy padlocked chain across the gate and the outside looked very untidy. A good ending though - we went instead to Dom Henrique in Lagos and had an excellent of fillet... More

The setting of Cachoa is perfect for a sophisticated and enjoyable meal out, situated in a hidden 'fairy garden' feel clearing. There is the option for both outside and inside seating, and blankets are offered on arrival for the evening. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly and the food is something else! Try the duck breast with dauphinois potatoes... More

Myself and my family have been visiting Cachoa every year since Cachoa have opened. The settings (particularly outside) are so beautiful and rural looking despite the newly build road near the location. From Couvet to desert the food really is fantastic and the service is always friendly. Would I recommend ? Certainly and will I be returning? Definitely ! A... More
