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

The food here is really excellent. The staff are friendly and service is good. Six of us ate on the terrace and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The rack of lamb was superb. The only downside to this restaurant is that it doesn't take credit cards which is somewhat archaic!

Visited here for the second time this evening (first time when we were in Lagos 3 years ago) Absolutely amazing food. The choice of dishes and presentation was excellent. We dined here as a group of 6 friends so sampled quite a few dishes on offers. The staff were very good. We sat outside, which was lovely on a summers... More

This was our first visit to Lagos and to Cachoa. We wish we found this restaurant earlier during our visit! The food was amazing and the lovely staff made our evening a one we remember. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Lagos.

We've been coming to Lagos for around 7 years and not really heard of this restaurant before but it is highly rated so we gave it a try. It's in the middle of nowhere but a lovely setting and you can sit outside or inside and the staff were very good and helpful. We had the house wine, both red... More

Second time at this restaurant and would not return. The first time was summer and I think the outdoor ambience was what made the evening special. However on returning in low season we were sat indoors and it did not have the same feel and so our focus was on the food. We were surprised at the compromising flavours on... More
