Our usual restaurant in Lagos was closed so tried here instead. Food was nice and very good value for money. Staff pleasant. Under 30euro for 2 adult meals.

Loved the fresh lunch here. Seafood straight from the grill. Set on a busy street, buskers, people and lots of life going on around. Great sangria and good price. Give it a try.

The plus points of this place is that it’s in a buzzing location, and the staff were nice and attentive but our food was awful. I ordered the spaghetti with shrimps and mushrooms - they tasted like tinned mushrooms, and the entire dish just tasted...More

Surprised at the terrible reviews. We had a really lovely grilled swordfish here, and service was fine. Only thing that spoiled it a little was a busker deciding to play his accordion very loudly right next to us.

This restaurant is in a prime position in Lagos, with seating in the middle of the main, cobbled street through the shopping area. We had a salami pizza between us, which was very tasty, and 2 beers and the bill came to €12!
