A really nice place to eat which is also very much a place of entertainment.

I have had lovely meals here. Especially in a large group ( 10 people) but also just a family meal. The food is very tasty. There is often a lot of entertainment going on ( live music, karaoke, football) so it is not the quietest place in the world but of course it depends on what time you are... read more

Excellent bar,Good food too and hot drinks.Entertainment is usually excellent. Monday night you'll find Ashleen, a beautiful singer who performs all manner of songs. Her version of Hello by Adele is actually better than the aforementioned!! Sarah's karaoke is very enjoyable on Wednesday and Saturday and Wendy and Adam are well worth the watch on Fridays. Luis is a great... More

A really friendly bar/restaurant close to the Tivoli Lagos hotel and just off the riverside in central Lagos. Luis owns the bar next door as well so sets them up slightly differently. Luis's is an old fashioned pub and Artista more a bar/bistro. Good choice on the menu, and not expensive compared to anywhere else in the town centre. To... More

We visit every time we come to Lagos. We are always welcomed back as old friends by Luis and his staff. The food and drink àre reasonably priced. We dance and sing along to the live music and even join in the kàraoke twice a week. A great place to meet old and new friends.

We make a point of visiting the O Artista bar on numerous occasions every time we stay in Lagos. It is equally enjoyable for dinner or just a couple of drinks. Extremely well stocked bar, good & varied menu and friendly, efficient staff. The owner (we think), Luis, is frequently behind the bar and always extends a warm welcome. There... More
