Nice little restaurant tucked away, all the meat is cooked on a grill which was delicious. This place is definitely worth checking out while in lagos

It's well known that Portuguese kitchen is really good, and that the quality of the food is just another level, but what I experience at Arribale was just one step further. Not only the whole menu makes you have one day to try each of the dishes, but also the staff is charming, funny and makes you feel like home.... More

Visited 17th September, table for four booked in advance. Food is excellent as per other reviews however a great asset to this place and differentiator from other restaurants is how Ken and his staff engage with you and work together as a team to provide a great dining experience. Long may it last, look forward to a return visit next... More

My boyfriend and I went here after reading trip advisor reviews. This is definitely a place you don't just stumble upon- it's very much off the Main Street. The restaurant is narrow but has very cool decor- models and pictures of old ships on the walls. It's dark but the candles add to the atmosphere. The man who appeared to... More

Visited Arribale again for the fourth year and not disappointed . It must be the best restaurant in Lagos. Service and food are excellent. I had garlic mushrooms and ribs, both were amazing. Make sure you book s table as now so popular you can't just drop in. Promised myself the ribeye next visit

I went there earlier this week but I've been trying to go for much longer than that. The place is not huge so it's hard to get a table - i suggest you book ahead. From the moment we were received by Ken and his staff we felt welcomed. The seabass, as my boyfriend put it, was the best seabass... More

It's a hidden gem and you have to look for it but the whole effort is worth it! We ordered the fish soup and the mixed grill which we enjoyed every bit of. The staff couldn't have been more friendly. Can recommend this place by heart!

We first visited this restaurant on our first trip to Lagos in 2015. It's such a lovely little restaurant, feels very personal and cosy. It's nice to sit outside but inside also had a great feel about it. The owner is great and it always feels like you are getting a personal service. The food is lovely, great garlic prawns,... More

Several times over the years we had gone looking for Arribale but had missed it for one reason or another. This year we made it our business to correct that. While coming home one evening we made a booking for the five of us. On arriving the following evening we were warmly greeted and brought to our seats inside as... More

This is a good place for fish and well cooked steak. Slightly rough around the edges but a world better than most neighbouring offerings. Warning, cash only, takes no cards
