We went as a party of 6 and the good was brilliant. Very good quality, beautifully presented, and extremely tasty. Don't waste your money at Gaivota Branco.. go here instead as Vivendo deserves your custom.

We visited this restaurant, last week , at the end of our recent holiday to Portugal. We had read the excellent reviews and were hoping for a really nice meal. We chose the Wine and Dine Special Dinner for 2 persons and the quality of the food, decor and ambience of the restaurant and service exceeded all expectations. I genuinely... More

We have been visiting Vivendo for three years and just love it. The first two years we used to go for lunch which is served in the brasserie on the ground floor. This year we had lunch but also dinner (served in the upstairs dining room). The restaurant overlooks beautiful Meia Praia beach. The decor is classy, 'genteel'. The service... More

Vivendo is a beautiful restaurant serving food of the highest quality. Christof is a chef of many skills. The food is to die for and the service wonderful. The staff cannot do enough to make your visit a pleasurable experience and that's why we keep returning time after time. 10 out of 10. The best restaurant in Lagos by far.

Found this gem when in the area in May, and on our return 6 months later we were keen to return. Menu however was identical to last time, and is quite limited, so we ended up having much of the same food as on our previous visit. So think twice before returning after only a few months, but still highly... More

As usual every course cooked to perfection by chef Christoff and his team. The main courses were fantastic we were all upset when they were finished. Service as always discreet but 1st class.

We had dinner here in early November 2016 - last minute decision for a group of 4 plus a 4 month old. We arrived around 8pm - no reservation required and were well taken care of. My husband and I ordered the steak and tuna respectively - and let me just say the tuna blew my mind. We live in... More

This was by far one of the best dinners we had. The service was superb. The food was even better. It was the best tuna I have ever eaten- prepared perfectly- seared, but not overcooked. They really know how to cook fish here!

We were looking somewhere to eat to celebrate a birthday. We scrolled through the internet as we were looking to travel into Lagos. We found this restaurant by chance & on one our nightly strolls to the beach we asked some other guests who had just eaten . They gave rave reviews so we booked & the head waiter managed... More
