We stayed in the penthouse apartment in the same building and chose here on recommendation to have something to eat on our last day. Wish we had been earlier as we would most definitely have eaten here more than once. Food all fresh and lots to chose from on the menu. Kids had wraps and chilli. I had the salad... More

Many people will walk past Fresco thinking it merely a cafe. BIG mistake, HUGE mistake. As a confirmed meat eater, I know that Fresco serves THE tastiest vegetarian meals in Lagos. The flavours dance on your tongue and each mouthful is a sensational thrill all of its own. HOWEVER, Fresco does not merely serve vegetarian dishes. ALL of its food... More

I treat myself to eating in this restaurant each time I work in Lagos. There's always veggie and vegan options, the food, like the name, is fresh, and there's a great variety - from all-day breakfast to healthy salad. The staff are friendly and pleasant and the portions are ample; prices are reasonable. 5*

A wee oasis in the more residential area if Lagos but just a stones throw from the marina. Only open Monday - Saturday and it closes at 16.00. Fresh food all cooked to order and perfect for a breakfast or lunch - plenty to choose from and nice juices too.

We arrived in Lagos to start a week's break in a thunderstorm, in the dark! We were tired and hungry and luckily Cafe Fresco was open late for a private party and the guy who runs it very kindly made us a couple of sandwiches, which calmed the pangs of hunger. Not only that, he told us where the local... More

I think I've previously reviewed this cafe and it got a good rating. However, on my last visit I fancied fish & chips, I asked the waitress what the fish was. She replied it was a white fish, which doesn't really narrow it down enough so I asked if she could find out. She returned saying that the chef did... More

We've visited this cafe, both with friends and on our own, for lunch. Cafe is usually busy, always a good sign, the menu offers a great choice, whether for breakfast or lunch. Service is speedy, food is well presented and above all, is extremely well cooked and good value for money Recommend to all
