Coffees to finish and all for 35 euros. The platter of 4 fish must have taken me the best part... More

I fancied some fish, and was told about this restaurant. I was welcomed by a helpful waiter , who helped me chose some nice fresh fish, with salad and garlic potatoes, and a nice glass of wine.

2nd visit to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Food is simple yet superb, the service is always friendly and the wine is fantastic for the price. 34 euros for 2 to dine with a bottle of wine. Would recommend the seabass portion and all you can eat fish platter. Our favourite restaurant in Lagos.

Great service and very fresh and local. I would recommend to drive or get the 60c little short ferry across, as we walked over the bridge in the midday heat. Great staff and great atmosphere. A++.
