LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this place, especially after FINALLY eating and drinking here. We'd walked past countless times during our stay in Lagos, and kept saying we'd stop there because it was always packed. The food, drink, and service was excellent. It was clear the locals loved it and so did we. We'll definitely be back.

This is a good basic restaurant with slightly lower than average prices. It's a good location and it has recently expanded so they must be doing well. This was our second visit and I think we now realise this place does some things well. Best thing to do is hover and see what people are ordering. Chicken and fresh fish... More

This restaurant was right across from where we were staying so we had lunch there almost every day, after returning from the beach. The restaurant is right next to a camping area and it is quite busy at lunchtime. That said, the service was very poor--not only was it slow, but two of the three waiters seemed very confused and...

Stopped here for lunch. Although the place wasn't fancy the food was good. I had the piri piri chicken and my husband had the grilled sardines. Both were delicious. Glad we arrived when we did as the tables filled up shortly after. Our meal with bread and drinks came to about 20 euros.

Great food, fantastic service and you get to ask for whatever you want without it being a big deal. A highlight in the city of Lagos.

Went for dinner once day, the food is alright, not great ..but worth the money! The service is fine and fast. I guess it works very well for the location (next to camping site).

We spent a lot of time here on a recent family holiday. Exceptionally good value for money, had some lovely meals here. The staff were lovely and worked so hard as the place is so busy!!! We were a bit disappointed with a couple of our meals on one occasion and we were offered replacements and not charged. The staff... More
