Very popular and crowded place. You need to make reservation or be the few first lucky one after opening to get a table! Traditional food, good vines and friendly english speaking waiters. Quick service, fair prices.

This place is a true gem - seriously somewhere you have to dine at while in Lagos. The cataplana dishes to share are amazing.

Lucky to get in without booking and had to wait an hour even on a mid week night. It was well worth it and we booked again for 2 days later. Extensive menu and excellent food.

We read the reviews of this restaurant and decided to come here for a cataplana.We queued with other guests in the street for an hour assuming it would be worth the wait, we must say the queuing system was very organised. We chose the pork...More
