Went for a family lunch on a Saturday, ordered juices, soup and sandwich. All this took more than 40mins to be served although the restaurant was nearly empty. Food is nothing special. 5 stars facilities but below average in terms of Service, even by Nigerian standards. Would not recommend eating there.

1st day at the FPH and decided to stay in and checked out their buffet. They have 2 sections: local Nigerian and International food + usual starters and dessert. How was it? The local food was totally overcooked and both the beef and fish is so hard that basically not eatable! The International selection was better but the chicken was... More

When you just have to have Sunday roast, chicken, beef or pork, Federal Palace does the best! The meat is cooked to perfection and although the vegetables are a bit disappointing, the salad bar and starters make up for it!

The Federal palace Hotel (lovingly known as FPH) is an institution in the Hospitality + Food & Beverage industry in Naija. The restaurant serves delicious food in a nice environment. Lovely

Federal palace 5 Star hotel is the best kept secret in Lagos, from the lounge to diverse expressions within the hotel, you know you are home away from home.

Since I was staying at the hotel and it is difficult to go out in the evening as a foreigner, I had a couple of dinners at this restaurant. Food was surprisingly good, as was the wine by the glass. Decent service. And very nice terrasse in the evening!

Lovely arrangement and choice of cuisines, it offers a standard that other restaurants could learn from. Nice environment overlooking the Apapa Sea Port form Victoria Island. Diners have an opportunity to see large ships sail while dinning. Since it faces the Atlantic ocean waters, it would be lovely if more seafood could be inculcated in the menu.

I have a bit of a bias. I tend to think that hotel restaurants lack the flavor and ambiance I tend to look for when I go to a restaurant. That, and I tend to think they are overpriced for what you usually get. This concept fell on its face hard when I had dinner last night downstairs. Everything from... More

This Hotel has a great terrace and lunches on the terrace with the beautiful seaviews is fantastic as there are very few places to go in Lagos that give you this lovely outdoor experience. The gardens are beautiful and green and the terrace has fans that are on and help with the heat. You also get a beautiful breeze which... More
