It was getting on for half ten at night & we got turned away from three places for it being too late. The friendly waitress here was only too happy to accommodate us. They found us a table for four near the windows so we could people watch whilst having a drink. We decided to pick two tapas dishes each and then we would share them between us. Octopus skewers, garlic mushroom bruschetta, shell-on prawns, filo pastry sausage & cheese bites, garlic potatos, squid bites & mushrooms, goats cheese & parma ham. Every dish was delicious & the service was faultless. I have seen a few other reviews regarding time issues - this was no problem for us with everything arriving together, neither too slowly nor so quick that you felt you were being pushed out the door. Prices were very good too. Would go again & from my experience I cannot see why this place is not more highly rated

Eat here on two occasions and was hugely impressed by the food, service and decor. Highlights include octopus, monkfish, stuffed mushroom and broad bean & chorizo...tempura sardines were also delish. In fact, everything we had was top drawer. Streets ahead of most restaurants and prob the best tapas we've ever had which is quite a statement. Highly recommended.

Was in Lagos for a fortnight and ate out for lunch and dinner every day. For the most part the standard of food was pretty disappointing. The food we had here was as better than most places by a long shot. Bit more thought in the menu and offers something a bit different. Had oxtail with chick peas, mussels, pork skewers and a calamari. All of which were pretty tasty. Desserts were also the best we had in Lagos. Service was a wee bit slow and took a wee while to get drinks and our order taken. Found this easy enough to overlook as the food was better than most other places and the staff were friendly. Would certainly go again if in Lagos.

Having read other reviews I can see where people are coming from on the time issue, however for us this was by far the nicest food we had during our 10 night stay. Would recommend the mushrooms with goats cheese and Parma ham. Also the creme brûlée was fantastic.
