“Fab food and great service”
Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Just had a fantastic meal tonight sat out on the roof terrace of this restaurant. Just happened to be in Lagos and took a chance on this place. Was so good we have booked to go again in a few days time before returning to the Uk. A fab find this holiday.

“Good value fine dining in Lagos”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Specialises in fish, steak and a wide choice of other foods. Great location right in the centre of Lagos. Lovely food, good service and efficient staff - customers of all ages and nationalities. Sat outside on a lovely summer's evening and had a most enjoyable and relaxing meal. Was here a couple of years ago when last in Lagos and would definitely visit again.

“All Smoke and Mirrors! Actually the worst meal we had in Lagos”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

We have found Lagos to be rich in the variety and quality of dining it offers. This is why we had no hesitation in choosing D. Henrique for our evening meal. Aesthetically, it looked warm, inviting, classy and accommodating. We had walked past on a few evenings and considered going in.

Tonight, we took the plunge and ate there. First impressions were good - Staff seemed attentive and we ordered drinks, starters and main courses. My wife ordered the white asparagus starter which is supposed to be some kind of 'Local delicacy'. However, it was the worst asparagus she had ever tasted!! It was overcooked by around 20 minutes. Both my starter and our main courses were served with thick, brightly coloured sauces, which were in no way appealing. To top it off, both main courses were served with rice loaded with nuts, when there was no mention of this in the menu. I am allergic to nuts and had to send the dish back (politely and apologetically). This was coldly received by the waitress, who returned the dish two minutes later with the nuts scraped off!

They missed a 20 EUR bottle of wine and water from the bill, which seemed to emphasise their approach: uncaring, lacking in expertise and solely 'smoke and mirrors'.
