This restaurant is just right at the bottom of the drive from the Tivoli Hotel.
Food is excellent as long as you don't mind the wait. We waited a hour for our food but it was well worth it. The owner is the the only waiter! My husband ordered the salmon and was really surprised when he got 2 salmon steaks and loads of veg and potatoes. I had pork with mushrooms
which was very nice. At the end of the meal we were given a complimentary glass of port which was delicious.
We could recommend this restaurant. Lovely food and quite cheap. But does need to moved into the 21st century.

This place is next to the Tivoli hotel. Not quite sure where the picture of the restaurant came from but it's not correct photo. Waiter and owner has a charm that warms you. Food is very good. Lacks music for background though, otherwise I would have scored it higher.

Every January for the last 10 years I visit Lagos with a bunch of golfing friends (all foodies). This is one of our 5 "must go to" places. This year I had the Chef's Prawns which were simply magnificent.
Alex is always very attentive and the food is always superbly cooked.
Not the place to go if you are in a hurry as Alex serves by himself and Rosy is the solitary chef so it can take a while.

We have visited several times over the years and always enjoy our meal and the atmosphere. It's a friendly place and you can tell that people return year after year. I had the pork with mushrooms and the meat was really tender and a good cut. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the steak. The portions are very good and it's also good value. We sometimes stop off there just for a quick drink early evening too.
