Fish soup was very tasty and the steak was perfect. The prices are very reasonable and the waitress is very efficient. Lovely meal.

“Beautiful food, caring people and service in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

1. Food, absolutely delicious. My boyfriend and I had the mixed tapas for two, followed by the mixed grill for two. Both dishes were divine; so flavorsome! The house white wine was delicious as well and worked well with both courses. Even though there was little room left we had desserts; chocolate brownie and pear charlotte. I’m not usually a big fan of chocolate brownie, but it was delicious. My boyfriend was such a fan that on returning (we made a reservation to come again at end of our week) he planned to leave enough room to ensure he could have that dessert again! The pear charlotte (my choice) was scrummy!
2. Service. I have never prioritized the service, as in, as long as it is a reasonable standard, I don’t give it too much more thought. However, in this case, I would weight the service equally (alongside the delicious food) on delivering a fantastic dining experience. Everyone who works here are such lovely people, and they take special care of all their guests. They will do their best to cater for everyone no matter what their requests. They have great attention to detail and are so welcoming. I find it hard to believe any bad reviews of this place, as I do believe that the staff would go above and beyond to please and ensure a good dining experience, in so far as possible.
3. Atmosphere in restaurant. Very quaint and cosy; the ambiance was relaxing with a soft chilled music playing quietly in background. The interior reflects well the old building itself. However, there are only a few tables inside and outside – I would highly recommend booking in advance.
As mentioned already, we made a booking again for the end of our week and having tried some of the other restaurants which ranked highly on trip advisor, we still ranked this as our favorite dining experience in Lagos!

“Recommended and would recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

My brother recommended this restaurant and it was so quaint and traditional with the most friendly staff. We booked the day before and pleased we did as it is very small and they were turning loads of people away. It was like being taken back in time. Fabulous

“Happy Times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Great food & friendly staff been many times to this restaurant & never been disappointed. Seating inside and outside with beautiful views of the ocean and the marina. Reataurant tucked away from the hustle of the main street of the town but close enough to continue your evening to a bar. Would recommend to a friend & prices are fair.
