We visited Arribale twice during our recent stay. First time we didn't book a table but were fortunate to get a table outside (possibly due to it being a bit of a breezy evening) and as it was so good we thought we'd best reserve a table for the following week which was inside.

The sizzling sausage is an unusual but fun and very tasty starter! Not to say the other starters weren't as tasty but possibly not as much fun!

The sharing mixed salad was amazing, the mains were great, sea bass and bream were fantastic on both occasions as was the piri piri chicken.

Service was excellent and even when the misread order for garlic bread came as garlic prawns, they were "on the house" and the garlic bread arrived minutes later anyway.

House wine is a great option and if you do order a short drink. make sure you haven't had too many drinks beforehand as the measures are ridiculously generous! :)

Definitely recommended!

I have brought family and friends to this restaurant on two separate occasions and both were fantastic experiences. Ken’s hospitality is second to none; he can’t do enough to accommodate you. The cuisine is local and mostly cooked on the BBQ. They have vegetarian options on the menu too and all the dishes were delicious! The wine was also some of the best we’d tasted in Lagos and we only ordered the house.
Recommend booking as it’s a quaint little restaurant and is very popular. Will be coming again when I’m next in Lagos!

This is a real winner. Small, very quirky restaurant not too easy to find but well worth checking out. Piri piri chicken & flaming sausage recommended. Serving staff very friendly and entertaining. Lovely vibe.

You have to book in advance but it is definitely worth a visit. Good choice of starters and mains with a fresh fish of the day on offer. I had the flaming salami - very tasty if a bit scary to have a fire at the table!. The sea bass was excellent - a large fish with lovely crisp skin cooked on their bbq at the front of the restaurant. My husband had the lamb chops. As others have mentioned the key lime pie was scrummy. Had a lovely bottle of Chamine with the meal a new wine for us. A great place to eat we have booked it for our last night in Lagos.
