The food is really, really good, I never tire of going here. Our family group of 10 including children, had both meat and fish dishes. I had the fresh tuna which was the size of my plate, and the taste was amazing! Those who had the meat dishes were equally as happy. It's a very busy restaurant, no frills, but delivers great food, and if it's fish - as their slogan says - from the sea to your plate.

If you arrive in Lagos by train, you are likely to pass the Tasca da Lote as you head to the centre on foot. If not, it is in the fishermen's zone over the river - past the yachting marina. This location does not prevent it being highly popular. Great fish and seafood, at reasonable prices. We enjoyed fried prawns with garlic and grilled tuna belly. My mouth is watering just remembering it.

Set away from the main streets with all the restaurants we found this simple little grill. Lots of locals which is always a good sign. Nice plain, no fuss food. Perfect for us. No credit cards so take cash. Fast service, friendly staff and delicious food.
