Villa Medici is an oasis in lagos where places spark for a few short months then plunge back into the darkness. Pat and Mouin have kept the standards up over many years - originally at La Scala and others but for a good - wow how many years? 12 at least - have kept medici at the top. Pat runs the kitchen with a passion for standards ( and whoa betide any member of staff who lets them slip ) while Mouin is simply the best 'front of house' maitre I have come across anywhere. He knows who to treat with respect and who to abuse (me !). The Prawn dishes are special, the steaks are consistently good and my favourites are some of the simple pastas. Its not cheap because lagos is expensive but actually the wine list is one of the more reasonable in town. I would give it 5 but to be honest the poor infrastructure and the challenges of running quality in Nigeria make International 5 Stars impossible but Villa comes as close as most.

Great atmosphere and good food. The waiters try but don't ask them too many questions. Very expensive as well. Anywhere outside of Nigeria it wouldn't be worth the money. With a corporate credit card in Lagos, it's a staple.

It's a cosy little place in Victoria Island. With some nice food. I would say the portions are small, so it's not a place to go if you are hungry. But the food tastes good ;-)
