[This review is only for the restaurant, not the hotel.]
The Wheatbaker was a nice restaurant. For Lagos. But it probably wouldn't make it on the level that it is trying to exist in any other major city. It was clean, and the food was decent, and the selection was more than fair. The service was very good; however, I attribute that more to the waiters' recognition of my travel companion, rather than just good service, since I saw others vying unsucessfully for their attention.
The atmosphere was noisy and a bit crowded. When full, and it appeared the type of locale that was ALWAYS full, it was a bit uncomfortable manipulating the buffet without hitting patrons' tables.
The restaurant gave the impression of trying too hard to be the "it" place to be and be seen. The patrons obviously wanted to be seen as being in an extremely upscale and haute couture restaurant, and this one didn't fit the bill. It wasn't a bad restaurant - far from it - but it was rather pedestrian considering the prices it charged and the attitude it attempted to present.
