This place is soooooo much more than a bar!
I visited Bar Campione for the first time last night after having heard some small whispers around Lagos that it was good. Having been here for four years I am used to hearing places are good but often end up with the same - average food, over priced!
But not at Bar Campione, finally a place that serves high quality food (and drink) at reasonable prices. We started with cocktails at the bar which were good and less that 1500n which is rare. At the table we enjoyed the prawn and calamari starters, both were very tasty and beautifully presented.
For main course, one of us nervously ordered steak but were told it was South African steak and we were not disappointed. Perfectly cooked and very tender with a lovely peppercorn sauce and fries with truffle oil were to die for. Another dish was gnocchi, very rich but every mouthful was a taste explosion. One of my friends ate aubergine (yawn) but no, it was an exciting and delicious dish. Finally, I took the pizza which had a yummy thin base and plenty of topping. A good size, couldn't finish it mainly because I was so busy trying everyone else's food too.
We washed it all down with a bottle of white wine (bottles start from 2500n upto 7000n) which was served properly chilled.
The service throughout the night was attentive and slick, the staff know their stuff and are professional. I personally can't wait to go back and am plotting my next visit.
What I am most happy about it that I actually went to this place - it is often referred to as a sports bar and that just does not do it justice. The down stairs serves as a full on restaurant/cocktail bar - you could be in any city in the world, it's sophisticated and modern. Upstairs is where they specialize in sports.
Standards are too good for this just to be pre match scoff place, it's perfect for a date, dinner with the girls, family dinners and of course catching a game. Well done to the owners!
