“prices are outrageous, food is fine”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

For what should be the main hub for West Africa, LOS has far less service options than other airports in far smaller countries on the continent - Accra and Nairobi being good examples. There used to be several options for food and drink landside at Lagos airport - Abibiz, a snack bar in the departures area and some chop bars downstairs. Now there's only one - Abibiz. And they know it - prices are outrageous. Food is fine with a reasonable choice, and service is good (apart from the bouncer at the door soliciting tips).

However, if you need to eat or drink and don't want to pay the high prices, wait until you get airside and use the café/bar on the other side - still overpriced, but not as bad as Abibiz.

Thanks a lot for your candid review.....firstly we are a proper restaurant and not a snack bar, and the prices we provide, unfortunately are the way they are because of what we pay to the federal Govt of Nigeria, in terms of rent, concession fees etc
We wish we could offer them cheaper, but we sadly cannot.
Our apologies for the unprofessional attitude of the security at the door, that is being dealt with.
Thanks for your patronage

Reviewed June 9, 2013

In a far from reasonable airport, the place is one of the few options if you find yourself stuck there for some hours and need to have a meal. Food and service are reasonable and prices are, as usual in Lagos, outrageous. Lack of options make it better than it actually is...
