Out last meal in Lagos and it was our best. The food was full of flavour. We had the lamb chops and the octopus and squid which were both incredibly tasty. Gorgeous attentive local staff.

Have been coming to Lagos for four years and this is definitely my favourite place to eat. Always have to come twice per visit! The staff are wonderful, the prawn appetisers are to die for and the steak is perfect. Cannot recommend highly enough.

You were the most distespecting guest we had... there was 20 persons that entered before you, you wanted atention like the others wanted also. For only one server you wanted too much, if you cant wait a little bit, we cannot do anything.
