Our party of four had booked a table for dinner at 7.00 p.m. When we arrived only a couple of tables were occupied. Half an hour later the restaurant was almost full. For starters I shared fried strips of squid with my wife. I ordered grilled sole for mains and my wife had grilled sea bass. They were cooked to... More

Great welcome and service. Perfectly cooked fish, best we have had in Lagos. Highly recommended. Had just reopened after the winter break and people were flocking in.

This is the best restaurant in Lagos!! Carlos and his team are fantastic :-) We have been coming here for 13 years and have always left happy, full and not an empty wallet!! We celebrated my dad's 80th birthday here and nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait to return in March :-)

A really good choice of dishes and great service. The owner and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the complimentary dessert wine so much I asked the proprieter to get me a bottle for our next visit, which he did. His 5 litre container would have been too difficult to pack! A very feel good restaurant not to be... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for twenty years and it is still the first one we visit . Carlos always has a warm welcome and we have never been disappointed with any meal. I love the Lamb with garlic the sea bass is excellent and well presented and the Duck special is a favourite with our grandsons. Thanks Carlos... More

We eat here a number of times on every holiday in Lagos and did this October. We are always made very welcome by the owner Carlos and his staff. Itis very nice to sit at a table outside and watch the world go by as you enjoy the excellent well prepared food with a glass or two of wine. Over... More

We eat here every year when we visit Lagos and the food, service and welcome are exceptional. A must try is the fish bake which is ordered couple of days in advance and is truly delicious. Highly recommended.

My wife and I visited here on two occasions during our recent visit to Lagos. We had a small baby with us also. On both occasions the restaurant was packed and there were queues waiting to get in so it would be useful to have a reservation. There is a great atmosphere here. Seating is close together so don't go... More

Not just another tourist restaurant. Yes it's on the main drag but if you're after great food and good service then this place is ideal. Starters are big so you may want to share. Wild boar is rich and gamey, highly recommended. Baby shrimp also very good.
