Metisse is a lovely pan-Asian restaurant located on Etim Inyang street in Victoria Island. Good food, good service and nice ambiance.

The positive is that the restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a lovely ambience. Negative: for a valentines day dinner, one would have expected the restaurant to up its service experience but it was the reverse. Our waiter was incredibly dismissive and seemed in a hurry to leave everytime he got to the table. The starter came out fine but... More

Metisse has to be the best restaurant serving Pan-Asian cuisine in Nigeria. The variety of starters and main dishes is amazing and make sure you ask for the Mongolian Beef! Price-wise, I believe it's the most affordable among all restaurants in Lagos when it comes to fine dining. Average of N5,000 to N6,000 per person

Hadn't been back here after our first visit so many years ago and it was refreshingly different when we visited on the 18th of December. Everything had changed, decor, service culture, menu and the air conditioning too. After a while, we had to request that the air conditioning was turned down. Our waiter was very courteous, attentive and most helpful... More

This restaurant is definitely one Lagos' hidden gems. A dinner there is a most rewarding culinary experience. It is great for a date or a quiet dinner between friends to savor Thai, Malaysian, Singaporean cuisines with a hint of indian cooked to perfection with great high quality ingredients.

WE HAD BUSINESS DINNER for three people. the place was almost empty and the local has fair (maybe little bit tacky) decoration on the inside. The outside is not great though a MUST IS THE COOCONUT SOUP /thai style) which is great. My tempura shrimp were good but no to die for. Service Ok even though was some delay between... More

We dined at Metisse on Thursday night and it was a culinary experience. We shared Mongolian beef, Thai chicken and Singapore fried rice and all was just excellent. Their cook is Lebanese. Best meal I have had for a while. Dinner per person with a drink is about 25 USD. The downside was that the place was basically empty apart... More

Had a fantastic meal last night. The dining room at Metisse is classy and cozy at the same time. Their menu is Asian-Fusion with a few really good Thai dishes. We had excellent Chicken Pad Thai N3400 and Prawn Pad Thai. N3900 In my opinion it was far better than the leading Thai restaurant on VI. The ground chicken samosas... More

Wonderful cocktails (just be careful - alcohol content may be slightly higher than usual) and the grilled salmon is just delicious and beautifully presented. Oh, and with Chocolat Royal just downstairs, you can spoil yourself with the rich desserts. Prices also reasonable (main courses about NGN3,000 - 5,500: $15 - 27.5 pp).
