We had the the following dishes; pan seared fillet of turbot with truffle crust, spinach, salmon fillet and roll on sweet corn-wasabi purée, sauteéd leek and miso foam, and the roasted black Angus fillet of beef with garlic purée, truffle jus, but without the mushrooms. All of these and the... More

So we decided to go for a fine dining option this year and it was worth every penny! The restaurant was so warm & cozy even though there was an electrical storm & torrential rain, food was amazing and staff very friendly & professional. We did have to wait a while for our main courses but they were worth it... More

While Lagos is famous for cafes, this restaurant provides a fine dining experience as an alternative. It's a splurge that is worth the cost yet the prices are comparable to Boston where we're from -- just more expensive than the average meal in Lagos. In addition to the lovely ambiance and great service, we were treated to an amuse bouche... More

Good service and food at reasonable prices in a wonderful place. Nice gesture to let us take what was left of the wine home.

This was my second visit here but our family visit every time they are in Lagos and it did not disappoint. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is perfect and the service is outstanding. We were a party of 6 and the staff were attentive and happy to help in any way they could. We had starters, soups, mains, desserts... More

We had the tasting menu which was very nice and they catered for my dietary requirements. We choose a bottle of red wine from the wine list rather than the one that was recommended from the tasting menu.

Visited with friends as read TripAdvisor reviews and had big hopes for this restaurant but left really disappointed. The restaurant position itself in the fine dining category: testing menus, amuse bouche, exciting sounding combinations.. having read the menu we were excited.. but when food arrived it simply lacked flavour. I had a salmon dish with wasabi.. it was over cooked... More

We visited here in September and opted for the tasting menu. You will not be disappointed the food was excellent and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Seating outside is very good, sit and relax, enjoy some beautiful food and watch the world go by. O! and don't forget to order a bottle of wine. It doesn't get much... More

Recently did lunch in Artistas. Nice restaurant, friendly and attentive staff. However the whole experience was a bit dull. Overall food was good but no more than I would expect in a Michelin star restaurant, however all felt flat and we did not feel the wow factor. Having done Artistas I would not need to return and would not feel... More
