Our first visit to Lagos and this lovely restaurant; excellent service, exquisite couvert of prawns, pate etc. Lovely atmosphere and spotlessly clean. Enjoyed chateaubriand although the fresh fish the waiter brought for us to see looked wonderful so can't wait to go back!

The first choice was fully booked but this one was much better! Excellent food and adequate staff. Very original atmosphere and not too busy. House wine was very good. Dinner was served with nice vegetables and fries. Appetizers were tasty. A place to return to!

Ate here 2 years ago and was pretty good then - standards are still right up there. Visited with my wife, 4 yr old son and mother-in-law (brave!) Hardly a word spoken whilst we ate - think that says it all!!

Arrived here 30 minutes ahead of the time we had booked as the walk up the hill hadn't taken quite as long as we expected but as our table was ready they welcomed us in. We didn't take advantage of the fresh fish as my son and daughter wanted fillet steak and I had lamb chops and my husband lamb... More

We were @ this place several years and each year was perfect. Compliment to the the team and the chef cook. You have to try the chateaubriant. Best meat in town. But also the food in general!!! Thanks ! Gunnar
