Lovely arrangement and choice of cuisines, it offers a standard that other restaurants could learn from. Nice environment overlooking the Apapa Sea Port form Victoria Island. Diners have an opportunity to see large ships sail while dinning. Since it faces the Atlantic ocean waters, it would be lovely if more seafood could be inculcated in the menu.

I have a bit of a bias. I tend to think that hotel restaurants lack the flavor and ambiance I tend to look for when I go to a restaurant. That, and I tend to think they are overpriced for what you usually get. This concept fell on its face hard when I had dinner last night downstairs. Everything from... More

This Hotel has a great terrace and lunches on the terrace with the beautiful seaviews is fantastic as there are very few places to go in Lagos that give you this lovely outdoor experience. The gardens are beautiful and green and the terrace has fans that are on and help with the heat. You also get a beautiful breeze which... More

In the last few months, Federal Palace has introduced a special themed dinner on the last Saturday of the month, with a live jazz performance. While the music is not strictly jazz, the vocalist is really good, and obliges you with your choice of songs (if she knows them!). The trumpet player is excellent, and both musicians move around the... More

Federal Palace has the best view of the ocean. Their food is great and drinks are also reasonably priced. Their business centre served me well while I was in Lagos and I'd definitely go back when I visit this year.

Our office hosted a lunch reception this past weekend for a small group of 20 people at the Explorers Restaurant in Federal Palace Hotel and we had a wonderful experience! The hotel grounds are beautifully maintained and the banquet facilities are excellent. All of the staff members were terrific. In particular, Nena Okeke, the events coordinator ensured that all our... More

Ate here early evening after a buusiness meeting. Strongly navigated to the buffet rather than the a la carte by the waiter but thats not so unusual in a place like this. Pretty good selection and not at all busy at 19.00 in what is a large and spacious resturant with a view over the gardens to the lagoon, including... More

Ate here during a workshop at the hotel. Was impressed with the food quality, variety and general facilities at the restaurant. Would recommend as somewhere to visit if you have the chance.

For a hotel as beautiful as the Federal Palace, the buffet lunch was a huge disappointment as options were very limited. Menu consisted of mainly Nigerian dishes with just a few continental offerings. This must obviously be the reason why it's buffet lunch is cheaper than other hotels of it's cadre. The good thing though was that most of the... More
