First off, I have to say for the prices and portions it should be closer to $$-$$$ dollar signs. The beer was relatively expensive but the wine was cheap (10€ a bottle) and was surprisingly amazing (I live near the Valpolicella region in Italy).

I have lived in Europe for 3 years and have been to 22+ European countries. I can say that this was, without a doubt, some of the tastiest food I’ve ever eaten. The Octopus with sweet potato was cooked to perfection! The goat cheese and Jamon were superior to any other I’ve tasted. Finally, the fried pork with paprika, perfect flavor and tenderness.

When it comes to great tasting food, this place wins at life. The portions are bigger in flavor than size but don’t let that turn you away. If I lived in Lagos, I would eat here once or more a week!

Although a little tricky to find from the main streets, this gem was well worth the effort. Cozy, homely atmosphere, colourful tables, open kitchen and friendly staff make it a very unique dining experience.
Tapas dishes are the order of the day, all fresh made with an excellent standard of ingredients. Had the meat and cheese platter to start, followed by the Moroccan chickpeas, the blackened Angus beef and the Pork & chorizo dish. All were superb. Desserts and wine choices also good. Would highly recommend.
Probably best booking as can get very busy.
