We had prawns and fried cheese for our 2 starters, chicken and the pasta. All the food was tasty but we loved the prawns best - fresh, tasty and value for money. The variety for main courses were...

Nice ambiance. Heavy traffic, seems like an in place to be in Lagos. Trendy looking people. Have a lovely poolside seating area as well but I sat indoors found it a bit warm outside. My steak was excellent, rare to perfection. The salad was not bad but not as great as the steak.

A hidden gem in Lagos. This little oasis in Lagos comes alive on a Thursday night to deliver an outstanding jazz event. The food is delightful, tickling the taste buds, with cuisine ranging from Italian, to Lebanese, through to Thai. Highly recommend this venue to true foodies, resident or passing through Lagos. Don't forget to order the Prawn spring rolls.

Nice choice between continental, Indian and Thai where in the continental menu some nice Lebanese dishes are available. Seems all freshly made however nothing that really stroke my palate. Staff is extremely friendly, as in 99.9% places here in NIgeria. Service is very good. The room is a bit cold as the AC is always at max and it unfortunately... More
