Book in advance ubless you want to wait one hour to have a table. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. They know the drill and you can see it from the moment they serve you. We ordered an octopus dish and a duck one....The food melted in your mouth and when we wanted them to prepare the leftovers duck for takeaway, they gave us sides to go with it at the same time.More

Excellent meal - something different to all the other restaurants around. We tried the smoked cod fish for starters and garlic and chilli prawns - beautiful! All 4 of our main courses were excellent and beautifully presented. I had the risotto - you should know...this is more like a creamy rice pudding than a risotto - but tasty all the same- just a little rich with all the cream maybe? The duck was very pink (maybe a little undercooked?) - we like it that way but many wouldn't. Try it here- a notch above other places.More

We had the pleasure of visiting this lovely restaurant in August 2021. The environment is very friendly, and you can choose either outdoor or indoor seating (we went with indoor since it’s usually windy in the evening). The service was very good, the waiters are...very friendly, polite and helpful. The food was outstanding, hands down the best meal we’ve had during our stay in Lagos. We got the beef cheeks and the duck breast. The beef cheeks were tender and succulent, it’s clear that the meat is q very high quality meat and the delicious sauce ties it all up together. The duck breast was medium rare done (so don’t forget to ask for your own preference - but the waiter told us this), flavorful and the sides (carrot purée and a roasted potato) were also very tasty. I would recommend everyone to visit this place if you’re staying in Lagos, you are definitely getting your money’s worth.More

Returned to this restaurant again this year following a couple of visits last summer . Found the same staff serving excellent wine, but sadly this year the food left a lot to be desired. The covers were the best part of the meal. Olives, mushrooms...and chorizo butter with fresh bread. The garlic prawn starter was nice. My main of cod loin was served with a bed of hummus, plus a bed of spicy chickpeas which was frankly too stodgy and lacked any delicacy whatsoever. The cod was bony and slightly undercooked. My spouse had steak which he enjoyed , but again it lacked sophistication and presentation was basic. Generally the location and ambience is good here. The wine selection is top class and the waiters knowledgeable and articulate. Food needs to measure up.More

Corvina was a small portion but a big price at 24 Euro. Not hot and little else on the plate. My partners beef cheeks were overcooked and only one piece edible. Lack of atmosphere Totally unimpressed for what should have been a special night out.More

Sitting in the street with a lot of tourists passing bye, I could only look at my dish. So well done and tastefull. And the wine from the Algarve, Paxá, was great as well. A hidden treasure in busy streets of Lagos.
