The chef definitely knows what his role is, the menu is neatly arranged and has plenty of variety to choose from. Food is very good and tasty food. The portions served are so large for one person so sharing is advised.

Planted in Victoria Island, this restaurant has established itself as a must go restaurant in Lagos. It has a rooftop sit-out, giving you the choice to eat in the open.

-The Bungalow Restaurant

It is difficult to label Bungalow Restaurant as any one thing – it looks like a sports bar with lots of TV screens, has sports bar type of food as well, but also has high-end fine cuisine.

The service is friendly and the menu comes on an iPad. There are so many choices- they serve from continental food to Mexican, Asian and even pizzas are on the list.

You could literally visit Bungalows every day of the week and enjoy a great atmosphere, superb food and excellent service! In fact, I think there are some ExPats that do exactly that!


top restaurants in lagosThis is easily the best Sushi restaurant in Lagos. This restaurant can compete with any Japanese Restaurant anywhere.

Izanagi is actually one of my favourite restaurants. Interesting menu, nice ambience, beautiful decor, good for intimate dinner dates. Food is consistently excellent and the service is notably better than in many other restaurants in the city.

It isn’t cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but it is well worth the effort of visiting and it does come as quite a shock having such a high-quality meal in Lagos where you might not expect it.

So, If you are ever in Lagos and miss the taste of world-class sushi, you have to go to Izanagi.
