Perfect for date night and any intimate dinner, Talindo is also serves, easily, the best steak in Lagos. Make sure you get brownie for dessert. Very important.

    Ikeja desperately deserved an upmarket option and in CUT, prayers have been answered. The prices might put you off a bit, butthe wine selection makes it all worth it.

    This charming little restaurants proves that there is so much more to Apapa than trailers and traffic. It’s arguably the only authentic Thai restaurant in Lagos and since Bangkok has gone belly up, it is easily the best one there is. It’s absolutely worth the not so scenic drive to Apapa and we hope they never, ever change.

    Shiro has one of the most gorgeous restaurant interiors in Lagos right now with the most expensive entree to boot. The wagyu costs a pretty penny, but you have to try it.

    HSE Gourmet

    Lekki is going through some sort of dining revolution. The old restaurants that exist solely for the purpose of laundering money are on their way out and proper restaurants are on their way in. HSE Gourmet Cafe is one of the latter. Their menu has a lot of Asian influences but there's also a ridiculously good Shrimp Po Boy and spiked iced teas that you should probably try out. HSE Gourmet is a Lekki must-eat.
