Visited bungalows with high expectations going by general opinion and recommendations. Wasn't satisfied at all. First the outside; parking space is limited and narrow. A drunken sailor stands the chances of driving into the canal (dirty dirty dirty environment). Reception was ok. Ditto for the staff. They were polite and helpful. The place is in sections to cater for smokers. Customers were largely foreigners though it might have been due to the time I visited. Food is kinda pricey and more inclined towards continental and foreign dishes (not that I mind) though there is a Nigerian section in the electronic menu (cool stuff). Soft music, good for the palates. Ordered seafood pasta based on the recommendation of the waiter. Asked for no cheese but when it came there was cheese. Furthermore there was little or no seafood mostly macaroni (could have done better at home). Anyway the waiter graciously agreed to change my order to spaghetti bolognaise. When it arrived it was brought by hand (not in a tray) in a drab plate (see in picture)and when I asked was told that is the way they serve food (with no tray). The food was quite ordinary (). Other than that experience it seemed ok. The bar is well stocked and splendid. Will I give it another shotmaybe.

Cactus

Reviewed By asianink - Lagos, Nigeria

Cactus is right around the corner from the hotel we are residing at. They serve local, continental (American), Lebanese, pasta and pizza. They have a nice bakery and also offers ice cream. Sundays you can hear all the children playing outside at their children's playground. I like the "pepper soup with goat" and the "spicy chicken". The prices are pretty reasonable for the meal that get. Take away is readily available as well as Delivery.

The food is always nice and fresh however the service isn't wonderful but the food is worth the wait, not a place to visit if your are extremely hungry or impatient.
One of my favorite restaurants in Lagos till date and my favorite meal is always the fried rice fiesta/special. The environment is clean and the food is not so pricey.

Reviewed By Laulo F

Visited the restaurant yesterday with my husband and our two kids. We had the seafood soup, bruschetta, the Lasagna al Forno, a pizza and the ricotta and spinach ravioli. Everything was delicious and served piping hot! No dish let us down. And the portions were VERY generous. I can't say enough about the food. The pizza we were served wasn't exactly how we had ordered it, but a fresh one was made before we even suggested it. That is very unusual in Lagos. 5 stars for food, two thumbs up for service. We'll definitely be back!
