South is a little bit of an acquired taste. It’s one of pricier places in Lagos and that comes with heightened expectations. When looked at with proper context, however, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the best restaurants in Lagos right now. The French, in particular, is literally in a class of it's own and is hands down the best burger in Lagos

    With Lagos restaurants, it’s easy to forgive if the food isn’t up to par. All the good stuff is imported and importing is expensive. Messing up the vibe, however, is unforgivable and the vibe at Backyard is just perfect. Oh, the food is good too. The steak sandwich is the closest to a Philly Cheesesteak you’ll get in Lagos

    La Verandah

    Verandah is not new to this list so you might be surprised why it's still here. The answer is that they are amazingly consistently. You can visit multiple times and still discover new delicious things on their menu.

    Peppercorn avenue

    Peppercorn gives you a taste of Thailand and India in one ambitious menu. Can’t fault their ambition, but the Thai isn’t anything to write home about beyond the appetizers. The Indian, however, is absolutely excellent and is perhaps the finest you’ll find in the city beyond the dingier spots.

    Nok garden

    Open only in the evening, Nok Garden is our favorite place in Lagos. Nok, itself, is great but the Garden menu absolutely blows it out of the water. The tapas-style menu is perfect for what Nok is trying to pull off with the Garden and the cornbread, especially, is excellent.
