Ask Eat.Drink.Lagos XVI
NOSA: All Lekki bars have "Lekki prices" so I'm not sure which one I'd recommend. Maybe Sailors, but their prices have brain touch too. I'd say you cross the toll to V/I and stop by Pat's Bar. The prices are pretty decent and it feels like a bar, not a lounge.
FOLLY: It's actually terrible. With the exception of the waterside, there's really nowhere you can get a decently priced beer or cocktail in Lekki. It's such a shame. Please correct me if I'm wrong in the comments.
NOSA: So we actually do have a rating system. It's pretty new so we haven't really implemented it across all reviews.
FOLLY: We know this isn't really the typical ask question, and we'd normally just respond to this type of email privately, but we realized we had never officially introduced the rating system so here it is.
NOSA: By design, it isn't a numerical rating system. While a numerical rating system will be easier to digest, we feel it will be very problematic. For instance, say we gave RSVP a perfect score. A new place opens up that's significantly better than RSVP. That new place has come in a disrupted our whole thing.
What we have chose to do, however, is answer one simple question - did we like it. In this situation, a better restaurant may pop up but it won't wreck our system. The new restaurant doesn't mean we like RSVP less.
FOLLY: At the same time if we liked a restaurant and so used the relevant picture to rate it and someone comes along to say they hate the restaurant, our rating system to a reasonable degree reflects the subjectivity that's attached.
