Are you ready for THE burger experience in Lagos? If so, then look no further than Nah Nah Bah – one of the world’s best burger joints! With their delicious selection of mouthwatering burgers, a tiki style bar playing reggae tunes and a laid back vibe to boot – Their Toucan burger is officially considered one of the top 50 burgers in the world with grass fed ground beef (ground daily), bacon, seared pineapple, melted cheese, tomato onion lettuce and their secret sauce, we could see why.

Seven Hills

Don’t miss out on Seven Hills – a hidden gem! Located in the heart of old town, this Indian restaurant is one of our all-time favorites. Incredible food, generous portions, and fabulous service. You simply can’t miss the perfectly cooked Naan that’s crispy yet still a little doughy.
Don’t let the plain exterior fool you! We’ve eaten Indian all over the world and this is one of our favorites. Be prepared to wait for a table during peak hours, but trust us, it’s worth it.

Momo Express

We loved Momo Express – our first time trying Nepalese food and it didn’t disappoint! The prices were great for all the food they gave us. It’s a casual, local spot with lots of vegan options. You absolutely have to try their amazing noodles! It’s around 10 to 15 euros per person for dinner, and we will definitely be returning!

Just off the street, up a non-descript staircase, you’ll find Pie – known for its savory chicken pot pie and craft beer. Inside, you’ll enjoy indoor dining or take in the view from the outdoor terrace. And let’s not forget the star of the show – build your own pie! Choose from steak and onions, creamy chicken, classic fish, or a vegan/vegetarian option. Top it off with puff pastry or mashed potato. Be prepared for huge portions and excellent drinks, including a great selection of craft beers, wine, and cocktails.

Casa do Prego

Casa do Prego, a cool tapas restaurant, offers outdoor and indoor dining with great vibes, music, and super friendly staff. You can choose from tapas or larger entrees. Our top picks were the steak with Piri Piri sauce and the Tuna steak. We started with the sausage sampler which was a taste of several types of sausages, and the beet hummus, both were delicious! To finish off, try their decadent chocolate mousse for dessert, and you’ll go home fully satisfied. But, don’t forget to make a reservation or arrive early, as it’s quite popular and gets booked quickly. We waited almost an hour for a table, but it was totally worth the wait!

And get this – they have an all-you-can-eat option that’s too good to pass up! Believe us, you won’t find a better value for sushi anywhere. Plus, the quality is top-notch without emptying your pockets. Just note, it can get a bit busy at peak times.

Croissanteria 29

We chanced upon Croissanteria 29 while wandering Lagos’s streets — a gem hidden among the tourist restaurants. It’s affordable and delicious for breakfast or lunch. They offer croissants with a unique flair (not your traditional crispy french croissant), and their chicken croissant with special sauce is amazing. Try their traditional ham and cheese croissant with a cup of their fresh coffee or juice. Note that it’s cash only and closed on weekends. Grab a table or take it to go — we did the latter and enjoyed the croissant while exploring the streets. Croissanteria 29 is an awesome find!

What distinguishes Stavros the most is the majestic mountain, at the foot of which the beach lies. A short walk or drive from the beach offers the opportunity to climb up the mountain and enjoy the vistas from Cave Lera. This hike offers fabulous views, a well-marked path, and a somewhat challenging climb. Be sure to bring water and your camera!

Black and White

Check out Black and White, a chic, industrial-style coffee and breakfast bar that’ll give you serious Starbucks vibes. You’ll find all kinds of folks working on their laptops along the windows. But don’t worry about not snagging a seat, this place has an open and welcoming ambiance.

With free Wi-Fi available, you can sit and work as long as you like. The coffee and drinks are delicious, but the real standout here is the food. Every dish is beautifully plated and so yummy! We totally recommend the breakfast burrito, it’s one of our all-time favs. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, don’t pass up on the Eaton Mess – it’s pancakes with fresh berries and creamy goodness!

Ol Bastard’s

Ole Bastard’s is a relaxed and casual cocktail bar in the heart of old town. With pub vibes and cool decor, it’s the perfect spot for dinner. They serve up excellent fish and chips – golden, crispy, and served in a cute wooden box. The cod is light and fluffy, but don’t miss the delicious fish tacos. The prices are good, and it’s closed on Mondays. Don’t miss out!

Poke Lagos

Come check out Poke Lagos for some delicious Hawaiian food in Lagos! Enjoy fresh ingredients and generous portions in the shade of outdoor tables.
