This place has really simple, excellent fish. The entrees are huge so you can split them between two people. Relatively inexpensive place to get some wine and a great dinner in Lagos. Has a local feel compared to many touristy restaurants nearby. There are lineups...More

as far as I can remember there are no steps to access this restaurant, it's all on one floor. However it's filled with tables and little space to move around, so I would recommend to go when it's not very busy
