Federal Palace has the best view of the ocean. Their food is great and drinks are also reasonably priced. Their business centre served me well while I was in Lagos and I'd definitely go back when I visit this year.

I doubt very much if the hotel will permit bringing in a cake except for an exclusive booking of the restaurant.
Planning to come in for lunch tomorrow with three friends,when does the buffet start and End. How much should we be looking at for a good meal. Thanks
