The schizophrenic nature of many Nigerian restaurants is probably best displayed at Lagoon, a Victoria Island restaurant next to the Radisson Blu and facing Lagos Island. But rather than cram a dozen different cuisines into one single restaurant, the owners of Lagoon split the property into three restaurants with marginally distinctive themes.
On the west side of the property, Churrasco serves Brazilian food in the same meat-on-a-stick style that many western restaurants have adopted. The venue resides in a raised, circular building with a thatched roof, straw-woven chairs and palm trees painted on the inside ceiling.
Seaside, the open restaurant in the center of the property, edges right up to the side of the lagoon and serves Indian, Chinese and continental (meaning “all of the above”) dishes. This is also where the main kitchen is.
East of Lagoon, Fusion serves Lebanese and Japanese fare in a clean, neon-lit dining room.
Among all of the properties, Seaside seems to be the most popular with visitors. Tables line the perimeter of the restaurant and overlook the lagoon, and groups of friends wander happily from table to table. I’m told that Seaside is popular with the local twenty-something aristocracy on Friday night, and even on the Tuesday night during which I was visiting, the floor was quite crowded.
That scene and the location seem to be the primary draw to Lagoon; though the grilled chicken that I ordered was decent, it wasn’t exceptional and the few drinks that I ordered were fairly expensive at N 2000. Still, the atmosphere here is among the best in the city and with the right dinner selection the package could be excellent.
Visitors from the Radisson Blu need only walk a few hundred feet west to reach Lagoon. For those commuting by car or taxi, giving directions to the hotel will also suffice in lieu of exact coordinates.
