The Bistro offers a relaxed, almost colonial setting that works well for small groups and intimate dinners. Decor is tastefully understated with Parisian cafe prints, marble counter tops and a stained glass window inlaid into the ceiling. In one corner a curved elegant staircase gives access to rooms above whilst a piano is tucked discretely along one wall.
The menu is truly international, and the local specialties elicited a very positive response from nearby Nigerian diners. For the western palate there are a range of burgers, soups, salads and bar snacks alongside a grill menu of imported steaks and seafood.
Staff are friendly but almost too relaxed, and may require a little prompting for menus or drink service. Once you’ve been able to order though, the kitchen is snappy. As with everywhere in Lagos it isn’t cheap with a kebab and drink coming in for N5500, but there are some cheaper option amongst the bar snacks menu, with a club sandwich coming in for N2500. It’s worth noting the range of wines and spirits here with 12 and 15yr old Glen Fiddich for the whisky lovers, and a Pomerol and a St Emillion topping a reasonable wine list.
It’s certainly not a party venue, but for those looking for an intimate dinner or a quiet spot to do business over a bite to eat it works well. There is also a kid’s menu so if you have family visiting it’s a great option away from the hustle of Victoria Island.
Note: As this bistro is tucked away behind the Elion House Hotel (based in the Dolphin extension off Osborne Street), it can be a little hard to find.
