    Though it’s a little bit hard to find, The Garden is worth tracking down as a great English-African restaurant in Riverplate Park. The restaurant is actually located directly off of Admadu Bello Way on the south bound side just south of Ademola Adetokunbo Crescent. Enter through the Riverplate Park gate and the restaurant is immediately on your right; there are signs both on the street and just inside of the gate.

    Visitors come to the Garden primarily for the outdoor seating and the ambiance. There are tiers of seats around an excellently manicured central yard full of ornamental flora and the main thatch-roofed building has a small indoor space in case the heat or rain is too unbearable. From the veranda on the main building or the upper tiers of the terrace there’s also a great view of the national mosque. This is also probably the most comfortable part of the restaurant, with nice cushioned benches surrounding square wooden tables. One gets the feeling that a late-night poker game might be well-suited for these seats.

    For the kids there are also playground toys and a rabbit pen on the corner of the property.
    The Garden Bar offers a spectrum of continental dishes from Nigerian standards to pasta to grilled chicken and fish (all from around 2000 Naira) but their main draw is their pizzas. With nearly two dozen pizzas on the menu there is an option for almost any taste, with thin crispy pies delivered on thick wooden cutting boards. Two pizzas are enough for three people, and none of them cost more than N 3000.

    The restaurant is fairly popular with expatriates, many of whom come here later in the evening for a few drinks or a social event. Most beers cost around N 600 while mixed drinks can cost up to N 2000.
