I guess I went there on a good day. The cheesy garlic bread was fresh & delicious. The rice was delicious but the lamb was less meat, more congealed fat. The apple pie crust was dry, ice cream delicious. I give them a five-star for service; having worked in the hospitality trade, I know how important service with a smile is.

Awesome place....their turkey entree was a bit tough too. Their drinks? Yum. If you love belly-filling food; you'll love IL Due

I had the pleasure of dinning out at Tarragon on the last day of the Mastercard Restaurant week. The wait staff were so polite and made sure I was comfortable. The homemade Brioche was like a piece of heavenly cloud in my mouth and paired with the herb and garlic butter made me want to not stop eating it! (I was offered more and I sheepishly had to decline). For starters I had the most delicious and creamy tomato soup (garnished with fired basil), the chef informed me that the tomatoes and peppers were roasted which gave it a slightly smoky flavor. For mains I had the steak fillet (medium rare). It turned out melt in your mouth delicious with a lovely char. This was paired with a delicious chilled glass of Douglas Green sweet red. Just when I thought my palate couldn't take any more pleasure, I finished the evening with an apricot lava cake with creme anglaise topped with a slice of candied orange. The bitterness of the orange wonderfully offset the sweetness of the divine creme anglaise. I had rather high expectations going in and was pleased to have those expectations exceeded. Will be back soon to try out more from the menu.

Convinced my colleagues to visit for MasterCard week. On getting there we found out we were the only ones there. I really don't know how to feel about empty restaurants because it could be one of two things, either your food is terrible or you're one of those if you know, you know restaurants. Either way , an empty space can never be good news. On to why we were there. We all got food from the MasterCard menu. Come to find out that 80% of the food on each course they did not have. This was hilarious because 1. I convinced my colleagues to come here based off their menu. 2. The waiter ( who was extremely nice, had the worst job of having to tell us so and so was not available). Extremely disappointing. At least if your restaurant is empty that means you should have ALL the food. Anyways, I had the cheesy garlic bread for my starter. Another hilarious thing because this was main sized. By the time I was done , I was through with dinner mentally. But I had to go on. For my main I had lamb with coconut rice. A bit meh for me. The rice was bland and the lamb was well, lamb. No other way to describe it other than it was dry. For my dessert I had waffles and cream. Only thing I was a fan of through out the night was the waffles . Thy were soft and warm and delicious. Shame I was filled up at that point and couldn't get through half of it. SHAME. The disaster in this course however was the ice cream. On getting there they had mentioned thy had no ice cream. We were all collectively dissapointed and I guess mr nice waiter sensed that so he went to dig out month old supreme Ice cream from the bottom of the freezer. Thing was more or less ice with milk. Don't know how else to describe it other than it was supreme ice cream going bad and it spoilt my dessert. Could have done without it. Will I be going here again? No. Unless somebody wants to treat me then maybe, just maybe .

Where do I start. I've been to bottles before but decided to try it again for MasterCard week. Dodgy location for a restaurant but what is new in lagos. I noted however that they've changed their menu. I saw this and thought the food must have stepped up a notch. I had a Mexicana cocktail (i think. I will get to this later). For my starter I had the teriyaki wings. I wonder why this is on a Mexican menu though or maybe I'm confused. Anyways I saw it and thought, anything teriyaki sign me up. Unfortunately these were very dry and I was forced to pack it up. Next I had the beef fajita. Another dissapointment as the beef was quite dry and I get the feeling it had been lying in the fridge somewhere for a week. I could be wrong tho but I didn't even get halfway through the main which is surprising for me. For my desert I got the brownie as they didn't have anything else on the menu. Let me just add that I hate brownies but had to get it. What came out was not a brownie though. More like a crepe/ chocolate / fudge/ nut get up. When I asked to clarify the waitress told me it was a brownie so I guess it was a brownie. Didn't finish that as well as it was quite overwhelming. To be honest if I'm ever visiting bottles again it would be just because. The cocktail I got ended up being water and something else. A 3/10. Average experience for me

I'm going to start off this review a bit biased because bistro 7 is one of my favorite restaurants in Lagos. I visited again for MasterCard week 2016 and it stays on my fave list. Once you get accustomed to its hidden location you'll be fine. I went to Bistro 7 with my sister. Let me just point out that we were the only ones at the restaurant on getting there (second time in a row). This made it better though as we could enjoy our meal in quiet. My sister ordered from the standard menu while I ordered from the MasterCard menu. I had the chicken suya goujon for my starter. This was nice BUT I get the feeling the suya spice used isn't really suya spice, as I kept wolfing the goujon down without asking for water. For my main I had the seafood pasta. I asked for the seafood in mine to be switched out for chicken, which thy agreed to - extra points. Here comes the tricky part. My sister had the penne vodka for her main and I can bet you we were served the exact same thing. I've experienced this countless times in Lagos restaurants and will say it is extremely disappointing. You can't name two different dishes and then serve the same thing but on different plates. I was so disappointed in this but this is where my bias kicks in as I will give them a pass for the pasta not tasking like 'spag and stew'. Bonus points for the garlic bread. Though a bit hard, it was delicious. Bonus points for the complimentary bread served before starters as well. Those were buttery and delicious! And kept our mouths busy while waiting for desert. For desert I got the banana crepe which they did not have at the time -1 , so I had to get their sponge cake. I was not looking forward to this as I think sponge cake is a bit basic to go and try at a restaurant. I was wrong though as the sponge cake was warm, sweet and spongy. It also came with caramel sauce which I love. All in all my experience here has been consistent. I would go here again when I'm trying to avoid dissapointment.

I really and throughly enjoyed the service here. The staff were extremely friendly. From the receptionist, to the manager. The waiter was also an absolute delight. Foodwise- The mash was a bit lumpy but tasted ok. The Chicken with lemon butter sauce was nice enough and the chapman tasted like one you could get anywhere so not bad but not great. For dessert, the ice cream was nice but the brownie wasn't great. However i still enjoyed my experience and will definitely go back.

Dining at La spiga was a terrible experience. The Hoisin beef salad was horrid, they had smothered the beef in way too much hoisin sauce so it was way too sweet. There were huge chunks of onions and tomatoes that the chef couldn't even be bothered to chop into pieces. Literally just sliced off a portion of the onions and tomatoes and dumped it into the bowl. It was awful. The main meal was a continuation of the crap presented as a starter. The Jollof rice was tasteless (pilau rice indeed), the plantain was at least ok even though it arrived cold. The menu mentioned that the meal would come with peppered chicken but somehow arrived with goat meat and it was horrid. The waiter just said "sorry i should have asked". Meanwhile the only option was peppered chicken so asked me what exactly? Pathetic. Finally for dessert, nothing was available except ice cream and even that should have had three different flavours and instead came with two. Service was also poor because I asked for the bill a few times and 30 minutes later we had to walk to the bar to settle the bill there. I will definitely not be going back to La Spiga for anything. Save your money. In Simon Cowell's words, "It's a no from me".
