Because Eat.Drink.Lagos is for the people, we've complied a little guide to help you navigate the mess that is Valentine's Day in Lagos.
For the set menu
Talindo Steak House
Talindo is offering a 4-course dinner with a bottle of red or white wine. You can swap out the wine for a bottle of water and two soft drinks or chapman, if alcohol is not your vibe. That's pretty thoughtful because most restaurants won't give you that option, they tend to assume that Valentine's is when every one wants to drink wine/champagne.
At 45k/couple (tax inclusive), this is a pretty decent deal. Especially if you get paid a lot more than I do. Talindo will be running the same menu at the Steak House and at Rooftop so finding a table shouldn't be hard.
To reserve, call
Talindo - +234 815 153 0000
Rooftop - +234 815 154 0000
For the mainland
CUT @ Radisson Blu
The hotel might have changed ownership, but CUT is still the classiest restaurant on the mainland. Their Valentine's Day offering isn't too shabby either.
And you can always "extend the pleasure" and stay the night.
For the music
NOK by Alará
NOK is doing something a little different for Valentine’s Day. There's the standard dinner: 3-course spread at - 50k per couple, but couples are also invited for an intimate Zouk Love dance experience at the garden.
