Excellent food and drink at very reasonable prices. Locally caught fresh fish always available don't look at the menu ask those serving for a recommendation, never been disappointed yet. Always busy but wait it's worth it if you like good food. Very friendly service, can't fault to restaurant. Will go again, hopefully, in years to come.

Five of us took a chance without booking and managed to get in. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Food and drink was excellent and not too expensive with fish being a speciality.

So, if you want fine dining or fancy stuff go somewhere else. If you want a large chunk of fish (or meat, according to the chap next to me) cooked to perfection and served simply (best boiled potatoes I've had in years) this place is worth it. Very short wait at the door (under 5 minutes). Sadly no tuna tonight,... More

Tuna steak waz off; seemed like they tried to disguise it with excess salt. Ate 4 or 5 bites, spent all night and all next day in the bathroom.

Highly recommend this restaurant. Couldn't fault any of the food we had. The tuna steaks melted and the salmon was incredible. By far the best place in Lagos

If ever a restaurant sticks to what it does well then this is it. Very fresh fish, grilled and served simply - that's what you get with very large portions for good measure. We visited twice in a week. No bookings and a queue outside all evening. The fish is fresh, cooked to order and the restaurant is busy and... More

I'd done my restaurant research before we headed in to explore Lagos with Adega Tipica A Forja starred on our Google map. There's nothing worse than having hunger sneak up on you, and in desperation you settle for a mediocre meal at best. So it was fortuitous that A Forja just happened to be off the little square we were... More
