The food was nice and fresh all the time and so many to choose from; That is what they called Buffet.

The rating of this hotel should not be 5 star. More like 3 or 4 star. The standard of their bedrooms fall below the 5 star hotel standard. The internet is unstable. Their food spread is limited and you easily get tired of the food.

Went for a family lunch on a Saturday, ordered juices, soup and sandwich. All this took more than 40mins to be served although the restaurant was nearly empty. Food is nothing special. 5 stars facilities but below average in terms of Service, even by Nigerian standards. Would not recommend eating there.

When you just have to have Sunday roast, chicken, beef or pork, Federal Palace does the best! The meat is cooked to perfection and although the vegetables are a bit disappointing, the salad bar and starters make up for it!

Federal palace 5 Star hotel is the best kept secret in Lagos, from the lounge to diverse expressions within the hotel, you know you are home away from home.

Since I was staying at the hotel and it is difficult to go out in the evening as a foreigner, I had a couple of dinners at this restaurant. Food was surprisingly good, as was the wine by the glass. Decent service. And very nice terrasse in the evening!
