This can mean one of two things in Lagos, either shoddy customer service with unapologetic shrugging when told something isn't available or attentive staff and a pleasant experience. Luckily, this restaurant was...More

Italian food is sacred and Italian culture revolves around the kitchen and more importantly the food at La Veranda where every dish is crafted with such care and thought. La Veranda is an elegant and cozy restaurant, overlooking the relaxing pool area at the Blowfish Hotel. It serves real Italian food in a bright and quirky ambiance with a breeze of Italian charm. No expense has been spared in La Veranda to ensure that only the finest ingredients are used. From the fresh tomatoes in our homemade tomato sauce to the finely sliced Beef Carpacio di ruccola and our wooden oven succulent pizzas, all our ingredients are carefully selected and imported to give you the best Italian culinary experience in Lagos. We have both indoor and outdoor seating. In addition to pasta and pizza, our menu also offers steak, chicken and salads. Eat-in, take-out and delivery are all available options to suit your needs
