This is a bar area in the Four Points Hotel where food is also served. The name is presumably for the small indoor bar but the reason for going is the outside space which is nice from dusk onwards. It doesn't have much of a view from the second floor but it's a nice place to sit and I've been there as a couple, with friends and business groups.

The staff are nice and helpful but service can be slow (especially food). There is a cocktail list and a limited range of food. Some nice barbecue grilled suya, prawns and fish are the best options. Burgers are also ok.

Thank Segaria226

I usually take pictures for my reviews, I have to apologize as this time I totally forgot. I took a picture of only an empty plate after we finished eating.

I hate to smoke standing up outside the hotel, so I tried to go to The office bar in the afternoon to discover it only opens only after 17:00. It is a nice place to sit outside and enjoy a breeze of fresh air after being locked up all day inside the hotel for meetings.

The Office is an open air bar that has garden furniture, comfortable to sit and relax. The greatest advantage The Office has; is the live BBQ station and they also serve Shisha/Hooka. If you are away from home and you are missing your hubly bubbly this is the place to be. The furniture is not very practical if you are there to eat. The tables are too low, but for drinking and Shisha smoking it is very comfortable.

We ordered grilled food from the BBQ. I ordered a Sirloin Steak medium well, I wanted to make sure there is no blood in it but still moist. My work colleague selected a whole grilled fish. We also ordered two sides of French Fries.

My steak was perfectly cooked I couldn’t have asked for a better piece of cooked steak. The quality of the meat was so so… The steak itself gets a 5.5/10 but the cooking gets a 10/10. Unfortunately the Chef wasn’t as successful with the fish. I don’t know what to say?! It seemed as if the Chef grilled the fish on one side and forgot to flip it to the other side. Fish arrived cooked on one side but still raw on the other?!!! Not sure if it was the lack of lights, or the chef was just tired and simply forgot. The fish was is a disappointing Zero. My work colleague was so hungry he ate the cooked half and left the other untouched. He compensated on the fires :) Strangely enough my fries were warm and crunchy while the fries on his plate were cold and soggy?! I can’t explain that? I think it was Karma LOL!!!

Compared to the rest of the Hotel, The Office Bar is understaffed. One waiter can’t cover the service on his own. So I can’t say that the service is bad, this guy was way over stretched. There was 3 waiters in the Adrenaline Bar (less than one third the size of The Office) while in The Office Bar we had just one waiter. The Chef had to attend the BBQ and wait tables as well?!!! So maybe this was not the best day to review The Office and I would definitely give it another chance.

Second floor of the four points Sheraton on Victoria Island. Looks like a hip roof top (second floor roof) but the food is quite good. They have a chef that BBQ's on the roof as well, good food.

First, let me start off by stating that this place provides the best chicken suya in town. You'll th e live jazz band, the fresh food and 'well-poured' cocktails. I ALWAYS have a good time when I go. Its a place you can go for couples, friends, large group clebration, or office unwinding. The breeze will lull you to relaxation.

I have been to this hotel several times for many different reasons, Sunday Buffet, Social meeting etc. More recently I have been going to have meetings in the lounge or to pass time until I have to go for other meetings.

I do not drink coffee or tea very often so whenever I go out I like to try a hot chocolate. This has become a bit of an obsession of mine to find the best hot chocolate in Lagos (also my country of birth). When i tasted their hot chocolate I knew I had found it.

On price I can buy a hot chocolate and a pastry for N1,100 where's the wheatbaker for only a hot chocolate is N1,300 which doesn't taste good as it is appears like it is just milk with a dashing of cocoa. So the price is excellent in my comparison.

My only comment would be that if the WIFI was free then I would stay there much longer and also order lunch but there is only so much work you can get done on your ipad.

The staff still need to have a bit more customer service training (was my complaint a few years ago) but have improved. Always try and make yourself known to the staff when you come into the lounge because they won't see you or will take forever to come and serve you.
