Restaurants for Different Occasions

Posted Thursday, 03 November 2022

Almost every day, week and month, there are constant memories we seek to create, and most of the time, we do this at restaurants. And for every occasion, we have that go-to spot. Here are a few of ours, and we’re almost certain, yours, too.

For Networking
If you’re looking to make new friends and create new circles, then you should visit El Padrino.
256 Etim Inyang Crescent, Victoria Island
t: 08097128682

For First Dates
First dates should be calm, and at the same time exciting, so you can talk and get to know each other, as well as have something entertaining to talk about when the conversation dies down. The View Rooftop has a perfect balance of both.

For Proposals
For the average Lagosian, proposals are usually a surprise event surrounded by family and friends. To achieve this, your go-to spot should have a space for your guests to wait while you get your partner to the venue, as well as a place to set the ‘proposal spot’. The Garden Ikoyi has this down pat!

For Payday/A Little Something Extra
‘Alert has dropped’ and you know you deserve every penny! To do something nice for yourself or a group of friends going out to celebrate payday, you want to pop a bottle or two and have a good time on a budget, then The Wine Lab is your spot.

For a Business Lunch 
The perfect setting for a business lunch is serene and spacious enough, so you’re far enough from the next table to have confidential conversations, and you can also have an impressive lunch to seal the deal. Rye Restaurant holds a high standard in this category.

For Live Matches 
Need a place to watch live matches in a chilled environment among fellow sports lovers like yourself? Then visit Cilantro. With their large bar surrounded by screens, you'll feel like you’re right there!

For Lunch with the Kids
Sometimes it is difficult going to nice restaurants with kids because they get bored easily and need activity. To have a nice day out with the kids, Cactus Restaurant has you covered with their well equipped playground to keep the kids entertained, while you watch from a distance having a relaxed lunch.
20/24 Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Victoria Island
t: 08027777666

For a Guys’ Hangout
For a lot of guys, a typical hangout scene is a bar or tavern that serves food and beer, where you can discuss a game with their friends and preferably watch it. And Rhapsody's is that spot.
176/194 Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja City Mall, Ikeja 
t: 08177777825

For a Solo Date
Solo dates, as seen in movies, are usually quiet with a book or your laptop. You can either get some work done, finish a good book or movie. You can’t go wrong at Moonshine Cafe.
7a Admiralty Road, Lekki Phase 1
t: 08159438309

Just Because
If you want to go out to eat just because you feel like, it should have one or all of three things: great food, price friendly and social. One spot that hits all the notes for us is Food Shack.
32 Ologun Agbaje Street, Victoria Island
