Circa Lagos – Worth the hype?

There’s a popular saying about how time waits for no man. Have you ever wondered the patience levels it has for women? Non existent!

So it was that on this particular day, Titi and I were bored and wanted somewhere to pass time and have fun. Somewhere close with good scenery and food – also fit for our musings without distractions.

And so we prepared but then, it seems every time we want to do something together in Lagos, the weather decides to f*ck shit up! Because down came the rain. See, I’m not even sure why it’s raining in March. 🤷🏾‍♀ Anyway, we weathered the storm (see what I did there?) and still headed out. The focus was obviously on a place with a nice indoor ambience and proximity to the house.

We decided on Circa Lagos. We’d heard a lot about this place and it was fun to finally be here

There is a “Circa non pareil” located on Admiralty road. This is more of a bar I think. Circa Lagos is located at No 2 Kola Adeyina Close, Lekki phase 1.

On getting there, we saw the famous wall and decided to have a mini photoshoot. The security guy on duty politely agreed to take pictures of us. He was even open to corrections as regards the positioning of the camera. This was already a good sign as far as we were concerned.

After our photoshoot, we entered the restaurant and noticed it’s a small space compared to most restaurants in Lagos but it has that minimalist vibe which we absolutely love.

We loved that It wasn’t so crowded as well maybe because we visited on a week day.

We came there to work and they had free WiFi. So it can actually double as a quick work space if you’re a creative. Obviously we were loving it but the most important thing for me is the food. It’s not ambience I came to eat dears.

We quickly scanned through the menu and placed our order. I ordered Fish and fries (because I’ve learnt that in Lagos I’d rather be safe than sorry) with a strawberry margarita. Titi ordered some sort of seafood Alfredo pasta with a virgin Pina colada.

The waitresses were polite and indulged our numerous requests to take pictures of us while we waited for our food. We didn’t have to wait too long before the food arrived and the food was so delicious. The portions were not bad either. I don’t eat large portions but I was full and still had some to take home with me. I wasn’t so impressed with the cocktail – maybe because the week before I had the same cocktail at Crossroads and it was heavenly but I wasn’t so bothered because the food made up for it.

The budget for having a decent meal here is approx. 10k per person.

I got at least 3 Instagram messages from random people saying they really love the restaurant and the food there. So they are definitely doing something right.

So if you’re looking for a cute , intimate restaurant for lunch or dinner alone or with friends in Lekki, then Circa Lagos is the place for you.

You can follow us on Instagram for more pictures because like I said we had a mini photoshoot and you must see everything.

Location – With google maps you should easily locate it. However it does not look like a restaurant from outside so you might think you’re entering someone’s house.

Budget – At least 10k per person

Ambience – 👍👍👍👍

Food – 🤙🤙🤙🤙.5

customer service – 👍👍👍👍👍

I hope you enjoyed reading this review. Have you been to Circa Lagos? Will you revisit ?

  1. I was in Circa last November and I quite liked it. It was empty and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We had a burger and pasta. Food seemed alright, but cute space and helpful staff too!
