One of the best things about Lagos is that there are always new spots cropping up on the scene. Who doesn’t love a new restaurant with a fresh new experience? Our foodie is test driving restaurants all around the city and next up: La Veranda.

Here is what you need to know about La Veranda

Where is it?

La Veranda is on a cute terrace in The Blow Fish Hotel No. 17, Oju Olobun Street, Off Idejo Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Where should I sit?

You have the option of sitting on the terrace where you get a nice view of the street, and of the hotel poolside. At night it is very pretty when it’s lit up.

What is the food like?

As you’d expect of an Italian Restaurant they have an extensive menu of pastas and pizzas, plus some other Italian inspired niceties. We went for their Spaghetti Carbonara, and it was really good. Our dish came with slices of toasted bread and a side of pate and chilli sauce.

You know that feeling when the conversation stops and all you can hear is slurping of pasta, clanking of forks and silence. Yup! that was us

How about drinks?

You’ll find the usual wines, juices and of course chapman

How much is it going to cost me?

Pasta- 4,900 NGN

Chapman – 1,500 NGN

Overall thoughts?


The Blowfish is such a lovely space with a relaxing atmosphere and you get those exact vibes at La Veranda and the food was really good as well.


Who should I be going with?

Anyone and Everyone
