Below are some of the best restaurants Lagos has to offer
Shiro Bar & Restaurant
Shiro, or castle in Japanese, is a dramatic soaring space that immediately captures the imagination and stretches the senses. The towering interior is finished in a unique combination of natural stone, woods, slate, leather, bamboo and velvet complemented by shimmering lotus pools, soft furniture and subtle lighting. The scale is impressive but so is the attention to detail. Raw smoky finishes combine with soft furnishings in a colour palate ranging from rust and caramel to rose.
