    The white-themed space was definitely what brought me back here, but this time with my friend @ayo_oje, after once visiting on a closed day, dang!
    .
    While looking through the menu, it was a bunch of long unfamiliar names. I figured i had to play it safe this time, even if i almost had the ‘Fettucine El Ragu’.
    .
    WHAT I EVENTUALLY HAD:
    - Age of Innocence (a non-alcoholic cocktail) N3,000; and
    - Cheese cake N3,100
    .
    while @ayo_oje had the bitter sweet (a signature cocktail) N3,500
    .
    VERDICT:
    Age of Innocence- 9/10
    With a blend of Orange, pineapple, Kirsch & Banana, i already knew what to expect. And when it was served, it was all I hoped it will be. Sweet, sweet & juicy.
    .
    Cheese cake- 7/10.
    I was going to have the ‘Fettucine El Ragu’, which is basically pasta with some meat sauce, but the sauce was currently out of stock. So, i had to settle for the cheese cake for desserts, knowing fully well I’m not a fan of cheese after my ‘meh’ experience with the mac & cheese @south_social but still hoping for the best, cause bad experiences can’t hold you back.
    .
    In all honesty, it was better than i imagined it to be, both in the presentation & in the taste. And for the first time in forever, i decided to eat the leaf that accompanied my order, after confirming it was ‘mint leaf’ anyway, and I’m glad i didn’t regret that decision. I also loved that it was cold & creamy with a splash of berry juice around it.
    .
    THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
    - The menu is somewhat on the pricey end.
    - They are usually closed on Mondays; and
    - The outdoor space which has a bar & a pool is only accessible from 5pm.
    .
    AMBIENCE:
    It is a white-themed space with splashes of greens, and even though it’s very peaceful, serene & beautiful, it was a hostile reception - as it seemed like the waiters & the white manager were only after the bags and not necessarily a great customer relationship that could lead to a memorable/long lasting experience as compared to places like @thehouselagos & @sabor.lagos
    .
    If I ever revisit, it would be for my pasta. hopefully, they would now have the sauce restocked. ❤️

  • The special fried rice from marcopolo is life but this shrimp sauce can get you a girlfriend, and empty your account all at once 😍😍 The price is about average for a regular Chinese restaurant, 7-10k will comfortably feed one including a drink .

    The ambience is 💯! The building on admiralty way even has a seaside view 😍

    It’s a 10/10 for me and I’m definitely going back a lotttt of times more.
