First Review by OlivierJacques

Lovely food from lively people! - Edit

I found this restaurant through happycow and thought I would give it a try! And I’m so happy I did! I had fries with veganaise as a starter and it was lovely! As a main dish I had the thai curry and the portion was perfect for me! It was full of fresh veggies and the taste was wonderful! Really happy that I came to this place! Extra plus: the people who own the place are really nice and friendly! Would recommand! 😊 Would have given 5 stars if it was possible, but happycow doesn’t allow it as it is not a full veggie restaurant..

Pros: Loads of fresh veggies, Great portions, Really cheap for the quality of food

Cons: Not all dishes available; outside tourist season

Amazing Food!! - Edit

I recently went on holiday to Lagos and I was worried about what vegan options there would be. I used the happycow app and managed to find a good few that catered for vegans but this was the best by miles!!

The Thai yellow curry was so good!! And the vegan chocolate brownie was to die for!!

Great service and the owners were lovely, would of given it a 5star rating but as it's not fully vegan I can't!

Very tasty - Edit

We had the french fries and falafel. It was very nice! Unfortunately they gave us Joghurt sauce instead of Vegannaise, but that was not auch a big deal.
In summary everyone can find fitting food, so just try it.

Wonderful experience! - Edit

I just ate lunch here, as I understood they do vegan & gluten free options which is what I need.
The minute I walked in the owners were so friendly and smiley! They were very attentive to my special dietary needs and the lady who cooks told me exactly what was going into my food.
The food came and the portion was really big, and wow the flavours, was just so tasty and fresh! Shame I was leaving Lagos as I would want to go and eat there again.
The staff were talking to me asking about my morning kayak trip and really cared, which makes such a huge difference.
Restaurant was modern and very clean. 100% recommend!
Only 4 stars as it won't let me give 5 stars for a non-veg restaurant.

Great beer & food - Edit

Trendy little place. Vegan options were marked on the menu and the chef (who was very friendly) came out and spoke to us about the different dishes -- we ordered 2 tapas to share and they were delicious! My husband was also very impressed with the beer menu :)

Pros: Vegan options marked

Cons: The bread wasn't vegan

Mooie Mix - Edit

Met happy cow bij 2 authentieke Belgen uit Gent terechtgekomen. Een heerlijk Belgisch biertje besteld!! Mmmm. Dit leuke stel laat je meteen "thuis" voelen in Lagos.
Zelf gemaakte producten. En zeker ook de handgesneden frietjes met de eigen gemaakte mayonaise proeven.
Mijn vriendin is vegetarisch en ik niet. Maar beide hebben we super lekker gegeten.
Aanrader!!

Great veggie food served by friendly staff - Edit

I came to Estudio Vegetariano at lunchtime (I hadn't read the opening hours, my mistake) and stumbled upon this place next door. Lots of veggie and vegan options marked on the menu, and the (very friendly) chef was very willing to make changes and accommodate. I had the spinach/aubergine wrap and it was really nice, with fresh salad. The food did take a while, but it was cooked from scratch! I'd definitely recommend the Belgian fries (I was warned that the mayo was non-vegan though).

Pros: Lots of veggie/vegan options, Very friendly staff

Cool place, yummy food - Edit

I rarely get to hug the chefs haha but these owners were not only super fun and friendly but also very flexible with the food. Vegan options were already stated on the menu and with my diet and intolerances I rarely get to choose what I eat but the chef even wanted to know what I like and didn't. And the meal was still heavenly!! Not just for vegans. Thanks again guys!

Love, Anna

Pros: Delicious food, Cool n friendly staff, Close to city center

Cons: None

Best Vegan - Edit

Super cool trendy Belgium couple opened this restaurant, we had a vegan menu deal with soup, the dish was fantastic! Great deal for the price and so much yummyness in one plate, I really really enjoyed finding this place! Recommend! This was the best meal ever! Would give a 5* but the happy cow only allowes for fully vegetarian restaurantsl

Pros: Excellente food, Friendly staff, Nice vibe
