Crepaway is a relatively new restaurant in Victoria Island, Lagos. It’s at the same building that was Auto Lounge then Prevada before it became Casper and Gambini’s. I visited in February 2020 with my friend, T. If I knew this was the last restaurant I’d be able to sit in to eat for a while, I’d have stuffed my face that day.
The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor sitting arrangements. I really like what they did with the space considering that it has been used by other businesses before. There’s a big tree right in the middle of the restaurant and there are enough tables to sit more than 100 people easily. Upstairs houses a sports bar and a terrace sitting set up with a view.
The menu has an array of intercontinental dishes with familiar meal options like quesadillas, nachos, burgers, salads, and pasta.
WHAT WE ORDERED
We ordered Chicken Wings tossed in buffalo sauce to start and I decided to try the Bocca Crab Sandwich while T chose the Crepaway Club Sandwich.
I really liked the chicken wings. I also like that we were given gloves to take care of the mess. I think I ate 5 out of the 6 pieces we ordered.
When the sandwiches came, I was excited to try mine because it was my first time eating a crab sandwich. However, when I took my first bite, I didn’t taste the crab and I kept searching for the crab through my entire meal. The sandwich was stuffed with mayo whipped veggies which I eventually brought out and ate the baguette plain. T on the other hand said his sandwich tasted like a regular club sandwich. Unfortunately, the fries were basic as well.
We didn’t do desserts but I later found out we should have because apparently, a lot of people come here solely for their dessert meals. I was already discouraged after my sandwich experience so when the waiter came to ask if we were doing desserts, my NO was loud.

Crepaway is perfect for every kind of restaurant visit because there’s enough space for a party, work meetings, actual work while grabbing a bite, pre-game, or just a regular date. What I loved most about the restaurant is their slogan: “come as you are“, it’s super welcoming.
I miss eating out and sharing my thoughts with y’all and I hope things get better soon so that I can do more of this.
