Gaby Lagos is a new Mediterranean restaurant located inside Gaia Africa Club House in Victoria Island, Lagos. Gaia Africa Club is a premier private business club for female c-suite executives, business founders and senior-level professionals.
I stopped by Gaby Lagos for a late lunch in March with my usual suspect, A.
The restaurant has a strictly business vibe. I like the relaxing outdoor area at the entrance of the restaurant. When you walk in, you see the bar first, which is a mix of brown, gold and blue tones with greenery. Then, you have to climb a few steps to the dining area. It’s not a big space, but it’s big enough to cater to about forty people. I like the roof and light fittings; the way the casings drop really gives you that Mediterranean vibe. I see the sea or the beach. What do you see?
Gaby’s food menu is categorised into seven sections. Each category has just enough options for everyone to choose from. In addition, the drink menu has an ample selection of cocktails, both signature and classic.
WHAT WE ORDERED
We chose Soda Water, Passion Fruit Daiquiri and Whiskey Sour for drinks. For starters, we chose Chicken Wings Two Ways. For Mains, I chose Atlantic Catch and A chose Salmon with Yam Fries, Sweet Potato Wedges and Orange Glazed Beetroot for sides.
Our drinks were served first with complimentary bread to start. My whiskey sour was good and A enjoyed his daiquiri. The bread was lush and soft. They were definitely freshly baked bread. As a bread lover, I tried both, and they were perfect.
The Chicken Wings came not long after. They were nice, but I preferred the honey and spiced ginger one. The green one had a bitter aftertaste.
We had to wait for a while before our mains were served. The Salmon was served first. It looked dreamy, and I wondered why I didn’t order it. I tried some of it, and it was good. My Atlantic Catch came some minutes later, together with all our sides.
The Atlantic Catch was served in a water-based sauce with black olives and sweetcorn. I’m a big fan of black olives, and when I chose the meal, I didn’t even see that. I was only focused on the fact that it was a fish option. I loveeeeed it. I’m not sure I’ve ever typed that for any meal I’ve had since I’ve been reviewing restaurants.
The Beetroot and Yam Chips were A’s selections, while The Wedges were mine, but we shared them. They all banged, and we had no complaints.
SERVICE DELIVERY & CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
As we walked in, the staff welcomed and ushered us to a table of our choosing. Our waitress was pleasant and tried to offer us options on the menu, but we went with our own selections. The service was decent, but there was some wait time. I guess that’s because we ordered fish. When we were done eating, the manager came around to ask us how the food was and also told us about the club.
