This means that most restaurants and chill spots in Lagos will not just be offering pickups alone anymore, but they are now resumed to allowing customers to sit in comfortable premises to enjoy their sumptuous meals.
Speaking about sumptuous meals, we decided to unwind by visiting a cool restaurant in the mainland of Lagos. Yeah.. the MAINLAND of Lagos.

It is a very easy place to locate, only that luck was not on our side as our driver took us around the whole of Abule-Egba before discovering the right path to the restaurant. Terrific!
The restaurant is designed with bright red and white colors, and it is directly built on the verge of the road. We actually expected this place to be too exposed and kind of noisy as it was too close to the road. But fortunately, it sounds out that the interior of the snail cafe is built with a terrace that seems to be noise-proof.

Any thumbs down on snail cafe restaurant?
Well, this is probably the section where we tend to frown a little. LOL. One thing we do not really like about snail cafe restaurant is the fact that they do not have a Menu card to present to customers upon arrival.
When we entered, we had to spend some time trying to figure out how orders are to be placed until we summoned a sales representative.
We think an ideal restaurant should have a detailed menu card as with other renowned restaurants we have been to. We believe this is something they can improve on soonest.
In addition to this is the seating space available in the restaurant. Perhaps, the building is not designed for a large number of people, but with what we saw, you may have to go back home when you get there and meet the whole chairs occupied.
