If you’re planning on eating out in Lagos, EAT HERE! It was absolutely delicious! Recommend it, 100%!

Service was amazing (*super attentive and my partner was even greeted
on arrival by his first name!) The staff also made great recommendations on menu items — all of which surpassed our expectations! It’s a lovely intimate setting, including a candle lit table and ocean views. Throughout each course, we were continually surprised with “chef’s compliments” (ie. dishes that we hadn’t ordered but we’re given to us as a small appetiser / tasting before our next plate.) At the conclusion of our meal, the chef actually came to our table to check if we had enjoyed our meal and to thank us for coming. Every meal served to us was a 10/10. Make it your priority to dine here. It was amazing! ✨

We ate here whilst on holiday locally in Lagos and what a treat it was. The restaurant offers a beautiful dining room with views of the sea and from the moment we arrived were made welcome by the excellent staff. The restaurant offers an very well priced price fixe menu however we opted for a la carte which is packed with wonderful choices. Starters were chicken liver parfair for my partner and baked goats cheese for me - both of which were excellent. For the main course I opted for the Iberian pork and my partner chose Silver bass. Both were cooked and presented to perfection with lovely vegetables to accompany. The restaurant has a well curated wine list and has prices to suit all budgets. Our waiter was most helpful with out choice. We finished with a chocolate fondant which was fabulous. Restaurant Vivendo is a fantastic experience with excellent food and exemplary staff. Cannot recommend highly enough

We booked an evening meal here despite dinners being included in our hotel package. We were drawn in by the TripAdvisor reviews.

The food was terrific. We had an unexpected amuse bouche to start us off and petite fours to end. We shared the goats cheese salad and chicken liver parfait as starters and I followed with silver bass with white wine foam. We both had homemade chocolate fondant cake for dessert, which was incredible. All of the food was wonderful.

The service was well mannered and helpful. It's very hard to see what 'touristguy' found wrong with the place to justify walking out without paying!

The service was very friendly

I was shocked to read the review from some prat giving his details as Tourist Guy 1963. I have dined at Vivendo with my wife many times. The food is of best quality and the chef, Christof, produces fabulous meals. In England, if someone left without paying for a meal they would be arrested for the criminal offence of deception. Perhaps Tourist Guy is going around the Algarve visiting restaurants and running off without paying on a regular basis. For any readers, the review by Tourist Guy is false and has no bearing on the quality of Vivendo. Looking forwards to our next visit. Yum! Yum!
