Located in the heart of Lekki Phase 1, the Harvest Lagos is a hidden gem in the busy suburb of Lekki in Lagos Nigeria. It is one of the newer restaurants In Lekki, having opened its doors just last year in 2018. The immediate wow factor is the clever use of space as the restaurant is located directly beneath a block of luxury apartments called the Bridge apartments, used for both long and short stays.
Upon arrival at the Harvest Lagos, the immediate wow factor is the beautiful art mural outside. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with clear inspiration from a Brooklyn style building. It is evident that the design and furniture were thoughtfully picked out.
The feel of the restaurant is simultaneously modern yet rustic which is befitting on Brooklyn style architecture. The Harvest gives two dining options either inside or the outdoor section for people like me who prefer to sit outside overlooking a beautiful pool.
Once I sat down outside by the poolside I was greeted by a very friendly waiter called Yinka who showed me the menu and was very well informed on the various food options. Customer service is a key component of a pleasant dining experience and it appears that the Harvest has taken some time to train their staff to high standards. What I love about the menu is that it is straight forward, very simple and made my decision making very quick.
I ordered a chicken parmesan which is a traditional yet classic Italian dish which is served with traditional spaghetti and breaded and baked chicken with delicious marinara sauce and cheese. The food was absolutely delicious and very fresh and the portion was very filling. Safe to say I was thoroughly satisfied. The food took about 15/20 minutes to arrive and while I waited I had a scrumptious freshly squeezed pineapple juice as I waited. Their food and drink options are endless and there is something for everybody.
Apart from the mouthwatering food and excellent customer service, what I like about the Harvest is the flexibility of the space. From my observation majority of the customers are between the ages of 20-45, space is also great for families, perfect for lone diners who want to get some work done especially in the late afternoons as well as good for semi-formal business meetings. The Harvest is also great for a date night with your significant other or your friend and also suitable for sports lovers who want a fun environment to watch the big game on a humongous screen. The Harvest is very well known for their famous for their Sunday Brunch which attracts a post-church clientele and brunch lovers from all over Lagos and is the Sunday brunch is known to go till late on Sunday evenings. It is also perfect for small events and launches.
Overall I recommend the Harvest Lagos, and look forward to going back there very soon to try out the other delicious options on their menu.
The opening hours are Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 11pm.
