Best Restaurants in Abuja
Abuja''s restaurant scene might surprise visitors to Nigeria who
are expecting to have to ''rough it'' on the dietary front. Indeed,
in a city filled with foreign businessmen, Abuja''s best restaurants
succeed in turning out international-quality fare.
Most of the best establishments are located in the financial
district, surrounding the affluent area of Maitama. Head to Chez
Victor for outstanding French cuisine (try their filleted grouper
fish), or to Ciao for authentic Italian food with a wine-list to
match. It is common to see expatriate workers in Abuja filling the
dining rooms of the city''s swanky hotels (such as The Sheraton) as
well. Less pricey options include Spice Foods, which turn out
delicious and predominately vegetarian Indian fare; and Wakkis, who
excel at curried prawn dishes.
