Bistro 7 is a quiet restaurant in Victoria Island offering simple food like pasta, salads, burgers and pizzas. It has a red, white and black colour scheme which looks cute and a comfortable, home-y looking outdoor seating area.
I ordered spaghetti with seafood and pomodoro sauce and a glass of Sangria while my friend had the prawn tempura with mashed potatoes and an orange margarita. For desert, we ordered the vanilla pana cotta with berries.
The food was slightly slow to arrive – it took about half an hour to get to us. My pasta dish was huge. There was no way I could finish it and it tasted good. I’m always really happy with large portions of food when I go to restaurants because you think since you’re paying so much, you should be given more than you can handle. I really dislike those restaurants that serve small helpings of food. Have you noticed that it’s always the most expensive restaurants that do that? I don’t understand it. What’s the point of going to a restaurant to eat and leaving hungry after the meal? So annoying.
The prawn tempura was also nice although I would have been happier if the batter on the prawns had been a little crispier. Oddly enough, the mashed potatoes may have been my favourite part of that dish. It tasted mild yet pleasing and had a good creamy texture.
Price:Two main courses, one dessert, two cocktails and a bottle of water cost N12, 400.
