I actually went to Circa Non Pareil in September but had a lot in my mind and honestly was not impressed with it. It was the most underwhelming place I visited this year. I just shoved reviewing Circa Non Pareil till never until I stumbled on pictures I took of it in my photo gallery. While trying to get the address of Circa Non Pareil online, I realized that it is totally different from Circa Lagos (another restaurant). This was quite shocking for me because prior to visiting Circa Non Pareil, all the research I was doing actually led me to Circa Lagos. So, there are more than one restaurant in Lagos with the name ‘Circa’.
Circa Non Pareil’s restaurant review is shorter than others I have done in the past, do check our other well detailed restaurants/places reviews here. Circa Non Pareil is located 12e Admiralty Way Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. There are various sections of Circa Non Pareil, there is a restaurant (prive), lounge, rooftop and seaside (terrace). All the sections are closed on Monday but the rooftop opens Tuesdays to Sundays from 11am to 11pm. The seaside opens on Tuesday and Wednesday from 11am to 2am and Thursday to Sundays from 11am to 4am. The rooftop opens on Tuesday and Wednesday from 6pm to 2am and on Thursday to Sunday from 6pm to 4am. The lounge opens on Tuesday to Sundays from from 11am to 2am.
Circa Non Pareil is a collection of various sections; restaurant, lounge, rooftop and seaside. It sits by the ocean and seeks to guest with a luxurious experience with contemporary vibe.
As I mentioned earlier, I did not do a lot of research for Circa Non Pareil like I have done in the past. When my friend and I got there, they asked us if we had reservations and it was only people with reservations that could stay downstairs. We had to proceed upstairs, the ambience was cool, there weren’t a lot of people there. It is a beautiful space that speaks of architectural expertise. After we placed our order, we went to the terrace for pictures, that was like the best place to get pictures that day because the lighting indoor was not great.
Circa Non Pareil’s Food
Check out Circa Non Pareil’s full menu here My friend and I shared a pitcher of juice, I placed an order for spaghetti meat balls(₦6,500) which I did not enjoy. I just could not deal with the texture of the meat. It was my first time eating meat balls, I was not sure if the problem was with me or the food.
The customer service was all right, and there is a parking space.
My friend and I were even looking for the grass-wall which we had seen in pictures of people that went to Circa, it was actually the other Circa. If you want to enjoy your experience at Circa Non Pareil, go with a bigger budget. It is not one of those places you go to trying to be boujee on a budget.
Would I go back to Circa Non Pareil?
Honestly, nothing did it for me the day I went there, maybe another trial might actually do the magic.
