Just like the name implies, you get nothing short of uninterrupted enjoyment at the Rhapsody restaurant. You do not just get to enjoy good food; you also get to relax in one of the most idyllic environments in Lekki. The restaurant has a bar, and pub, and offers both international and local contemporary dishes with fusion-style music to make your visit memorable.
However, the prices at Rhapsody is a bit higher than that of Kohinoor as the least dish costs around ₦3000 but it is surely worth every penny you spend. You can also book a reservation, seating service, or takeout, and it is accessible with a wheelchair.
