About

Experience Atije

Atije is an immersive culinary experience based in Lagos, Nigeria. Our multi-course menus place the diversity and delectability of Nigerian cuisine on display. Our menus are fluid, based on seasonality so that we can offer you our interpretation of local cuisine at its best. We believe that Nigerian food tells deep, interwoven stories that teach us about who we are, and where we are going. We believe that how our people eat has a big part to play in who we are. So we invite you to join us our journey of discovery into how we eat as it promises to be a memorable dining experience.
