If you're only in town for a drop-in visit, try a taste of Nigeria at Jevinik (494 Bengui Road, off Adetokumbo Ademola Crescent, Wuse II). For upmarket dining, you can't beat the choice of restaurants at the Transcorp Hilton.

The international hotel chains are concentrated in central Abuja. Dignitaries mingle with the fashion pack at the Transcorp Hilton in the Maitama District which houses 4 restaurants, a large shopping area and a casino! (Transcorp Hilton,, Tel: 234(0)9-290-6119, 0804-211-6322).
