MasterCard cardholders to enjoy priceless offers from 28 of Lagos’ best restaurants in November

Lagos, Nigeria, 29 October 2014: Food-lovers are in for a priceless treat as MasterCard Restaurant Week presented by Lost in Lagos debuts in Lagos. From 1 November – 21 November 2014, MasterCard cardholders will be able to enjoy the best dining experiences that Lagos has to offer at exceptional prices.

Famous the world over, Restaurant Week is a culinary event that celebrates all the qualities that define a great restaurant:  high standards in food and presentation, ambiance and service. Held in several cities including Amsterdam, New York, Singapore, Beijing and now Lagos, Restaurant Week gives food-lovers the opportunity to dine at top restaurants at discounted set-menu prices.

MasterCard Restaurant Week will include special menus from 28 of the city’s top restaurants including Spice Route, Fusion, Bistro 7, Oje, Viceroy and Bar Campione as well as a handful of exclusive, fine dining establishments like Izanagi, Rooftop and Medici Restaurant among others.

“MasterCard Restaurant Week will change the way people look at dining out in Lagos as it will give food-lovers the opportunity to experience new restaurants that they may have been unable  to try before,” says Tannaz Bahnam, Founder of Lost in Lagos. “Each of the participating restaurants is known for their excellent cuisine and service, ensuring that restaurant-goers will enjoy an unforgettable dining experience,” she says.

Over the three-week promotional period, all participating restaurants will offer a three-course set menu including a choice of appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Diners can select from an exclusive MasterCard Restaurant Week menu at a set price starting from N4,000 for lunch, N6,000 for dinner and N10,000 for fine dining. To redeem these offers, MasterCard cardholders need to register on MasterCard’s Priceless Africa (www.pricelessafrica.com) platform.

“Consumers in Nigeria have a strong affinity for dining out, and through MasterCard Restaurant Week, we can  reward our valued cardholders by offering an unrivalled experience that not only helps them to pursue their passion for great food, but encourages a continual shift from cash to electronic payments,” says Omoke Ojomuyide, Vice President and Area Business Head, MasterCard West Africa.

MasterCard launched the Priceless Africa consumer loyalty platform in Nigeria in 2013. Dedicated to bringing consumers closer to their passions while celebrating the spirit of Africa, the popular campaign offers a collection of special discounts and rare experiences, curated just for MasterCard cardholders.

Catch a free ride with Uber during MasterCard Restaurant Week

From 1 November 2014, Uber – an app that connects consumers with a private driver – is offering all MasterCard cardholders two free rides up to the value of N5000 each. Cardholders simply need to download Uber’s application, load their MasterCard payment card details into the app and use the voucher code MasterCardLagos to redeem the offer, which is valid until 1 February 2014.
