This is the "college pizzeria" of Bamako; frequented by westerners and malians alike, with good fries and great Chawarmas, a lebanese fast food. Its cheap, and not fine dining, but a good place to go when your fridge (or... More

Relax is by far one of my most popular restaurants in Bamako. They cater for many different foodies, and the food and prices are excellent. Relax is the place to be if you want to know what is happening in town and who is visiting.

Le Relax is a heaven, after a day of walking in the dust, rubbish and filth of Bamako streets. Very good Lebanese food and I strongly recommend the soujouks.

Chill spot for pastries, coffee, and brunch, close to La Formis (grocery store) for Sunday errands and Byblos (nightclub) for Saturday night pre-gaming. Yes, I pregame with coffee and pain au chocolat. Huge menu of breakfast and brunch food including egg dishes, a decent selection of Middle Eastern choices like labneh and hummus, and pastries. Coffee is good. Atmosphere is... More

We had lunch here one day. The food was excellent and delicious. The capitaine provençale was delicious. The pizza was also very good. There are a mix of Malian and expatriates here.
