A must when in Bamako

The Bistro is situated above the hotel and is independently managed. It is in the residential area of the Hippodrome and hidden away in a nice oasis. The service and food is really excellent and although a little pricey a really nice food experience.

Lovely atmosphere - outdoor seating. Good service, good food, good wine. Service can take a while, which is understandable since the place is usually packed.

It's not obvious to find consistent, high class restaurants in Bamako, but this is one of them. Not the cheapest by any means and I would maybe want a larger menu, but what is there is well cooked and really enjoyable. My steak was cooked according to request and held a very nice standard. I would focus on mains and... More

This restaurant is hidden away on an unpaved street in a residential area in the Hippodrome area. But when you eventually find it, you will not be disappointed. It has a typical French menu, with a good selection of food and good wines. It is upstairs in the building with a big thatched roof, which give an open atmosphere, cool... More

Quaint Hotel ( no TV...) romantic feminine style hotel with 6 rooms so difficult to book. Nice dining experience with good food a little on the expensive side but varied menu and a well sought after Sunday brunch. Added advantage of being the ONLY place in Bamako with a well stocked library of English books.

Well run, clean little place with restaurant on the covered roof deck above the hotel over looking lush garden and swimming pool. Went for dinner and had pork chops and amsh which were great with a warm freshly baked chocolated brownie with ice cream. Well worth it

Comme Chez Soi is a fantastic place. Everything is as it should be. The Eggs Benedict is perfect, they are able to accommodate special requests, the Bloody Marys and bloody perfect. Everything is served with care and everything looks and tastes exactly the way it should. This is very hard to find in Bamako.

Very tasty, fresh food with thoughtful pairings; good cocktails and excellent live music on Thursday nights. Can't wait to get back for brunch on a weekend.

" brochette de boef " is advisable. You can join your dinner with interesting people coming from town to this place

Visited several times over past months for brunch and dinner. (Note that brunch doesn't start before 11:00) Great variety for brunch and dinner. Delicious salads with French cheese and tender steaks on menu. Great espresso coffee available. Staff will take orders off the menu, if you fancy something different. Setting is outdoor on rooftop of the hotel section. No mosquitoes... More
