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

Shared a delicous meal with friends in a styish setting - truly international cuisine: from satays, gyozas and pasta to local Malian dishes. Nice cocktail and wine selection to top it all off.

I have lived in Bamako for 2 1/2 years and have been to Comme Chez-soi for a meal at least 30 times and have never been disappointed. Never. Even on the hottest day, the rooftop restaurant seems to be breezy and comfortable. Every meal, every drink is always delicious. (French and African dishes.) Come for brunch on a Sat or... More

The food was good, the environment warm and the African atmosphere perfect. The service was a bit slow but if you want to escape from the stress of the day and find a peaceful African corner in Bamako this is the perfect place

I came with fairly high expectations, based on the previous reviews. The occasion was the Sunday brunch. Unfortunately, the crepe with prawns and artichokes swam in a heavy saffron sauce, which kept reminding itself to me many hours after the meal was over. I wish it hadn't. Then the "green salad" was of a seriously brownish colour - and at... More
