Just a little Nouakchott update, la Salamandre has closed and it seems it won't re open in the near future. The owner has acquired the Mediterranée restaurant, it has a slightly different menu, but as I haven't tried out the Salamandre, my rating here is for the Méditeranée.

Excellent pizza, a nice change from the usual menu choices in Nouachott. Also does takeaway pizza which seemed to do good business. Ate here twice. Lovely owner! Restaurant air conditioned and nice decor. Outside space available but could do with improving.

The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly but mostly speak French only. The hotel almost has no sign and in a small side street inside a house. At night the area has no lighting at all

Very quiet when we went there. Prawn cocktail served was of very poor quality with too much sauce, only a small quantity of cut up prawn and mixed with apples for some reason. Main courses were average and chinese style dish did not contain any ginger at all (as it said on the menu). Also very oily.

Nice and cool and fresh beer, food OK . Airco was blowing like a tornado, then the staff turned it off because a local was complaining. Quickly too hot inside.

Went back to this restaurant twice, one of the best we could find! Chicken dishes are especially good.

I was a bit nervous to order sushi in Nouakchott, but the sushi plate at La Salamandre did not disappoint. The fish literally melted in my mouth. The prices are steep, but when you are sick of rice and beans it is worth it.
