Le Mediterraneen has a lovely courtyard and friendly ambiance that makes it a magnet for expats in Nouakchott. While it appears ownership has changed between 2012 and 2013, the owners now are friendly, welcoming, and still serve a quality meal. The fare offered is nothing surprising - slads, fish, and meat with a French touch - but all is fresh... More

Expensive for what it is. Merguez and grilled meats are fine. Wish they served couscous in addition to rice.

The food is excellent, arrive hungry as very decent portions. Leave room for the lovely puddings. Outside space is very charming and a break from the 'barren surroundings' outside the gate.

Had a very fine dinner. Somewhat more expensive than it should be, but the location is very nice, the food was good quality, and the service was decent. The courtyard is particularly nice.

Nice setting in the leafy courtyard outside. The food is always of a consistent standard with a nice choice of side dishes; good soups and seafood. Highly recommended.

Very good food and a great setting. Had a salad with shrimp and fish and vegetables. Everything was very tasty. Dessert was very nice profiteroles. This place is very hard to find unless you are walking down the street.

So this is my first trip to Nouakchott and I was surprised by how good the food is at Le Mediterraneen. The Manager Erika will take care of you and try to make you whatever combination of food you what. The prawns baked in cheese was amazing and everything else we have ate was as well. We tried many other... More

I am in Nouakchott and was tired of eating grilled chiken and shawarmas. Went to Le Mediterraneen only to find that it is closed and will re-open on 2nd September. The number listed here is not valid, I tried calling them before-hand.

you can eat inside or outside (but if not advised if windy), whatever you order your plate will be full and the taste very good.
