Surrounded by the hustle, bustle and hassle of downtown Dakar, the Bideew restaurant in the ‘Institut Français’ offers a cool haven of peace with its shaded terrace and verdant garden and enormous kapok tree. A menu is offered for lunch each weekday. Or, try the Bideew salad of shrimps marinaded in lime juice and ginger, or the Beef forestière salad,... More

No one could imagine there is such a quiet place in the city center of the noisy Dakar. I had lunch there today and there are fans and trees everywhere. It is situated in the middle of the French Institute. It looks like a paradise island without the beach. The food is good for what it's worth. Prices are regular... More

Other than a waiter on rolleblades, this is more of a notable hangout amongst expats than a great stop for food.

When you are in a hurry and you want to have nice meal you must visit Bideew, located in down town Dakar, it offers you great food, you have to try the mashed sweet potato, affiliated to French cultural center, most of the time there is an event there, a group singing or a film showing... i recommend this restaurant...

A very cosy place in downtown Dakar. Nice mix of French influence and local traditions. Very clean and friendly service.

After the hustle and bustle of town, the concrete, the dust…. Le Bideew is a little oasis in the centre of Dakar with its semi-outdoor seating near the the garden. It's colourful mosaic decor comes to life with the lighting at night, but this is a good place to go at anytime of the day because they offer full meals... More

This is my favorite restaurant because I've never been disappointed with any of the dishes. The hardest thing in Dakar is consistency in quality. Bideew has it! And once the staff knows you, you feel like royalty ! It's part of the French institute.

Great food. Large portions. Efficient staff. A relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Big draft Flag beers for not a lot of money. What's not to like about this place? Top marks all around. We were lucky to walk in and get one of the last available tables at 8:30 on a Wednesday evening, so probably not a bad idea to book... More

Just got back from a lovely dinner at bidew. The atmosphere is really relaxed with a great outdoor bohemian vibe (fitting for its surroundings). The food was really really good, big portions and at half the price of some other mixed-menu restaurants in the area. We had two mains, a beer, a glass of wine and water all for 20... More
