One of the best in town

Some great collection of culinary from various European countries made in African style is what greets you here. Good collection of wines and beer too. Overall a nice place for a good meal.

I love the Cafe de Rome as the brasserie-style food and the fast friendly service never disappoints. It's also extremely conveniently located in the heart of the downtown (Plateau) business district of Dakar, so apart from enjoying lunches and dinners there, I also use it as a little oasis between meetings and rendez-vous to drop in and have a beer...

The restaurant it very nice and provides indoor and outdoor seating. Prices are high, but to be expected in a capital city. The food was excellent.

This nice continental restaurant is celebrating its fifteenth year. My first visit there showed why. We got a seat immediately at half past noon, and the service was pretty fast. I got a satisfactory lasagna al forno, and my colleague got a quite good grilled fish. This place is not going to get three stars in Michelin, but at $40... More

I ate here a number of times during my recent extended stay in Dakar. It is a true bistro which is hard to find in Senegal. The Italian entries are very good and are reasonably priced. I found it a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of Dakar with good and friendly service and comfortable surroundings.

Very good italian food. at reasonable prices I had a fantastic seafood risotto. If you like wine avoid the Wine of the House or you'll get a headache
