Food is ok but some of their seafood gone off a few times. Fills up with ladies of the night and criminal types, great people watching,, maybe not for dinner...

Cafe de Rome has been around Dakar for decades and while the food is nice, it is not spectacular. Also the waiters were slightly grumpy to start with and only started warming up during the evening.. Would go back but not as my first choice in Dakar.

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.
