Since going to Toukouleur I just keep thinking of the joke of the two elderly women at a restaurant, and one of them says, "The food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions". Exactly my feelings at Toukouleur. We arrive late thinking to have desserts, around 11pm, since it's advertise... More

We were greeted by the manager at arrival and got suggestions for the Chief's special for the night. We all enjoyed the food we ordered including the Chief's special. I would go again, very nice place, god food and good atmosphere.

The good thing with the commercial centre of Dakar is that there are a few restaurants which look like a hole in the wall but once you enter the restaurant the amenities would match some of the finest restaurants in the city. Toukouleur is one such restaurant in the heart of the city. What sets it apart is the relatively... More

This place is a fancy French place, as advertised, but it isn't awesome. The taste wasn't great, but the presentation was good. It wasn't much food for the price and although they had told us over the phone they make a risotto for vegetarians, it was just an upside cup of Basmati rice with vegetables. I won't go back and...

Good service, food Ok, but not amazing. I got fish n chips which was just "normal". Apple pie with vanilla ice cream was delicious though.

This is a great place to eat out in Dakar, and it is very close to many night clubs and dancings. The atmosphere is nice. There is soft music, beautiful colours on the walls, great service. There is an open kitchen letting you see how the food is being prepared. The menu has a large variety of fresh food, especially... More

I loved this place so much that I ate here every night during a recent business trip to Dakar. Right from the friendly welcome, and the care they took of me as a solo-diner, I was made to feel special. The food is prepared in an open-plan kitchen that I was able to see from where I sat in the... More

Well prepared and original french food in a nice setting right in the center of town. A tad expensive but ideal if you have to entertain guests. My wife had the best fish of her life at Toukouleur.
