I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. We stopped in for lunch on the recommendation of our hotel and were charmed by the decor and the location of the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and put us at a table overlooking the ocean and a small private beach (very very clean !!). The food, fresh seafood tagliatelle for me and the grilled steak for my husband, was delicious. We enjoyed the restaurant so much, food and ambiance,that we decided to return the next night for dinner. This was even better if possible. Ocean view, moonlight and waves crashing on the beach, with a wonderful "chicken Yasa" and grilled fish was more than we could have asked for. Then it got better as the manager "Alpha" suggested we have our final drinks on the beach. No better way to end our vacation than sitting on a moonlit beach sipping drinks. When we return to Dakar the restaurant Ngor will definitely be a stop and we would recommend to anyone who likes great food and ambiance !!! Bon Voyage

On The Beach Dining

This place sits right on the water providing relaxing environment for an evening meal. I had the monkfish skewer plate which was pretty tasty. I only wish it would have been alrger portion (one skewer). The fries were great. The mixed vegetable side dish was nothing to talk about. The local... read more

During a two week stay, I dined at Le Ngor three times! That's a testament in itself as there are many many good restaurants to choose from. The food was consistently excellent and the view of the ocean spectacular. Le Ngor would be high on my list to revisit if the opportunity arises to visit Dakar again.

I've been coming here for years - and at first I was disappointed in some of their vegetarian options..though slowly I've come to appreciate that 1) they even have a thoughtful, interesting vegetarian selection part of the menu! and 2) they've warmed up to me asking for all sorts of substitutions. I was recently there and custom-ordered a salad, they... More

Great location and service. I had the special the first night (stuffed calamari) and it was excellent. Unlike many other places I've been they cooked it perfectly and it was tender and not over cooked. Really interesting shell decorations on the inside and outside of the building. The toilets were also really clean. We came back for a second meal... More

This is a bungalow on the coast, the waves crash as you drink and eat, food is hot and fresh, staff is low-key but quick to respond. No fancy clothes in fact bring your flip flops if you want to dip your feet in the surf. Worth the visit. Located near the U.S. Embassy

An unforgettable experience- dinner by the waves. You would be foolish not to pick the fish! Start your Meal with the shrimp cocktail, you will not be disappointed! Perfect for a romantic/ secluded meal as tables are spread apart and service is subtly seamless! When trying to find the restaurant, tell taxi drivers to head for the American embassy! It... More

Just had dinner here at Le Ngor. Had shrimp with sesame and ginger was very tasty (7000). Friends had the gampas (big prawns) and they looked amazing will be trying then next time. They have whole grilled fish as well. Beef,Chicken and fish burgers and a nice cocktail selection. The best thing about the restaurant was definitely the view. Amazing... More
