While in Dakar for 5 days, I had twice dinner in New Africa, a small restaurant. The owner is a friendly lady who tries to make you feel at home, also as a solo dinner-person. It’s located in a small road in a residential area, just off a main road. It also has a few apartments for rent. The menu... More

Three of us went mid evening for dinner. The cab got us close but, then we had to walk down a dirt alleyway after asking some locals where it was att so, it isn't easy for a tourist to find.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We have lived in the Dakar for 3 years and this is one of the best places we have eaten. The menu is vast and it is very affordable. We had appetizers That were delicious and four main courses that everyone enjoyed. The mixed drinks are exotic and I would try some of the different... More

Our dishes were ample an excellent. The staff was very friendly. Would have loved to have stayed for the music and dancing, but had to catch a plane.

Just so nice and cozy, this mom and pops shop is a delight. Mix of so many influences from Africa, France and Caribbean islands. If you are lucky to be there on a salsa night you may just be hooked for a while. Nice set up for a night out with a bunch of friends to chat, laugh, drink and... More

Great people serving, and excellent food. I had the Boudain and whole fish entree which was great. The spot is slightly off the beaten path but worth finding.

The chef used to prepare the food to order. Then he got lazy and made batches and froze the food. And the microwave was set up to defreeze the plastic portions. What a shame. We don't go here anymore and most of our friends have abandoned this restaurant also.

RestaurantNewAfrica, Propriétaire at New Africa, responded to this review

We are very surprised about your criticism, because we don't used microwave at all, it's why sometimes the cooking take more time than in others restaurants. So, if you didn't appreciate the food, the reason is somewhere else. In spite of this your opinion is important. More

Very flavorful meal in a nice (although somewhat out-of-the-way) restaurant; one of my new favorites in Dakar! The highlights of the meal, in my opinion, were the crab farci (similar to stuffed crab), the curry lamb and the fish tajine. Don't be put off by the exterior appearance, or the relative emptiness of the restaurant - the food was well-prepared... More

Sylvie and Modibo provide Dakar newcomers with wonderful warm hospitality, very good food and rum-based drinks passionately crafted. Weeknight Kizomba and Salsa classes offer a welcome and energetic respite to the noisy Dakar streets provided by Elie and his talented team of dancers and Saturday night at New Africa makes a very enjoyable round-up to the week.
