One of the best in Dakar

We went with a group of friends, which is always tough on the waiters, but they had no problems keeping track of orders. Food is served quickly, and there are some great starters, including the fried cheese. Note that the restaurant is one block away from what google map says.

Located close to the Presidential Palace, this very popular resto requires a reservation to assure a table. There is a wide variety of prime steaks and meats. The use of hot plates ensures a warm meal. The mixed grill is highly recommended as are the tasty sides; especially the corn.

If you are a meat lover. La Parrilla is as good as it gets. La Parilla offers an amazing array of imported meat cooked to international standards. The service is excellent and ambiance is amazing. La Parrilla is a mecca for meat lovers. A must visit if you are in Dakar.

We went there for a business lunch and were very well received. Atmosphere is nice; they tried to build as much as they could the atmosphere of a typical Argentinian restaurant. Cuts were very nice, of course not like in Argentina but very good quality and sauces. Grilled vegetables also recommended. I think we should have come at night, as... More

We were seven of different nationalities to test this restaurant. Is serves grilled BBQ, one of the best in Dakar, if not the only BBQ restaurant. Food is very good, atmosphere is nice, service is good. You can see the grill from your table if you face it behind a glass wall.
