Ways too expensive but nice

Beautiful setting, good food, crazy prices. I don't mind paying extra for good stuff but I just don't think what you get justifies the price. Aside from that it's a nice place.

Alkimia is in the Almadies neighbourhood of Dakar, attracting mainly expats and Dakar's upperclass. I attended a business lunch there recently and we had the private dining room to ourselves. The food was excellent and while staff were very friendly, service was a bit slow. I didn't try the bar at night, but even during the day it looks like... More

I had the pleasure of being invited by a friend to this real Oasis. It is modern, very friendly staff, and the quality of food would in Europe match for a BIB-gourmand or even a Michelin star. It is a hidden jewel, they could advertise a bit more as if you don't know it you won't find it which is... More

Vey modern ambience, good service and food. Prices are high for the area but at lunch there is an unexpected cheap menu du jour.

Great seafood, nice atmosphere, and a reasonable price. I would go again. The place is clean and has nice clean restrooms, which is often an indicator for me!

If you like classy atmosphere, stylish lighting and water effects, a place that keeps up with the monthly trend then Alkimia is a place you need to try out. It's a hype spot with a very wide selection of starters, mains and desserts… they have a chic grill area too. Good cocktails. The waiters are very nice and eager to... More

I went to this place twice while in Dakar. The first time was for dinner and second for drinks. Once you walk in, you are greeted by the hostess who will proceed to find you a table. There was no wait both times. The ambiance and decor are great. They have cool water features and plants that give the place... More

Incredibly overpriced for a meal that wasn’t the absolute greatest meal in my life. The atmosphere on Saturday nights is great as they have live music. But there is even better live music in other parts of Senegal where drinks are just as tasty at lesser price. The ambiance does make you feel like you are in south beach Miami…well... More
