I'm a big fan of La Cabane Du Pecheur, close to my house but it feels like a million miles away. Although food is nothing unusual, they did have a great chef a little while back and you could really see the difference but now its back to normal, service is always good, nothing glamorous about the decor, but the...

Most of the tables at this restaurant offer a view of the lovely N'gor beach and island. The food here is good and reliable, although predictable. The staff is friendly and helpful, and there's a reason why everyone likes this place.

Really fresh fish, I tried the mixed grill and had no regrets. Carpaccio is also a must .. Even if not easy to find try because if you really like fish dishes it is really great ..

The restaurant has a very scenic view and is conveniently located. To add to that, the food is fresh and well prepared. The flipside is that it is a bit overpriced for the ambience it has to offer. The service was nothing great too as our waiter forgot a dish which we had ordered. The restaurant is crowded with expats... More

Booked a fishing trip through Atlantic-evasion.com based at the restaurant and was treated to great service and awesome food. Plus the trip got me a 40kg Sailfish a personal best for me and various other fish. Will be back for more fishing. Thanks to Gerry and the crew

Nice restaurant overlooking the beach in Ngor. Owner goes out fishing in the morning and gets it cooked at night. Friendly staff and ladies of the night (latter will take no for an answer).

Two colleages and I went here for lunch today. At 3000 FCFA/100g the langousta was one of the more expensive dishes on the menu (I got the smallest one in the tank at 300g). The waiter asked what size I wanted, showed me one, weighed it and cooked it. The result was delicious!

We've had a total of 7 meals here and loved every one. The view is Ngor Island and the restaurant is on a beach some local toubabs call "muscle beach". The plage is a mass of humanity all in motion, from volleyball games to synchronized workouts involving many groups of men doing pushups, exercises and running back and forth over... More

Myself and 3 friends dined here en route back to England. Quite possibly the best fish meal that i have ever eaten. Excellent location and ambience, attentive service and an excellent view. A definite jewel that should be visited by anybody looking for an excellent meal in dakar.
