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.

There is an extensive menu of mainly fish dishes. The fish is wonderfully fresh but don't bother to order oysters they are the toughest I have ever had. For some reason the oysters have developed an excessively strong muscle which makes them rather tricky and not very pleasant to eat. The other dishes we ordered were well cooked and nicely... More

Short and sweet. Decent wine selection, very very good seafood selection and its all caught fresh that day. Would go again in a heart beat. Atmosphere was very pleasant especially during sunset.

For lunch or at dinner this quaint little pad is located just beside the beach and the Ngor Island pirogue-ferry boarding point. Seating is in a small atmospheric courtyard (half out-of-doors and half under parasols in the day-time). There are windows and a door out down onto the beach The freshly-landed fish and crustaceans are laid out on ice or... More

This was my first trip to the car and I did not have high expectations. This restaurant has a small beach town atmosphere and it is located right on the waterfront. What sets this restaurant side from others is this seafood, delicious and generous portions. In my six day trip I had eaten here 3 times. It would have been... More

This funky little place is a bit run down, but what it fails to deliver in terms of shiny surfaces it makes up with music on theme evenings and their food. Prices are reasonable and the location (on the beach in front of Ngor Island) makes this a worthwhile place for variety of color and taste. Staff and management are... More

I had a lovely and excellent dinner at La Cabanne du Pecheur. The fish was super fresh and perfectly cooked. Dinner on the terrasse is just perfect, with the sounds from sea surrounding it. Staff was super friendly and it so happens that I spent the evening chatting with the owner's mom. I really love the unpretentious, at home feel... More

My husband and I went to La Cabane du Pecheur a few weeks back and loved it. The seafood here is fantastic- amongst the best I have ever tasted and definitely the best in Dakar. The service was impeccable and the host, Jeremy is attentive and welcoming. One reviewer recommended bringing a coat as the restaurant is situated in a... More

The locals say that this is the best fish restaurant in Dakar, and I think they are right. The fish is fresh, sometimes caught just a few hours before it reaches your plate. Friendly, efficient service and very reasonable prices. I've been to la Cabane du Pecheur in evenings January and in May. Both times it was very cold. There... More
