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.

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
