Fun spot, lots of variety

Food, art, local artisans. Worth a visit, though it is geared to tourists! Several different artists, many little eateries, serving really freshly-caught seafood. Saw some things that had my landlocked eyes popping out of my eyeballs. I think it's the stuff that grows on the side of a ship... read more

(Ignore the trip advisor map until they fix it or you will never find this place.) Well known to Dakar expats, this seafood restaurant is slightly "hidden" behind a wall signed for Le Jardin, across the street from the beachside cluster of small cafes and artisan shops at La Pointe des Almadies. The location makes it a great place for... More

One of the best "Paella" you'll ever taste, and that is without forgetting the tastiest sea food platters with the melting tasteful "Fondant au chocolat". Definitely i will repeat it whenever i come back

Food, art, local artisans. Worth a visit, though it is geared to tourists! Several different artists, many little eateries, serving really freshly-caught seafood. Saw some things that had my landlocked eyes popping out of my eyeballs. I think it's the stuff that grows on the side of a ship - barnacles? Are they safe to eat? I'm not that adventurous....

This restaurant has a large menu of choices including fizza and seafood. We decided on the pizza with a Gazella brand beer, a local. Both were excellent. The bill for a full pizza and the beer was $12 USD. Nice atmosphere, with lots of patrons, right near the ocean. I would go again!

The restaurant was recommended to us by the taxi driver when we discovered that the place nextdoor was closed. Starter: Mussels. Many were broken and there was not much sauce. Main: The main was decent but nothing too specia. The dessert, a fondant au chocolat was amazing. For the quality, the restaurant was pricy.

The atmosphere is great but the quality of the food is only average. personally I didn't receive good service. I payed for an overpriced water bottle, only for the server to try and take it away after my dinner.

We eat here once or twice a year and let the kids swim. A big, clean pool with a diving board. I've always enjoyed the food as well.

We enjoyed the food so much we came back a second time. The menu has a variety of Middle Eastern food, pizza, and seafood. The kids really enjoyed the pizza, while the parents liked the mezza and the seafood. The servers are always around without being pushy. The owner makes a point to great every guest. The servers have enough... More
