The restaurant will make you feel as if you are dinning in a luxury yacht. The tides of the sea seen and heard around the restaurant and the interior details including the toilets is commendable. Food and the presentation is not out of the world but it is nice. Must visit if u are in Dakar...

I'm not sure if there is a Mexican standoff going on or he has genuinely forgotten me.... More

A lovely setting over the sea. Wonderful grills available. The chicken and fish dishes that I have tried were excellent. The seafood pasta was also great. An english menu is also available from the staff.

What a phenomenal experience to taste the Cigale (Senegal grilled style) + spicy remoulade and local Fines de Claire right over the surf on the Corniche in Dakar. Must goto place when in Dakar, I'm going back for a second stop on this same trip!
