Amazing location, food & service ok

This is probably the most romantic dinner location in Dakar. You can choose between sitting indoors (boat-themed interior) or outside along the landing. Seems to attract a mixed crowd of expats, business people and well-off locals. The menu is extensive, although several things were not... read more

I think this is one of the best restaurants that you can go in Africa. In terms of taste, varity, service, ambiance, location maybe even prices. Decorations of the restaurant is awesome:) Sailors will adore it. I suggest you to eat there at least 2 times ::)

This is really a tourist place, I think although, I'm sure the locals like it too. They have quite a varied menu including beef, fish and chicken, with one picture menu for tourists. I had the fish sampler that was very good although, they don't pIck the bones out for you. Service was good but then, there weren't a lot... More

Had a late lunch here today, fries used old oil, the fish fillet tasteless and the paper steak was terrible and had a soapy taste. Family politely paid and ran out will never return.

This restaurant spreads out onto a pier with lovely views of the cornice and islands around Dakar. It is family owned and there are some great pictures of the owners passion - marlin fishing. The service is great - I went twice and had local fish grilled and served simply with salad or rice. Delightful!

I had a business dinner at Lagon 1 when visiting Dakar recently and it was a decent meal. The fish was tasty and the wine just fine.The waiters dressed like sailors looked smart and their service was okey. Found the Resturant rather too over priced but the ambiance is very good and worth visiting while in Dakar. It is located... More

Unusual setting -inside a boat- with waiters dressed in marine uniforms. Food is delicious, a bit pricey. If you get the photo menu - for Non French speakers - dont get dissuaded by the pics, the real food looks hundred times better!

A friend of ours from Dakar, insisted they take us here for dinner, saying it was a great place to eat food for all requirements not just the wide choice of sea food... And a place you had to visit here.. The restaurant itself when you step in is setup like a boat and a pier with a 100% nautical... More
