Farid looks trendy and modern. With good choice of dishes and affordable prices. Especially I liked Creme Brule. Service is good.

Farid is both a great place to hang out with friends and a great place to eat. We had the Mezze for two and another dish we knew from lebanese cuisine but wasn't in the menu so the owner offered to make it for us. Everything was delicious. The service was impecable. We would definitely return.

The setup and the staff are nice , the food is great. If you like lebanese food Farid is your place in Dakar. As for the prices are pretty acceptable. Cheers

This is our favorite restaurant downtown. It's our go-to for out of town guests or anytime we want great Lebanese food. I can't rate it five stars because it's not the best of the best, but it's definitely in the upper echelon of Dakar restaurants.

We had lunch one day and it was perfect. Nice staff. Dinner on Christmas night were too much food and not that good. The first entrees were excellent, then it did not taste at all after that. But we will go back and hope they do Libanese dishes, the kind of food we are sure they can do perfect!

We ordered the mezzo for two and it was fantastic. 11 not so little dishes. My regret is I ate too much upfront and couldn't finish the absolutely fantastic lamb, beef, and chicken at the end! Tirimasu for dessert was great. Only thing I didn't love was my non alcoholic ginger and bissap drink, too sweet, like a kids drink.... More

A haven in the middle of the city. The outside appearance doesnt prepare you for the restaurant at all. The kebbeh and meat are amazing indeed. You get the feeling that the owner is cooking for you and feeding you in their courtyard. Go with an empty stomach since portions are large and when I say large, I mean LARGE~

This Lebanese restaurant takes you to a different world altogether; one with kebabs and falafels and what not. Set in a pleasant environment which is right in the heart of the city, the place serves delicious and authentic Lebanese food. The mixed grill, seafood skewer, fajitas and falafels were a pure delight to the senses. everything about the restaurant was... More

A little overpriced, but that's the norm in Senegal, unfortunately! The food was great, the service just average. Wine selection by the glass, very nice!

What a surprise to discover Farid's restaurant tucked away in between so many buildings... nothing in the street hints at the comfortable gardens behind the walls. The food is delicious (lebanese food is delicious) and the service is perfect. We went several times, always with friends as it is the perfect place to enjoy the company and atmosphere in a... More
