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

Great Lebanese mezze -- the best in Dakar. Chic ambiance and excellent service. Fantastic place for a lunch meeting and for a treat when in town.

Cold beer, a huge menu of Lebanese specialties (as well as some Mexican, some seafood, and a few other odd items mixed in), great service, live music and air conditioned--what more do you want in central Dakar? Plus, if you are staying in their hotel across the street, they will put it on your room tab!

Good quality, price not matching what you get in your plate, much too expensive for what it is C'est bon, mais beaucoup trop cher pour le prix

Located in centre ville, this restaurant offers a variety of lebanese and european cuisine. Service is great and restaurant has a lovely ambience too. It also offers a great "formule midi" ( lunch formula ) with a dish of the day complete with salad and dessert and is quite decently priced. One should try out this for sure. I suggest... More
