At a first glance is not easy to notice the restaurant, but once the door is open you feel like you are in a garden anywhere in Middleast. We had mezze and it was seriously a lot! When we thought it was over, one of the waiters came with two more dishes. Once we asked for the dessert, another waitress... More

I came here for a business dinner - hidden behind a big wall and door Farid is a little gem in the heart of Dakar centre. The terrace is like an oasis and also the interior of the restaurant is very classy and stylish. The food is fantastic, proper lebanese. Especially the mezze are to die for. I'm definitely returning... More

I went for dinner with colleagues, including Lebanese colleagues. Food is of great quality, Lebanese chef in the kitchen. I would have wished to have a larger choice of wines, maybe the only point to improve.

I suggest you call for reservation if you wish to... More

There is a reason that this is the top rated restaurant in Dakar. We enjoyed it so much that we went back a week later and ate there again. I found the quality and variety of food to be outstanding. The atmosphere was probably the best feature. Clean, modern, spacious, with options for indoor dining, but mostly a beautiful large... More
