Excellent freshly made food, very nice staff, away from the dusty streets, prices ok.....what more can I say. Went twice during a two day business trip and convinced a local member of MP, who had not been before, but will now go back often......

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
