Perfectly pleasant beach-side restaurant

Reasonably cheap at 130,000 ($30) for 3 courses plus a beer and coffee, and not bad compared to what you can pay. I was surprised that it was empty on a Saturday afternoon. Service reasonably quick by SL standards and food (fish soup, shish kebab and ice cream) were well cooked and tasty... read more

Everybody goes here in Freetown. Lovely mezzanine area, both for use during the day and at night. Best fresh pizzas I've ever had. Love it!

It's one of the numerous Lebanese restaurants and 'eateries' that plague Lumley beach. The food is so-so and yet pricey. The only gem on the menu is the Philadelphia sandwich

This time last year this restaurant was absolutely brilliant, unfortunately has gone rapidly downhill, the food is at best mediocre. Very slow service which to be quite honest is the norm for SL

In Freetown, Montana's is known as the pizza place. Pizza is hard to find in Sierra Leone, and given the humid climate you have to chose a spot that can properly cook dairy products like cheese. An American recommended the pizza here, so I tried it with business associates. An overpriced $20 pizza feeds two, but oddly enough the various... More

The location of the restaurant is pleasant with its platform on the beach and the main building across the road in Lumely area of Aberdeen beach facing directly the Atlantic Sea. The well prepared food, the fresh drinks and pasteries and Icecream are delicious whereas the prices are reasonable. I take most of my meals there and I entertain my... More
