Used to be better. A moody restaurant. Has a good ambiance but the food is getting worse. ThE fish was not fresh and the portions poor. I was very disappointed this time around. I have been going there for the past twenty something years, but will definitely rethink it another time.

I had lunch here at two occasions with a group of app 7 to 12 persons. To facilitate ordering, choice was limited to "fish or meat". I took at both occasions the fish. It was OK, but rather basic. Certainly not a menu, inciting you to come back on your own. Service is friendly.

I was invited to dine in this restaurant by some friends who live and work in Cotonou. Once inside, I find the bar area coquettish with lots of nice bibelots and one could feel the touch of Marseille acutely. We ordered some "Kirs " and was quite surprised that there is only for one person and not for 2 as... More

With business colleagues, en famille or solo... Sorrento is a good place with good service and excellent food. Maybe pizza is not the forte, but the carte is diverse and food always tasty.

Le Sorrento has an lovely ambiance, and the food and service were excellent too. They are worth seeking out - stuck behind another building but certainly worth another visit. Steak and seafood were well worth it and a surprisingly good ice cream selection too.

Very nice restaurant, good food, nice staff and not too expensive, a bit difficult to find but with a local you get there easy. Shaded parking to protect your car to become an oven.

I love Sorrento, and it's a favorite of the folks I work with, so this is our go-to spot when there are celebrations or festivities or just if you want pizza. Our Beninese colleagues go here to order slabs of meat, fish, or prawns, but my favorite is the pizza. It's very thin crust, nice rich cheese, and always with... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years. I always loved the atmosphere and the food but recently I had a decidedly negative experience. I went there with two friends. Both friends ordered fish dishes (can't remember which ones) and I ordered vegetarian lasagna. We had our appetizers which took rather a long time to come but mine,... More

This was recommended by a new friend. They earned my trust with this one. We will return here again when we return to Cotonou.
