Beautiful restaurant

The restaurant is just off the beach where there is a beached ship. The tables are set on the sand, great ambiance. The pizza may be the best in Cotonou. The service is slow but friendly.

I ended up in the Biergarten after a stroll on the beach. It is located superbly ln the beach. The menu is huge, the food is prepared adequately. The setting is very nice, the restaurant and facilities clean. If i had my kids and wife with me, we probably would have ended up there every day. Having said this, the... More

This place is unique - excellent ambiance: luxury restaurant "built" (or should one say "designed") in the beach sand. You order cocktails and food from a menu as thick as a book (in German and French), then sit and sip your cocktails on the sea edge while watching the waves and ships coming in to dock.

Located in the Akpakpa quartier, the Biergarten offers a great dining experience right on the beach. The menu is vast with a good selection of meats and seafood. I had the prawn/avocado salad as a starter - it was sumptuous. Grilled fish for mains, accompanied by a glass of chilled white. Live music added to the ambience. Prices may be... More
