Tranquil and Tasty Spot on the Beach

This is a lovely restaurant right on Fidjrosse Beach outside of central Cotonou. The restaurant has a lovely deck overlooking the beach where you can relax, or an assortment of palava huts right on the beach with lounge chairs. The only missing is some hammocks! :) The food here is... read more

Some 20 minutes outside Cotonou, you'll find this quiet beach restaurant. Very friendly service and a constant quality of nice meat and fish dishes. You will eat eather on the terrace or with your feet in the sand, really a great place.

I'm really disappointed.. this restaurant was under renovation when we got there, If this place is meant to be a tourist attraction, the management should take dissemination of information more seriously.. The location of the restaurant is very remote and secluded. We spent almost an hour trying to get there.. Bad, very bad!!! Anyone that wants to visit this restaurant... More

There aren't many great restaurants in Cotonou. La Cabane du Pecheur however is an exception. Nearly everything on their menu is good. I particularly like the ceviche salad. They also have a full bar. Not only are the seafood dishes excellent, but the view is superb. It's right on the beach, so you can enjoy good food and drinks while... More

Up on the terrace you can see the sandy beach stretch on both sides for miles whilst enjoying some fresh fish. This is the place to be just 20 minutes drive out of Cotonou on the Route des Pêches.

We had l'Assisette du Pecheur which includes a lobster, king proawns, calamar and white fish. I took it with tagliatelle pasta and it was delicious. The lemon pie (tarte au citron) was also very good with the espresso coffee. Funny part: when we asked the waiter if the shrimps were from the freezer or fresh, he answered that the shrimps... More

Went here already more than once and will be back. Really value added by this place to the beach just outside Cotonou. Very friendly service, really only 75 meters from the ocean, we once saw dolphins from the terrace. Food is good, a lot of variety as compared to the competition in this area.

The location is the first advantage: the terrace is with seaview and the kids can go to the playground while waiting for their food. The food is simply delicious with lots of fish or seafood. There is a good wine card as well. If I can suggest something, it would be not to allow cigar smoking as the smell can... More

Excellent place to have a nice dinner on the beach. It's not too far away from Cotonou, just 10 mins on the Route de Peche. Pizza's are good and the place is excellent to have a sundowner on Sunday afternoon.
