Good food, great atmosphere and a lot of fun!

Very good food, also for vegetarians! Lamin Darboe is a perfect host and the whole staff is very friendly. The Boss Lamin is also a talented singer and you can have a lot of fun when he performs with his band. The combination of good food, music and dance is perfect!

We visited here a number of times during our visit to The Gambia and found the service and food to be excellent. Hopefully we will be back in December.
