Best in the west

Certainly lives up to the best in the West slogan. Food excellent, staff attentive and the host (the larger than life darboe) goes out of his way to make it a great night my best night in Senegambia by far.

We went round a couple of restaurants in the evening and eventually got to Darboes. I had Chicken Benachin with a glass of Banana Boat. I... More
