Brilliant, you get a real sense of Gambia in this place, eaten here on a few occasions and the locals look after you.

Popped in one lunchtime for a beer and it was lovely and relaxing and the menu looked good. My friend and I decided to back there on a Sunday evening as we were told there would be music and lots to see. It was, we were told 'the place to go'. It was an eye opener, very loud reggae music... More

Great to walk along the beach from Ocean Bay, see the boats in the bay and stroll up to the bar for a daytime beer. Staff very welcoming and a nice place to cool off in the shade. However, approaching the bar one evening from the road it's not signed, you need to turn down the road where the construction... More

Just returned from Cape Point. Spent a lot of time at Sunshine. Mams and the team are great, really looked after me. Great food and really good value. Lovely music including a fantastic drum band from Guinea Bissau some afternoons. I will go back in November to visit new friends.

What a delight - we were first attracted by an offer of beers at 50% hotel prices. But discovered so much more. These guys are very proud of their country, and love to chat! About trips one can make, football and all manner of things - just like down the local at home in the UK! We experienced Gambian time... More

I read the reviews & sought this place out. Maybe I hit a bad day? There was 1 other paying customer. The beer wasn't too long in arriving but it took over an hour for the food to arrive. This only arrived then because after an hour, I asked for the bill twice & was prepared to walk. Then the... More

Really lovely spot, well worth a visit. Chilled out atmosphere. Delicious food, try their homemade fish fingers. They do reggae nights at the weekend which we unfortunately missed. We were told not to walk there at night due to lack if street lighting but you can get one of the tourist guides to walk you there safely.
