The Captains Table is attached to the Bakotu. I can recommend the chicken satay and the Butterfish. Delicious.

Enjoyed the first night here, and eat under candle light. Food was nice, but not the cheapest. Enjoyed it never the less...

Attached to the Bakotu Hotel this restaurant is very pleasant. We ate here on 3 occasions during our week in Kotu. We didn't expect culinary excellence in The Gambia but the food here was good and the service friendly.

Of the places we ate in The Gambia, this was the worst experience, waiter not very welcoming, food very ordinary. Shame, but the place was empty night after night, and was not all down to lack of tourist numbers. In a shrinking market they must focus on the quality of the food and major on customer care.

Ebola situation has drastically reduced the amount of tourists about so service was quick but then I was the only one in the restaurant for 20 minutes Tasty meal (Yassa Chicken rice & sweet potatoes) slightly more expensive than other places but a nice setting & layout Well worth a visit especially as the bumsters cannot get to you.

As there are not many places to eat in Kotu, we had a few meals in the Captains Table. The food is reasonable to quite good depending on what you have. But the food in never hot when you get it, in fact more often than not the food is barely warm and you always have to wait an age... More

Nice atmosphere and good food, maybe the best place to eat in Kotu based on our week there. It was the first place we dined at so it set an expectation but that was not met by other places we dined at.

The Captains Table is situated next door to the Bakuto Hotel and outside and covered tables. The menu and food are of an excellent standard with an accent on fish. Service is friendly and polite and prices......well where else can you get a Lobster Thermidor for £5. Definitely worth a visit.

Although I was staying half-board at Kombo Beach friends I met at the hotel were staying bed and breakfast and invited me to join them at Captain's Table. The restaurant was not too busy but I realised why the long wait for service. Each order is cooked to order. The fish was just superb. A tip: if it is chilly... More
