We visited kunta kinteh and dragged a few of our friends as years ago I had the tomato soup and it was delicious. We got there and it took 1 hour 45 mins for soup and garlic bread which was like a cheap brand tinned tomato soup very thin and quite drab. We also waited a further 15 minutes for... More

We took sunbeds here everyday as it is on the better part of the beach. We ate a few times and went to the Sunday night BBQ which was fun. You can get service on the beach and all the staff are friendly.... maybe not quick, but friendly.

The location is good, the sunbeds are free and there is good Wi-Fi if you need it. The service is a bit slow (we waited almost 60 minutes for a pancake), but oh well, it's the Gambia, right?
