“Perfect seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Myself and 3 friends dined here en route back to England. Quite possibly the best fish meal that i have ever eaten. Excellent location and ambience, attentive service and an excellent view. A definite jewel that should be visited by anybody looking for an excellent meal in dakar.

“Fresh Food and Lovely Site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

There is an extensive menu of mainly fish dishes. The fish is wonderfully fresh but don't bother to order oysters they are the toughest I have ever had. For some reason the oysters have developed an excessively strong muscle which makes them rather tricky and not very pleasant to eat. The other dishes we ordered were well cooked and nicely presented. The services is friendly and efficient and there is an extensive range of drinks available.

We are do our best to offer fresh seafood and it's not difficult as we have a fishing center... :)
Concerning the oysters, depending on the season, they can be tough that's true...

“Lovely fresh fish by Ngor beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

For lunch or at dinner this quaint little pad is located just beside the beach and the Ngor Island pirogue-ferry boarding point.
Seating is in a small atmospheric courtyard (half out-of-doors and half under parasols in the day-time).
There are windows and a door out down onto the beach
The freshly-landed fish and crustaceans are laid out on ice or in tanks for the restaurant guests to select and chose their preferred method of preparation.
There is a menu of course, but I prefer simply to chose what I can see by way of what's freshly come in and ask for advice if necessary.
Prices are pretty reasonable and the quality is great.

“A jewel in Dakar ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This was my first trip to the car and I did not have high expectations. This restaurant has a small beach town atmosphere and it is located right on the waterfront. What sets this restaurant side from others is this seafood, delicious and generous portions. In my six day trip I had eaten here 3 times. It would have been 4 times but my friend insisted on another restaurant for I really regret.
