“Competent Lebanese, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Lovely open courtyard , the food just kept coming. very relaxing. With some nice wine and a slight breeze - quite perfect after a hard days work. Not the best Lebanese I have eaten- but worth a visit.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

I went to the Restaurant Farid after reading all the positive Feedback on TripAdvisor and I have to say: Nothing to add. A hidden Oasis in the middle of Dakar, great food, beautiful decoration, very clean, nice people. WOW! If there were 6 stars, I would have given it 7 ;-)

“Excellent Lebanese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Excellent Lebanese food and very nice atmosphere. I suggest the Mezze menu.
Prices are quite high for Dakar.

“A wonderful break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

This is a real gem, tucked behind a solid wooden door on a side street of Dakar. I only opened the door because of the Trip Advisor sign, but wow, what a great surprise. After nearly two weeks of rice, fish, and bread in rural Senegal, the minestrone and fresh veggies were a revelation.

Quiet, significant menu, and not as expensive as it might appear to be. Not my usual taste while in Senegal, but a nice retreat.

“Surprising ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

In a rather somber street, in the very center of Dakar, entering the door of this restaurant, really creates un expected surprise view of a largely open air restaurant. A very modern ambiance creates a nice environment for the nice lebenanese meal served by very kind personnel. Sometimes it takes a while before they notice you need another drink or something like that, so don't hesitate to insist.
