“unfriendly to our group”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We ate with a large group - the food was quite mediocre and the treatment of our group over the bill was very unfriendly. We won't be going back.

“Very good and quite expensive fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

There's no way: you're in front of the Ocean, you may want some fish, you want it not to be overcooked and too spicy: you'll pay it a lot.

We had a buillabaisse, a seafoodplate, a glass of pastis, a bottle of good french wine, a tasty dessert and we spent 34 € per persone. It's a lot, especially in Lomè but we could afford it.
It's the same atmosphere you can file in a 100€-dinner restaurant in Italy or in Cote d'Azur... you should not complain about it even if you're in Togo.

It's not fair, because the owner probably overcharged us... it's not fair beacuse probably most of the people who live there won't be able to have a dinner at Barakouda once in their life... it's not fair but it's still a starting point, and hopefully in the future a restaurant like this won't be owned by a French anymore but by a Togolaise guy!
