“Refreshingly Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

It made a refreshing change to eat in a restaurant that presents African food in style. We were there on a very quiet night, but I really enjoyed the experience.
We drank a Vouvray wine which was truly magnificent, and I take my wine very seriously.
I liked the both the concept and the execution thereof, and will certainly go back there again.

“Different cuisine in Abidjan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Saakan is a fancier restaurant in Abidjan, offers a limited menu of relatively expensive dishes. The atmosphere is more exclusive than at other restaurants in the city. The service is professional, and the food was good. The deer outside are an attraction. A bit overpriced for its quality, but still, a nice place to go in Abidjan!

“Great food in a fun relaxed place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

I can see why this rates so highly. Nice vibe about the place, a good range of different types of African foods, and friendly attentive service. Live music - soft African drums and xylophone - and a reasonable wine list. Give it a try!
