3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The food and service is fine The menu is similar to every where else in the area. It was almost empty when we went just one other table being used. They have live music 3 times a week unfortunately not the night we went.

nice walk up to it didn't get bothered by any of the bumsters, thought the food was just average and expensive for gambia really, but couldn't fault the service we had all very friendly.

“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We visited this restuarant twice whilst holidaying in the Gambia. The food here is outstanding...both times i shared the fish platter of red snapper, baraccuda and lady fish with my friends which is meant to be for two but it was more than enough for 3 of us (1000 dalsi).The sauce provided with this was amazing and the fish was cooked perfectly. The restaurant provides entertainment on a monday, wednesday and saturday with an african band playing british songs. The singer Victoria is amazing and the band were great too. We spent the whole night up dancing with all the diners and the waiters. The staff are extrememly friendly and it offers a great service. Definately worth a visit.
