A glorious setting on a beautiful sunny day trip to Ile Goree. The food was great - we had the fish (simple but superb, just grilled) - and it was so nice just sitting and overlooking the beach, soaking up the sun rays. Great coffee as well. A must on any day trip - make sure you head there as... More

Chevalier de Boufflers is of the few restaurants that looks solid compared to those on the shore. Of course, it needs some restoration but overall not bad. We ordered beef cutlet and grilled local fish called "thof". Bot dishes were fine. The restaurant offers a couple of local wines, which are not bad, however red wine is served chilled.

Yeah, that's hardly worthy of a heading, but finding a decent wine on Gorée is work in and of itself. Lovely seaside tables, good food, and a waitstaff that want's to high-five you with each course delivery!

My traveling companion and I stayed overnight on Goree Island at the Chevalier de Boufflers and tried the restaurant, which had received very good reviews on TripAdvisor. Big mistake. The table linens were dirty and the food nearly inedible. We both ordered pasta dishes. The pasta tasted like soggy cardboard and the "meat" sauces--hers was supposed to be chicken and... More

That's what the people on the Corinthian (a cruise ship) advised. I tend to agree, though I didn't try any others. We ordered whatever stew was on for the lunch hour, and whatever fish. It was good. It wasn't cheap. Pretty much American prices, for people on cruise boats. Look out over the beach and watch the kids splashing in... More
