For 'african' food you must give this place a try. Prices are tourist prices. Very popular with tourists especially at night. Most reserve beforehand for dinner. Live music. Food is good. Portions big. Satisfied with everything: food, service, vibe.

We ordered a mix of stews with different local game, of which you wouldn't be able to order at home. The restaurant owner was extremely friendly and spent time talking with us. Highly recommended.

This is a place you go to experience local cuisine. We had a set menu. Larvae, worms, and sorghum was on the menu, along with chicken, beef knuckles, and peanut rice. Can't say I really enjoyed the food but can say it was fairly bland....More

We were a diverse group of travellers parting ways. This was our last occasion together. We sat outside and had lots of laughs recounting stories from our time together. Singing along to the lively band and not wanting the moment to finish. If it were...More
