The place to be in Central Conakry, service is good and the place is nice, clean and relaxing. I have only tried the day's menu, never ordered 'a la carte'. I found the food rather mediocre. That said, it is still a classic place to have lunch, worth a visit.

A Conakry establishment. Opposite the Marche Niger in downtown Conakry, this restaurant is a relief from the heat and crowds outside. A French-style patisserie and chocolate shop downstairs, head up the spiral staircase into a lovely restaurant. Be careful though - open for lunch, but closed for dinner. Andre the owner ensures that standards are always high. Lunch selections are... More

The oldest cafe/resto in Conakry but still one of the best in town. From breakfast to dinner you can find tasty bites all day long. If in town, get a try especially desert and croissant.

And in the Conakry dining scene that is bereft of options, it is a can't miss. Went in a group, everyones meal looked good. Decent variety, good quality.

So the rooms are quaint and rather lovely. The menu is in italics. Almost the ideal place for a brunch, or simply to wind down after shopping at the market across the way. But you will need very deep pockets if you want to become a regular. Reassuringly expensive? I had an omelette (excellent), Hot Chocolate( OK), bread (fresh), orange... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants and the best you'll find in Conakry. Great food and service in a very nice environment. The manager is especially friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. Each day they have specials that are worth a try! And the desserts are amazing! They also make their own chocolate... More

This is right next to that marche de Niger by the orange shop. Excellent ice cream, really good bakery, the cakes are decent and french style, and the food which is only available in the daytime, is really top notch. Inventive french food, and the african classics done really well. Traditional but done with a talented chef and it's not... More

The breakfasts are a bit pricey, but very tasty! It's in a neat location and there are loads of delicious pastries to purchase at the counter.
