we went to le loft but it wasn't that exciting. The food was not bad but not remarckable. The musicwas a little bit annoying, maybe it's because I don't like jazz. the service was excellent.

I had two distinctly different experiences at Le Loft. The first time, because of its excellent reputation, I foolishly took the "sashimi rolls" which were that night's special. Big mistake, of course! The tuna was of dubious freshness, and both salmon and tuna were rolled around... celery!!! But, because the butler was kindness and professionalism personified, the red wine and... More

Fantastic food, really great staff. Madame Martin, the manager, makes the place feel something like a fine French dining room of 20 years ago - in Mali. Fantastic! The authentic cigarette smoke as some patrons (mainly French, obviously) light up for a post dinner fag might disappoint some diners, but to be honest, in this overly politically correct world perhaps...

I'd literally visited every restaurant in Bamako and was excited to try the infamous Le Loft, especially after reading the rave reviews. I have to say that there are MUCH better options in Bamako. This might be a terrific place to take elderly conservative eaters who can't tolerate spice and appreciate familiarity, but it definitely is not for an adventurous... More

The Loft is one of the best restaurants in Bamako. It is very carefully decorated so you get that elegant experience. I've found that in Mali it is best to get the local fish and to steer away from imported seafood. However, since the Loft has such a great reputation I made the mistake of risking it with the red...

A real surprise of a place, a little bit of Paris in Bamako!! The food was excellent as was the service. This place is a real surprise inside after you arrive and see the outside of the building!!! Trust me, this is one place you do not want to judge by it's cover.

环境很棒,非常适合商务休闲。食品种类稍少,但有款鱼非常不错。价格偏贵。最后甜品点的是冰淇淋,几乎都快化了,有些煞风景。Good environment, French style, food choice is a little less. The fish is delicious. Very suitable for romance. Very quiet place.
