Food is ok but some of their seafood gone off a few times. Fills up with ladies of the night and criminal types, great people watching,, maybe not for dinner...

I know this place from previous visits in dakar. the food and service are always good standard - I didn't experience this time something extraordinary. but also to explain with the fact that it was on a Sunday night and new (weekly) menu will be launched on Mondays. worth to come back on other weekdays !
