A couple of us were vegetarians and in the menu, there was only one vegetarian offering- Couscous Vegetarian and they decided to order that and the other 3... More

We wanted a break from our normal Dakar diet of rice, meat, & veggies & so decided to give Le Ryad a try. We got...couscous, meat, & veggies. :) Regardless, the flavors & unique Moroccan treats made for a memorable night out in a lovely setting. Service was outstanding, with attentive staff who took care to ensure that everything was... More

Restaurant moved from the very cosy and charming place in Les Almadies to a much bigger spacious home in Le Virage. It is ideally situated on the corner in front of the roundabout with plenty of parking. Inside is authentically decorated with antique pieces from Morocco. Tables and dining sectors are well placed. The menu is a mix of authentic... More

This restaurant has moved from "Les Almadies" to "Le Virage", to much better and large facilities. The décor is nice,sober but with good taste, the seatings are confortable. Staff is friendly and this time the owner (i guess) also came to welcome us. Food is good (even if i had already eaten better, there) and not too expensive. Dessert list... More

During a recent stay in Dakar, I was very impressed with the taste, flavor and freshness of the cuisine of several restaurants visited over a two week period. Le Ryad stands out in my mind as one of the most memorable. The atmosphere is authentic Moroccan and Saadia, the owner greeted us warmly as we entered the restaurant for lunch.... More

Firstly, this comforting 'home' is a family run restaurant and you feel the love and the love of food the moment you enter. Dakar is a hectic city and Le Ryad is a spacious rest from it all over lamb shanks and mother's lamb jus n' stewed carrots with cous cous that hits the texture just right. They have some... More

Although the owner is from Morocco, they serve all kind of dishes a la carte. The quality is good, service is good. The owner is always present to see if you are satisfied. Great place for dinner at evening or for a drink outside bar in open air with friends.

Several friends recommended Le Ryad and we weren't disappointed. Good, experienced servers, large portions of well-prepared food, and a lovely ambiance. Really, really nice. We'll definitely be going back soon.
