This is the place to be if you want to enjoy fine cuisine in Dakar. With a life band playing soft music on the background you can enjoy the you dinner in a very relaxing ambiance. The personnel is welcoming and engaging but sometimes the wait for your dinner can be somehow long that need improvement!

Fine dining in a pretty place. A little pricey, but presentation looks great and atmosphere is relaxing. Live band on Saturday nights. Deserts are to die for.
