Overall very good food and service. The communication took place in English which was pleasing. We chose the ceviche which was excellent, the grilled prawns , the ravioli with swordfish , grilled fillet of red snapper, and grilled lobster . For desert chocolate mousse. We...were content although it is a bit pricey.More

Went to this restaurant for dinner with a colleague and the atmosphere is nice. The service is nice too eventhough it was a bit slow (the food came 1 hour later after ordering). The fish was tasty and big enough to make you full. The...sides as well were good!More

Recommended for a cozy and delicious dinner. Friendly atmosphere, nice selection of fresh sea food, delicious meals, nice interior. Staff speak English. Very nice cocktails! However, only sea food is served, thus not a good place for vegans or meat-lovers.

Very cozy place with a nice location right on the beach, looking at the Isle de Ngor. We arrived early, before 7pm, and admittedly it took some patience until the kitchen was up to speed, but the food was completely worth the wait, a good...choice of very well done fish dishes. As a plus, the barkeeper was happy to show his skills by mixing off-the-menu cocktails, just as the whole staff was very friendly and helpful. I will be sure to return on my next visit to Dakar.More

I have to say the fish is fresh, food is delicious. But, honestly, after 50 min, still waiting for a "simple" ceviche ? Totally unacceptable. Either it comes from kitchens or from the waitress, I don't care. It's a symptom of something wrong.

Dear Olivier, We're so sorry you had a bad experience. It isn't normal to wait that time for a Ceviche, we will do our best to improve. Hope to see you another time.

A great place to unwind and enjoy fantastic fresh seafood. You can follow the catch-of-the-day all way from the fishing boats out front, through the open plan kitchen and on to your plate. The Cabane manages to perfectly combine haute-cuisine and home comfort. Start with...a pamplemousse ceviche and end with a mousse au chocolat...More

When I arrived it was the beginning of the evening and there was only couple of people at the bar. There were at least 2 staff behind the bar and 2 other girls sitting across. So total of 4 staff in the premises, but it...took me 5 minutes to be seen, and that happened only when I approached where they were and had to make noise to be seen (I am a petite person, but not invisible I guess!!). Finally one of the girls reluctantly got up and showed me to a table. When I asked for the menu, she showed me the chalk board in front of me and left!! As can be imagined, the chalk board needed explanations. Finally I had to go back to the bar and told them if there is no willingness to serve, I can go somewhere else, a young man decided to come and help. He also apologized. After ordering the food I was pretty upset. Waiting about 30 minutes, I got my fish, and I must say it was delicious, a sizeable portion, fresh fish and very nicely prepared. If I didn’t have the episode at the beginning, I would have thought this place to be super cool. I am hoping they would try harder to improve service.More

We were looking forward fresh fish & lobster. Both were way overcooked and the fish was probably frozen. No customer service, in the end even if we didnt more than half of our plates, we had to pay 100% of the bill. Service is way...below average & we didnt feel welcomeMore
