Two items out of three selected were not available. Would not have been a problem, but we were only informed very late. Management were indifferent. Plenty better fare to choose from in the area.

The restaurant had very fresh seafood, It was very delicious, right on beach with a beautiful view. I had major concern with flies!! Too many!! I was told to get use to flies in Africa, but we can still keep them out of the restaurants. Especially one like this were the food was delicious!!

The restaurant is in NGOR village, where they used to have annual competition for fishing. It is also a Hotel. It has a sand beach and is a quiet place at evening or night. Fish is good compared to its price. They have also a bar. Service is good to average.

I returned this month to la Cabane du Pecheur right beside Ngor Beach - having not eaten there for quite a while - and so was apprehensive as to whether I'd still find it as good. I'm really pleased now to report the welcome remains as warm as ever and the fresh fish just as simple and succulent and well... More

The restaurant is just outside the old little fishers village and we have a passed it a few times. But this time we went for dinner because we wanted to know how it really was there, we had heard some good feedback. If you don't expect luxury you can quickly find your way and have a seat with a view... More

Now after 2 weeks in the country I can appreciate the delicious fresh fish they serve. I had doubts about the place after reading mixed reviews, but going there wasn't disappointment, the opposite. I had the best fish meal for my entire trip . Recommend!

Overpriced and no credit cards accepted. Nice view during daylight but at night no special feelings. Smell from the kitchen of old oil.

Glad to see that the owners changed since our last visitSS. Yes, this is a place people like to invite guests to because of its reputation. But when we ate there the last couple of times (because we couldn't change the venue - we were invited) we were surprised by the mediocrity. Recently we learned that the restaurant changed owners...

Visited here last night. The food was great but decor needs to be updates. I had fruit de mer pasta which was lovely. It had many types of seafood in a light creamy sauce. My partner had grilled prawns. These were also very good. I'd certainly go again. Lovely view of the beach too.
