Some of the best and freshest seafood in the Almadies/Ngor area, prepared in a variety of mostly European styles. They also have the best sorbet/gelato on the beach and a great view of the Ngor island and bay. Their vegetarian options are poor to non-existent, which seems strange in this decade.

My colleague and I were referred to this gem by a local expat. The outside is a bit unassuming when first arriving, but one you are inside it's quaint and refreshing. I don't speak French and was pleasantly surprised to find the waiter could speak English. As for the food, I started off with sauteed shrimp and calamari and they... More

This resto is situated in the posh Almadies neighbourhood. There is both inside and outside seating. Occasionally a live band plays on Friday nights. The service in this establishment is however quite spotty. Sometimes one needs to call the waiters several times before service is rendered. The food can also be at times a hit or miss affair. I recommend... More

We love this little place for the freshest seafood on town. One of our favorites in Dakar. Go for the espadon when they have it and the oysters are good too.

A great place for seafood in Dakar. Used to be much less expensive but recently prices have risen a lot.

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

Consider your restaurant as your second home. Simplicity and convenience, these are our priorities. Come with friends, family, and enjoy the beautiful landscape by the sea, overlooking the island of Ngor.
Enjoy the freshness of our fish caught directly by local fish wholesalers or directly by customers of our fishing center Atlantic Evasion.
