I couldn't afford to dine here but wanted to stand on the westernmost tip of the African continent. I was stood on the rocky beach eating places to my left and right. Waves strangely calm with a menacing streak. The souvenir handmade artisans stalls arranged in a cul de sac just off the ocean behind the little strip of sand... More

We had a very delicious lunch here. Service was fast and friendly. Open air dining under shade - even on a hot day, it was pleasant with a nice breeze blowing through.

There is a small beach, although it is flooded at high tide. Really the attraction is the super fresh street food. Don't go to one of the mainstream restaurants, the food from the stalls is excellent. Pick your seafood and watch them grill it. No better way to spend time in Dakar

this was a high end joint with top brand cocktails and nice fusion menu. they are just across from the more low-end (plastic chairs, but direct ocean view) seafood restaurants.

I've been in couple of restaurants here in Senegal, and this one is not the best one. For sure not worth its price... The fish was dry and salad without taste...

Parking is challenging, but once you're past that, heavenly food. The location is comfy but unspectacular. Recipies and ingrediants tickle the palpit. Seafood in all forms are presented well. My personal choice: Carpaccio of "Capitaine" Fish platter a big draft Flag
