I've been there after having consulted TripAdvisor, being the first time visiting Dakar, without knowing where to go for a dinner together with good friends. It has been indeed an excellent fish meal with the best oysters we ever eated, fresh, big with best sea flavor. Hope to return back for another good dinner.

On a beautiful day a table on the jetty in the sun is a wonderful spot. There are great views over the sea, Goree Island and the presidential palace. Make sure to arrive early to get a good table. Service is mixed, some waiters are better than others, faster than others and more knowledgeable than others, etc. Mostly though service... More

if you are not into seafood this is not a place for you! The Seafood is absolutely delicious here. Staff and restaurant are themed in a maritime way. very quaint. Served by a Captain and welcomed on board the Lagon ship... nice view of the ocean with a little private beach to relax during the day.

Wonderful restaurant set on a peer, water gushing underneath you and an aquatic team all around you carefully put together by the French owner who is an avid fisherman and ensures the best fresh produce. Service is relaxed but very attentive, food is plain but well executed. Never disappoints. The list of famous people immortalized on plaques leading to the... More

Not cheap to Dakar standards, but excellent food, very nice spot, great chat with owners. If in Dakar and not on a too tight budget, this is spot not to be missed. Visited 3 times (2x 2012, 1x2017)

At any time of the day, you can enjoy a very nice view of the sea, share a delicious meal or dessert. Cocktail are also part of amazing discovery either for the decoration like a cruise boat.

Located alongside the water, you feel very removed from the rest of the city. The decor makes you feel like you are in a boat, and closeby you have a small private beach. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating to your needs and the food is healthy and delicious. The place specialises in sea food but they can accommodate... More
