In Lagon1 you can enjoy amazing fish, seafood and all sort of meats. Their grilled fish are just amazing. Service is excellent and the views are fantastic. Best place in Dakar by far!

I've eaten at the Lagon 1 now for 24 years and have multiple reasons to just keep coming back! The restaurant is family owned and hands-on managed and it shows! Diverse food selection, of course good seafood ranging from simple to exoctic, but also diverse...More

I have eaten in this same place for more than 20 years. The food keeps getting better and the staff are always fantastic. I had a good seafood salad and then fish fillet. I had no space for any deserts so settled for an espresso....More

I had a bloody mary and the seafood pasta. Both were excellent and the wait staff was very kind. The whole place has an upscale vibe so if you are looking for a dive bar this is not for you. The view of the ocean...More
