the atmosphere is super, very nautical. Restaurant is perched over the water, dine inside or out when the weather is warm. Best oysters in the city. Food is tasty. They have english menus, just ask. Only had one snooty waiter who prefers French speakers...

Very nice atmosphere. Inside it's decorated like a ship. But sit outside if you can, the sea and lights are great. Have the grilled shrimp or camerones, they are awesome.

Whereas they took ages to serve the food, I've been told that it's not normally like that. Food really good and lovely sea view. Not cheap but worth to go

Yes. it seems you get fresh seafood. However for what you get is for sure way overpriced. The portions are small. That being said it is very tasty. I like fried whole fish and they were hesitant about accommodating that since all their menu is grilled. They finally did but was not up to par. Like I say, you can... More

Lovely place for relaxing lunch. Nice service and beautiful views, however food bit overpriced for it. We found it bit boring. Overall worth visiting but perhaps just for a drink!

This lovely nautical-themed restaurant and bar has a long and wide terrace that projects into the sea. There is a small private beach with a lush green backdrop that can be accessed for a fee. Inside the place is stylishly decorated and it all looks clean and fresh. The food was decent and the staff were all lovely. Lagon 1... More

We read and heard a lot about this place before going and it certainly met expectations. We went for lunch and had a mix of seafood and brochettes. The decor and location are gorgeous, the food is very good and the staff were super nice. Hard to beat seafood on the pier in an elegant setting. Well worth a visit... More

Very nice sea food restaurant by the ocean on the east cost pf dakar overlooking Goree island. The food is very nice (try the sea food mix grill! Or the king prawn). The outdoor venue is fantastic

I'm vegetarian and my pasta was average (after all it is a seafood restaurant) but my co-diners really enjoyed their fish. The ambience is really excellent and the staff are very responsive.

Lagon is great for the amazing setting right on the sea! It is of course a focus on sea food but the experience is much beyond the food alone! The service is great and the waiters take effort on explaining the options available with passion! Veg options are limited in cases like mine where I also do not eat seafood... More
