I had the vegetarian bean dish and it was very tasty, service was prompt and it’s a sure value to eat there for the price. Give it a try, you will not regret it.

This cosy restaurant offers a great variety of West African delicacies, including a range of vegetarian plates. The food tastes delicious and the portions are huge. Plus, it's absolutely affordable, the quality-price ratio is great. I had a really nice time at the restaurant, the...service was amazing, the people really friendly and they were super helpful with giving recommendations. I can only recommand this restaurant and I'm pretty sure that I'll be going back soon :)More

My coolleagues and I were desperately looking to try the dish from this beautiful country (the Dchebou djen - not sure if the spelling is correct) But we were really mind blown, it was tasty and one plate is enough for two. I also did...not have a number and the service allowed me to use their phone. the place is so nice and allows you to meet other people while you eat, such an African feel, it is like a little house or dining room. A must goMore

It's one of the best restaurants in Dakar. The menu is quite varied and all the dishes I've tried were good. The service can be quite slow though.

One of my best places to eat local dishes (rice based). Plus the serve the African-way: generously! So if you want to taste rice and fish, mafé, ... Loutcha is the place to be.

Came here while in Dakar with my wife and daughter. Overall good meal and would recommend the place for anyone looking for some local food. Pros: good food and reasonable prices Cons: went there in the evening once they opened up for dinner at 7:00pm....There was no lighting in the entire place save for candles at each table. This made for an interesting experience to say the least. Next, I nearly locked myself in the bathroom which also had no light, as I was unable to find the latch on the lock for a few minutes. So if heading here maybe try for lunch while it’s still light outsideMore

We wanted to taste some local food on our only free night in Dakar and this place came highly recommended. It has a lovely family feel with a diverse mix of people and an incredibly vast menu (nothing they don’t have, really) for unbeatable prices....The choice is huge and so are the portions. I had a whole fish grilled and served in some local way on manioc with fresh chopped veggies and it was very nice but far too much. No matter how much I ate, the plate still looked full. My colleague had jollof rice with veggies and fish which was also very good. The red wine we had wasn’t great and the waitress was a bit impatient with us but we had a nice evening and are glad we went there.More

Food here was really great and so cheap we queued for a while but well worth it. Local Senegalese food and beer the best choice.

This is a lively, friendly, casual place. Tables crowded, but in a fun sort of way. Lots of bustle. Service is good but note that sometimes it’s fast, and sometimes slow! Menu is huge, so I recommend you focus on House specialities. There are vegetarian...options too. Dishes are full of flavor and portions are huge! Surprise: they will provide take out containers for leftovers. Diverse crowd. Family friendly. Definitely a place to go for a solidly good food experience in a lively atmosphere.More

The Senegalese dish was excellent. The place was lively and had a great atmosphere. It is the back room that matters so don’t be discouraged if the front rooms are empty of guests.

It is a nice restaurant with a very personal interior. A large and varying meny with seemingly good dishes. The service was somewhat lazy but the food is given a very well deserved three. And the portions are huge. All in all its a restaurant...worth visitingMore
