This restaurant is simply delicious. In the middle of downtown Dakar, once you find it you feel away from the city and are able to relax. You can sit inside or outside. I personally love going at night; the lights really give it a great ambiance. The food is delicious. I recommend ordering the "Mezze". It will allow you to... More

The best Lebanese food in Dakar! It is not a very upscale setting but the food stands out! The best falafel I have had anywhere in West Africa, and I travel a lot in these parts.. The atmosphere is generally friendly and easygoing and one can look forward to a nice evening at Farid..

Restaurant Farid is without a doubt the best restaurant I've had the chance to visit in a very long time. I honestly can't remember the last time I had such tasty and delicious food in a beautiful environment with 5* service and 3* price. Consistency: I went to the restaurant 5 times in 5 days and every aspect I mentioned... More
