Have been there with my family in May 2016. Setting is very nice at the beach. But our small twin kids (15months) were not allowed to play in the sand beside the table, which had some shadow - instead we were asked to go with them on the nearby playground - which was fully in the sun - so we...

I want there with colleagues during my last stay in Cotonou. We arrived around 8h15 pm and we got our food an hour and a half later. The prices are high for Cotonou, and I guess you pay for the location, because the food was not fantastic. We had four dorades, since it was the only fish available. The fish... More

I have been here several times but never reviews it. It's located by the Sea in an area called Quartier Jak. I used to stay in a hotel beside the restaurant. It's open air. And the bar is on the opposite side of the street. It's a quiet neighborhood and very serene. At evenings there is music sometimes live band.... More

Good ambiance and good service. No hassles. The tables are set up on a clean raked beach. Some in the sun and some in the shade. The time I was there, there were few customers and no riff raff. A quiet place to relax on the beach. A large selection of pizza. Mine was good.

I ended up in the Biergarten after a stroll on the beach. It is located superbly ln the beach. The menu is huge, the food is prepared adequately. The setting is very nice, the restaurant and facilities clean. If i had my kids and wife with me, we probably would have ended up there every day. Having said this, the... More

The restaurant is just off the beach where there is a beached ship. The tables are set on the sand, great ambiance. The pizza may be the best in Cotonou. The service is slow but friendly.

This place is unique - excellent ambiance: luxury restaurant "built" (or should one say "designed") in the beach sand. You order cocktails and food from a menu as thick as a book (in German and French), then sit and sip your cocktails on the sea edge while watching the waves and ships coming in to dock. Waiter calls you back... More

Honestly I don't recall that much about the food because we were in a large group, so the service was slow and everything was chaotic. But the location and atmosphere are excellent, so I would definitely recommend it for that at least.

Located in the Akpakpa quartier, the Biergarten offers a great dining experience right on the beach. The menu is vast with a good selection of meats and seafood. I had the prawn/avocado salad as a starter - it was sumptuous. Grilled fish for mains, accompanied by a glass of chilled white. Live music added to the ambience. Prices may be... More
