Excellent shrimps in curry sauce (not very hot, but elegant) for starter, then grilled prawns (very good) and finally brochettes (both chicken and beef). The food was divine and the wine very good. Don't miss this place !

The best food we´d had in Senegal so far. And not very expensive either. We went here two nights in a row. Had fish and beef. Fish was probably the better. Very friendly staff and owners, very french (which also means not speaking english?). Would...More

Nice decor, very friendly host from Belgium! We had a tuna tartare for starter and it was delicious, the wine was good and chilled. The entrees were very good as well. Very good place to have lunch or dinner in La Petite Cote!
