I had a great fish there. Fresh, well prepared, a bit spicy. Served in a basic way but still tasty. It is hard to beat the cheap prices there, value for money is great here.

My girlfriend and I have been traveling for a while and have been trying all sorts of places but this place takes the cake! We both really enjoyed the food and will probably come back again before we leave Saint Louis :)

Best grilled fish i ever had an also the Senegalese Food is absolutely amazing. Each night we had three different meals and couldn't decide what was the best of it. And also the people there were very inviting and friendly.
