Lunch was so good, we had to come back for Dinner. I had the duck both times. The Nems were also especially good. Thanks again.

The nuns who run this Eau Vive (there is also an outlet in Ouagadougou) will ensure you get very nice food, while sitting in a peaceful garden which, that night, was also lit by a bright moon. A very pleasant experience.
