This used to be an atmospheric little beach bar, with leather settees and live music. In recent years it has been "improved", to provide more covers and more space. As a result it now lacks atmosphere (not unusual for the Gambia) and is frequently almost deserted, although the addition of an open air extension overlooking the beach provides a nice... More

We had dinner here a few times during our holiday. The service is pathetically slow with some of the most miserable waitresses I have ever seen. The food when eventually it arrives is quite good, but this part of the world it is overpriced. But you are something of a captive market so have to pay the price.

Lovely place and good atmosphere nicely busy the night we went. Starters of Dancing shrimp and Indonesian Sate great. The mains of Halibut and the Ocean peppersteak fillet of fish was amazing. A truly lovely place to visit and we'll be back.

Ate here twice on our trip. Both times the meals were excellent, well cooked and a big choice. Service can be slow especially at busy times e.g. after 8pm. A little dark with mainly candle lighting. Prices similar to pub meal in UK.

Great food in a nice setting (only slight down side is the taped bull frogs, which are really annoying). Very reasonably priced with good service

Amazing restaurant , the surroundings gorgeous , staff just fabulous and the food .. It's the best , I had tiger prawns and it's the nicest meal I've had in a long time . It is a bit more expensive than other eating places in kotu but it won't break the bank . Try this restaurant .

Close to the end of the Kotu Stream Road, this restaurant is well worth a visit. Its more expensive than a lot of other local restaurants but the food is excellent and presentation very good. We tried the Chicken Satay starters followed by steak in pepper sauce and the Ladyfish washed down with a bottle of red. The noise in... More
