This restaurant was next to our hotel on the beach. Had a great variety of dishes and as a vegetarian I had a number of choices which made a lovely change from many restaurants. Service was wonderful and food great. This restaurant is a must visit while in Gambia. 😄😄😄

But ok for the money, don't expect to much. It is not the cleanest place and can only be reached when the tide is out without taking a boat over the river

We visited the restaurant one evening. The food was fine, well riced but even though there were at least four waiting staff and only four other customers we seemed to have a problem getting served.

Met new friends there for dinner. Good value food and drinks. Lovely views of beach and sea. Gets a bit chilly and windy in the evenings though. Would go again. Seem to have some nice bungalows at rear available to rent. Good beach scene during day as well.
