My family and I were ready to eat but we don't speak much French. Being adventurous I led my family into this open air but very nice Resturaunt. Once inside one of the wait staff quickly realized we didn't speak French and explained the menu for us to the details. The brunch was only 5000 CFA per person and the... More

This restaurant was conveniently located for us from the Rhino Resort where we stayed. It is situated just off the main roundabout at Saly. Consists of an outside seating area, inside the restaurant, or in a raised terrace location. Mainly used this for lunch, but did go there one night. Food was varied and always cooked to our liking. Excellent... More

In this restaurant you have the choice of Lebanese, French, Italian and Vietnamese food which is great in Saly since you don't have a lot of "exotic" food! I have try French and Italian and it was just ok not the best not terrible just ok.

We ate here for lunch. Food is good, usual range of Senegalese and European dishes. Service a bit slow. Lots of tourists but a few locals which is usually a good sign.

My all time favourite restaurant in Mbour. Whenever I go to Mbour, I stop into Riviera - for coffee, a cocktail, lunch, and/or dinner. It's that kind of place that is casual, unassuming, warm, and unpretentious. The food is, say...7/10, not great, but good enough. And the good enough factor coupled with live music on the week-ends, friendly staff, and... More
