“Nice downtown Lebanese snack/ pastry store / restaurant”
Review of Chez Simon

Chez Simon
Ranked #31 of 114 Restaurants in Ouagadougou
Cuisines: Lebanese
Description: MY REVIEW: Chez Simon is a cheaper (for someone on a foreigner budget) Lebanese restaurant and pastry shop right downtown. It is located less than a block from the Splendide Hotel (turn right on the main road when you go out the door and walk 50m). At noon, you eat inside; in the evenings they also have tables set up out front in the parking area in front of the Avenue Kwame N'Krumah. Their food is simple but good - the daily menu is supposed to be a good deal - and all is very clean (I always eat their salads and have never gotten an upset stomach). It is a good option for an easy snack or lunch/dinner especially if you are staying at the nearby Splendide, Palm Beach or Yibi Hotels. And, being Lebanese, it is also a good option for vegetarians. Like the Verdoyant, it is one of the few low-to-mid priced restaurants where I always eat at when travelling to Ouagadougou.

Tucked into a strip of shops along Avenue Kwame N'Krumah, Chez Simon is a refreshing stopover for brunch, lunch or dinner. It's clean, it's cool, the food is fresh, the coffee strong, the service prompt. We dipped in for omelettes, fresh squeezed juice and pancakes - the latter dripping in honey and bananas - and we were impressed enough to be drawn bak a few hours later for lunch of shish taouk and salad. All tasty. In the evening, they have tables out on the front patio, so you can soak up some street ambience.
