“Good Hangout with Consistent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is the restaurant I go to with my family when I just don't want to go anywhere else. The food good, but the menu is similar to other menus in Burkina Faso with the exception of dessert. Verdoyant has the best dessert menu in town. Sometimes they have strawberry dessert out of season! The serving staff is friendly and attentive, but not annoying. There is only outdoor seating so it can be a bit hot. They do what they can with swamp coolers and fans, but it can still get a bit uncomfortable. The steak is good, but the pizza is better elsewhere. We do not order pizza when we go. They are closed for breakfast and the restaurant is easy enough to get to from the UN Circle. Overall it is a good place to go and eat with the family and enjoy a good meal with awesome dessert.

“Excellent pizzas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Some of the best pizzas I've ever had outside Italy. If you like thin crust, Le Verdoyant is your place. Crusts so thin they were barely even there, very good ingredients, very quickly made, in a nice, comfortable setting. I ate there several times in a two-week trip to Ouagadougou.

“Other than the tooth...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Yes, I had a friend find a tooth in his ice cream (kiwi flavor). But other than that, the food and service are really good. Prices are more reasonable than some places, and the ambiance is nice with the walled-off-from-the-road outdoor seating, as well.
