My visit to Mali would not have been as great if I did not find this place. The food is very tasty I went there almost every day for lunch and dinner. The atmosphere, the service and the people are great. They care for their customers and their menu is decently priced compared to other nearby bars and restaurants that i visited once and probably won't again. They serve a variety of tasty food, from mezza to fresh made fire wood oven pizza, their entrees are to die for!
If you are looking for a fun night of drinking with friends and meeting new people and eating good food, this is the place to go.

Bamako's version of Casablanca's (the movie) Rick's cafe
An American lost in Africa own this nice tex-mex bar/restaurant
Food is great, thick menu for all tastes, and very good, but plan on spending at least 90minutes as service may sometimes be slow (but that's the case of most restaurants in Bamako).
Funny looking African waiters wearing cowboy hats and great karaoke nights on Wednesdays make Appaloosa the place to be.
If you feel lonely or want to talk, stay at the bar, beautiful bar mates, mostly Russians, will keep you company, you can look, but can’t touch :(. And be prepared to offer them some drinks.
Owner is easy going and can answer a lot of your questions if you're new in Bamako.
On your next trip, try this place, at least once, you won’t regret it.
The place was recently remodled and have a non smoking area.

I have lived in Bamako for a year or so, and Appaloosa was my regular hangout place all this time. The food was excellent, the steaks remind me of the time I lived in the US west coast. Pizza is amazing too, and it's the only place to find a decent Mojito in Bamako. Make sure to be there on Wednesday evenings, you don't want to miss the weekly karaoke night!

I live in Vermont, and I visited Appaloosa Restaurant while I was on a business trip and it was the most amazing experience ever! The food was to die for and the staff was awesome, with excellent customer service. I will defiantly visit Appaloosa again when I am in the area and I highly recommend it to all the tourist.
