There when you need it, the restaurant of the Institut Français is the perfect place to catch your breath, refresh, and refuel in its beautiful courtyard setting next to an immense baobob and all the cultural offerings (exhibits, performances in the amphitheater, etc.) of the center. Cold drinks, best coffees, and a delicious, versatile menu (from brochettes to burgers -- even veggie burgers -- and more).

Located in the heart of the city, it's the most charming place in Dakar, quite, in a beautiful garden at the French Institute. Ideal before a show or to refresh yourself during a hot afternoon. the food is simple and creative.

I usually take newcomers to Dakar to this place. It offers a terrific array of local and "toubab" food in a really nie outdoor (but under cover) setting. The Thiouf with Bissap sauce (Thiouf is grouper) is a big hit.

The servers are nice but this place gets really busy. We only go if we know we can block off at least two hours for lunch.

My colleagues and I went to this restaurant at around 8.30 pm for a light dinner. The place was bubbling with conversation and had a relaxing atmosphere. Sitting back, with a cold beer, I thought that we had made a good choice. Unfortunately, what followed was an average experience. After our first drink, the service became very slow. This was not due to any lack of willingness of the staff, there was simply not enough of them to meet the demand that evening.

My ordered of gambas with ginger and coriander was not so good. The sauce was full of flavour, however the prawns were overcooked and tough. The dish was tepid, with the exception of my side dish of rice, which was hot. My colleagues ordered different dishes but were also not impressed.
