“Excellent stylish design but pricey restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Rysara restaurant is a very modern, stylish design place in a residential area. For lunch, it was a perfect place, with a very modern decoration, nice staff and delicious dishes.
Food was very tasty, nicely presented, with delicate flavours... French cuisine with an exotic touch.
The restaurant was 2/3 empty, the other customers looked like upper class business men and women. Ambiance was classy, discrete and elegant.
With a main course, 1 dessert for 2 people and 1 coffee each, we still had a bill around 20 000 CFA per person. It is pricey, but the place and the food quality worth it.
Next stay in Dakar, definitively I am coming back to Rysara restaurant!

A very modern, chic hotel - stacked stone, glass and chrome. It is a small boutique hotel in the southern area of the city in the "embassy zone" where a lot of the embassies, consulates and consular staff residences are. It offers you a nice escape from the gritty reality of African travel. Keep the shades in your room closed and your could be in Zurich, London or San Francisco - open them and you're back in Dakar. No pool, spa or fitness center - but if you want a refreshing break with a taste of western sensibility and quality, you can't go wrong with the Rysara. Plan on a good 30 minutes to/from the airport.

Room Tip: The higher the better - floor One (second floor) rooms are barely above street level. Floor four ro...

After spending five days at the hotel on a business travel, I can say that the Rysara Hotel is a very comfortable and convenient place for business people as well as for tourists. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. Excellent taste in decoration and service. The Restaurant menu is wide and delicious!! I strongly recommend it!!
