After some local trials this was the first dinner of new year for me at January 1st. When we go to the restaurant even it is not opened yet they arrange a place for us and kindly offer some mojitos! Cousine was perfect. Owner is from Morocco and she is visiting all the tables to see everything is ok, and also chief is coming out from kitchen and visiting tables. We thank to him for the great soup after 5 seconds who comes with a local guy and says please thank to him today he cooks the soup. It was very kind! Please try carpaccio and argentina style grill.
and the atmosphere is quite different from Dakar. Some of the tables are set at the glass and you can see perfectly lighted water under....After the meal they give us some fresh baked little brownies and cakes we had a little fight for them at the table, they were very delicious.. Must stop there...

Walking through the heavy grey entry door a garden area with water features opens up and occupies the minds as a first impression. The visitor has to walk over glass paths over the water and can either settle down in the garden or chose between a smoking or non-smoking air-conditioned dining room. Having the option for a non-smoking area is rare in Dakar and most welcome.
The food is excellent and presentation is stunning. Service is good and though the bill at the end is typically at the high end, I never felt it wasn't worth it. On the contrary - it's a treat
