“Good Food”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

This restaurant was convenient to my hotel, and recommended by the hotel manager. The menu had a nice variety of Senegalese dishes. I tried the chicken yassa, which is a spicy sauce with onions. The chicken was cooked well and the yassa sauce was very tasty. My family enjoyed their dishes too. This is a nice place to eat when you want something good, quick and inexpensive. The restaurant was clean and the service was friendly.

“Good for a quick meal”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Pizza dow is too sweet for my taste, the Chawarma too dry. Burgers are big, but with Eg!? The icecream cup, croissants and coffee were good, but a bit expensive.

“Lite Brunch”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

La Gondole is not a bad choice for a nosh near rhe popular Plage du Virage on the Route de l'Aeroport. It is located right at the major turn in the road where you can see the lovely beaches and surf before making the final approach to the Aeroport. La Gondole has a rather standard lunch counter/Ice Cream Parlour atmosphere. Go out the back door to access the terrace with a nice view of the surf. However, although part of the restaurant, the wait staff will not service this area unless the interior is completely filled.

La Gondole features various ice cream concoctions but it also has a line of salads, soups, sandwiches, Middle Eastern appetizers and crepes at reasonable prices. No alcohol. No really substantial meals. Quality is about average for restaurants catering to Western/European tastes. I would say that it's a decent stopover for families in the middle of the day.

“Fast food...”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

No taste at all. Everything is bland and fatty. no originality, better to go in a typical senegalese restaurant for the same price to eat fish or poultry.
