This is good place to have an unpretentious but decent meal in the Ngor area of Dakar, five minutes from the airport. Familystyle place, with a relaxed ambiance. Don't be in a rush when you order a pizza, it will take some time. But the environment urges you to relax. It was the second time we went there and it was no disappointment at all. We surely will be back.

Great pizza with many good choices (loved the twist on four seasons they served) of classics and new options. Their menu also offers many other non-pizza options--- so everyone can find something. Open air, relaxing environment with simple decorations. Service was good, although the food was slow in coming, but worth the wait. For families, there is a play area for kids. This restaurant has been around a long time, and is a classic place for this part of Dakar (the 'burbs).

This is a good no-nonsense unpretentious pizzeria with a reasonable selection of other dishes, too.
Situated just behind the Shell station in Almadies-Ngor - it's one of the very oldest and most reliable simple fast food joints in Dakar with a regular clientele who go there when they want a simple meal out.
It's outdoors but has a roofing structure for Dakar's short rainy season and a lively paillotte bar. Beware of the risk of a few mosquito bites at dusk at some times of the year. Advise taking some mossie spray for your ankles!!
Friendly long-serving staff greet regulars and new-comers alike. Great for kids with a small play area and the pizza-makers are real characters who always welcome kids to come and join in making their own pizzas. Small and moderately priced wine-list.
A great place to go spontaneously for a drink, a pizza or a relaxed inexpensive meal between friends and with or without kids.

Please stop putting Emmental cheese in the pizza. It's disgusting! Pizza must be with mozzarella! Also, pizzas are greasy. Besides that, the place is nice and it's good to go with kids.

I recommend the place to eat pizza, the "italian tapas" and even the beef they serve. The only thing is that you MUST come with enough time in your hands to wait for your food. Every time I have been to this place, I have had a tasty food in front of me after the long wait!!
