Description: This simple restaurant is right on the beach, the only non-hotel on the water in this area. They serve simple local dishes of fish, chicken and rice, as well as local beverages such as bui, made from baobab fruit. We arrived there a little early for lunch but it was packed when we left, a mix of ex-pats and locals. Its a nice lunch spot, sitting under trees looking out over the ocean

“Very tasty filet de Lotte”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

I had a brief stay at the hotel inside Magic Land (...which should be the topic of its very own special review...) and needed a quick bite before heading to the airport. I was hesitant because it was evening time and there isn't a lot of lighting. I couldn't see a thing, but the wait staff were very friendly and after a typical wait time (not excessively slow, but not very speedy either), I was served a delicious filet of monkfish with creole sauce. It was lovely...delicious...wonderful grilled flavor of fish and the creole sauce was a perfect mixture of savory and spice. I would definitely go back again for that dish. The place was fairly busy for a Thursday night...seems to be a favorite among Dakarois. It is located just up the beach from the fish market, so how much fresher could it be? It was a very tasty dinner.
