“Good French cuisine in a boat atmosphere”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

Owners from Corsica will give you a taste of authentic French cuisine. The decoration makes you feel you are in a nice boat. Even the bathrooms are well decorated.
At the entrance, there are many plaques of the many personalities which have visited the restaurant: Senegalese members of government, French actors & singers, sportsmen.
They also have a small private beach for their customers.
A good address.

“By the ocean”
Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

This nautical themed restaurant has a great location. It is really nice to be able to sit by the ocean sipping on one of their many excellent cocktails. However the food is average. The seafood usually overcooked. That is too bad because they serve some really good quality jumbo shrimps they call Camerones.

“Nice food, great ambiance”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Located on the Corniche near the Pullman and Novotel hotels. Ambiance was great, you can eat indoors in A/C comfort or on the pier under a large umbrella, with sea breezes to keep you comfortable. Take a look at the memorabilia as you enter, one of the owners was quite a renowned diver.

Food is above average, and somewhat pricey, but the ambiance makes up for it. Very nice spot to relax over a pleasant meal. Suggest making a reservation during busy hours.

In other cities, they might only rate a very good, but in Dakar, this restaurant stands out and deserves excellent.

“Seafood on the sea”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Arrived just before sunset and had a beautiful meal and was treated to very attentive and efficient service. The nauatical decor (fish nets, etc) could be viewed by some as tacky but they pull it off very well and it feels authentic. I've now been several times and the food is excellent. Given the setting on the sea, cant think of anywhere else in Dakar I would rather have dinner.

“Nice scenery!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

It's a beautiful restaurant for lunch! It has a beautiful scenery over the sea and decoration is nice too. Food is great a little bit expensive but is worth to try it! Service is very good.
