What an amazing location, right on the beach and over the water/surf. The inside of the restaurant is built like a boat-- and so well designed/decorated. My favorite spot, however, is on the back terrace in open air, right over the water where you can hear the surf breaking throughout your meal. Great for drinks/snacks or a full dinner. Amazing seafood--- the best in Dakar. Great menu options for all courses, and good selection of alcoholic (and non) drinks. Service is excellent. Cannot praise this restaurant enough--- i always visit when in Dakar!

This is a great sea food restaurant, with delicious food, a nice small beach in a nice part of the city. And it is not an expensive one given the value you get out of it.

We liked the restaurant, and we went twice for dinner during our 4 night stay. But it was unfortunate that they did not have enough choice of fish. Nevertheless, the grilled fish was great with the vegetables. Juice de Bouye is my favorite, while I am not a fan of ginger juice. We also tried robster, and it was satisfying. You have to ensure that you will bring a big wallet with you!

Loved the atmosphere of the place; food was ok a bit cold by the time it arrived. But there is a good feel to the place; I think mainly cos of the interesting decor

Nice food, lovely location, just pleasant especially now it is so hot in Dakar. It's quite funky with all its portholes etc, and the food is good. Of course it is not cheap, but treat yourself.
