Enjoyed the food and the location but there is an arrogance to the waiters I don't really like. They ignore you in the beginning and in the end they even SUGGESTED we give a tip, which I dislike.

Perfect seaside setting with delicious food preparations, excellent seafood! Great cocktails. A must if in Dakar, Lagon 1 is renowned for its celebrity visitors and consistent fine dining.

Very nice restaurant out over the water in quiet part of Dakar. I can recommend and they have both inside and out. Private beach with service.

This was perhaps the most expensive meal that we had during our 25 days in West Africa... but it was worth it. The staff are super helpful and accommodating, and the service is of a very high standard. The food - just wonderful. This place is ideal for a special occasion or event! You can dine inside or out, and the atmosphere is great.
Super extensive menu, and of course seafood is the theme here. Portions are huge, so beware and perhaps share!
This place gets quite busy as the evening progresses, so perhaps book ahead if you want to be sure of a table.
I would happily return.

Although location is beautiful with a perfect outside seating to look at the sunset or at the sea. The service and food are very disappointing. All comes with a hefty price tag.
