“Great Lebanese in Dakar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant, like many in Dakar, was behind a high wall, closing out some of the less desirable sounds and smells of the city. Once inside the open air patio area, you are transported to the Middle East. The servers and hostess were fantastic and the mezes were delicious. I shared a wonderful evening there with a great friend and couldn't have asked for a better setting. Highly recommended.

“If you like Libanese cuisine...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

All Libanese dishes are top quality; non Libanese food is excellent too. The service is great, the atmosphere too. It is not for nothing that this restaurant, although it should be considered a hotel restaurant is one of the most popular in Dakar. Well done to Mr. Milan and his family! A well deserved success in town.

“Enchanting & Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

While I am not an expert on Mediterranean cuisine, I do eat it at restaurants 2 - 5 times per year. I enjoyed our visit to Farid. The food was served in many courses and was so bountiful that we simply could not even try some of the specialties. Everything we did try was wonderful and the atmosphere was truly enchanting...especially the water feature, the lovely table visits by the manager and the overall ambiance on a mild night. It is like a step into another world.

“Nice ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Though the food is normal the ambience is very nice and beautifully done. One doesn't feel like sitting in such a crowded town centre. Seems to be popular among local Lebanese expatriates.
