“Expat hang-out #1”
Review of Atlantic Bar and Restaurant - CLOSED

Atlantic Bar and Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 29, 2012

The all-time number 1 expat hangout in Sierra Leone. Come late (midnight), head straight for the bar by making your way past hordes of people, once bar side you order a plate of the house classic, the so called "dudu-shot" for your friends. Binge drink the dudu-shots and get with it! The place packs a decent party up to 2-2:30 in the morning when most people head of to some other late night venue.
Caution. The area outside is extremely insecure so make sure you have transportation arranged if you leave the place late. Do not walk towards Aberdeen on beach road regardless of lack of transport - In that case it is safer to walk to Lumley.

I like the Atlantic a lot - I had the fried baracuda and chips, and was pleased. I can't comment on the claims of being busy on the weekends as we went during the week and it was pleasantly "unpacked" - I can see how it would get busy, though: it's a nice space, plenty of room, the staff are great, and the breezes keep things comfortable (for leisure dining, anyway - If a party breaks out, the Freetown heat I'm sure would become a factor). All-in-all, the title says it all: nice place, good food, and friendly vibe.

Great bar and restaurant along Lumley Beach. Very popular among the expat crowd.

The expat place to go in the evenings and fills up on Friday and Saturdays. A nice location by the beach to catch that cooling sea breeze after you have been sweltering all day. Apparently, they have the best lobsters in Freetown but I stuck with a basic meal.
