“Delicious, but closed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Le huit had really great food, if a bit expensive. It has closed, however, so read no farther. Perhaps it was because no one could ever tell you where it was located. Maybe too elite?

“GOOD CAIPIRINHA”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

Very posh. Hard to believe you're in Afrika. So personally the atmosphere was missing something. Perhaps it was because we were allmost the only ones in the resto. Food was average. They forget to bring the rice that came with the fish. And the gnocchi asked without cheese was with cheese.
My caipirinha was great.

“the best in West Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2010

last week i was in Benin and i went to Le Huit a new fantastic restaurant
situated at 8th floor in a new building downtown.
Incredible Surprise!!!!
the restaurant could have a star Michelin if was situated in Europe.
Great cuisine Afro/Med with only fresh products and fantastic wines.
the location is absolutely outstanding with a 360° vieuw on the city,ocean and lagoon.
