“One of the best upscale places in Cotonou”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have been here on many occasions. It is my preferred venue for bringing business visitors for dinners and cocktails. While fairly new, it has quickly gained a good reputation. The food is European/continental cuisine, with a good mix of beef, fish and poultry. Everything from starters to desert is delicious - fresh ingredients.

The place is upscale, on first floor is a nice lounge with a good selection of various alcohols and cocktails - which by the way, they do a very respectable job creating. Upstairs is the restaurant section - seating, i guess, around 100 people or so. The place is beautifully decorated and atmosphere is very pleasant. Waiters are well trained and are very attentive.

Should i mention just one dissapointment, it is the steak, which, while tasty, is small, thin and not very tender. Fortunately there are lots of other great dishes.

Prices are in the high end for Cotonou, but generally not outrageous. You will pay approx USD 15-20 for most main courses.
