“A must for dinner in Cotonou”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

This place is unique - excellent ambiance: luxury restaurant "built" (or should one say "designed") in the beach sand. You order cocktails and food from a menu as thick as a book (in German and French), then sit and sip your cocktails on the sea edge while watching the waves and ships coming in to dock. Waiter calls you back to your table when food is ready. Great food! Great Service! As it is outdoors, it is much better in the evening than in the day due simply to the tropical weather. If you have only one dinner opportunity in Cotonou, this is the place to go to!

“Excellent location and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Honestly I don't recall that much about the food because we were in a large group, so the service was slow and everything was chaotic. But the location and atmosphere are excellent, so I would definitely recommend it for that at least.

“Great food, on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Located in the Akpakpa quartier, the Biergarten offers a great dining experience right on the beach. The menu is vast with a good selection of meats and seafood. I had the prawn/avocado salad as a starter - it was sumptuous. Grilled fish for mains, accompanied by a glass of chilled white. Live music added to the ambience. Prices may be on the high side, but worth it.
