This little place, down an alley in the Vallon area of Deux Plateau, claims to be an "American" restaurant and, according to local rumor, the owners used to work in Atlanta, GA. If true, then that experience has produced a generally good result, but with some quirks. The restaurant is spotless and the food is tasty (if you find yourself craving a burger and fries, this is the place; the fries, in particular, are outstanding and are served in cute little fry baskets). There's quirky selection of "American" cocktails -- French Kiss, etc. The seafood is fresh. But somewhere along the line, the owners decided that "American" food can include quesadillas, so I think that maybe the owners worked at a TGI Friday's. Just a guess. Anyway, it's worth a visit. Excellent service.

I used to think that the term "American Gastronomy" was a "non sequitor", just as the French think the English can't cook, most Brits think that American food is boringly unimaginative, and comprise burgers and steaks; usually several in a day. Well Norima was an eye opener for me!! Not only is the decor and setting fantastic, the food is brilliant, very imaginative, delicious and exciting. The owners and their team offer first class service, always cheerful, always a smile.

The menu is varied, and offers traditional and non-American dishes. This young couple deserve aall the success they can get.

A lovely little restaurant, beautifully laid out and decorated. The service is prompt and efficient. The menu ....good ideas particularly Sunday brunch but it does not live up to expectations partly because of the main items required which may not be available in Abidjan. No you cannot have bagel and lox served on an hamburger bun and you cannot substitute American beacon with French ham, please. They get my vote for trying though.
