“Our favourite restaurant in Kololi”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We always go to Jojo's at least twice when we are in The Gambia. It is our favourite restaurant in Kololi. The food is delicious and well presented. The setting is good as is the service. Although a little more expensive than some of the nearby restaurants, it is not expensive by UK standards. For starters and main course with wine, sparkling water and tips, we spent the equivalent of £50 for the two of us. One of the big attractions is the live music. There was a local jazz band the nights we were there playing excellent music. This is not your loud intrusive music but subtle and clever, a real treat for the jazz lover.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Good looking spacious restaurant. However we found the band somewhat loud and overpowering. The food was quite expensive and fairly ordinary. Their is better value elsewhere.

“Disappointing.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Fab setting, but we had to wait nearly an hour for our meal which had been served up to couple sitting at adjacent table. Complimentary drink given at this point. When meal did arrive, it was not up to standard. The steak was tough and tasteless. So disappointing.
