I read the reviews & sought this place out. Maybe I hit a bad day? There was 1 other paying customer. The beer wasn't too long in arriving but it took over an hour for the food to arrive. This only arrived then because after an hour, I asked for the bill twice & was prepared to walk. Then the order was wrong. Instead of garlic prawns & chips, I got 2 x plates of chips & garlic shrimp & battered prawns!! It wasn't even nice. I think the problem was that there were about 10 friends of the bar staff there & all the energy was put into mucking about & playing music & talking loudly on phones. So an extremely poor effort even if you are on Gambian time. There are many more places where you can get service & food & quality so I'd give this one a miss. They also were trying to flog us various trips with them - hmm, it is possible that the trips are more organised than the restaurant but they couldn't get 2 plates of food out in an empty restaurant in an hour so up to you.

Thank you Omar for showing this little gem to us. Good food and a wonderful setting. The staff and the food were both delightful. Omar arranged a trip for us and we wernt expecting a fishing trip but I did catch two lovely fish and the chef at the resturant cooked them for us on the evening.
I know I caught the fish but they were cooked beautifully and tasted divine what a lovely Gambian experience.

Thank you Omar for an enjoyable experrience. Please visit the Sunshine bar you wont be disappointed.

Really lovely spot, well worth a visit. Chilled out atmosphere. Delicious food, try their homemade fish fingers.

They do reggae nights at the weekend which we unfortunately missed. We were told not to walk there at night due to lack if street lighting but you can get one of the tourist guides to walk you there safely.

We visited this bar and restaurant on a number of occasions, there were more locals than tourists here which is what we prefer, the food was good and reasonabley priced, we had lunch and a few drinks here one day and the bill was £10.00. We had an evening meal here aswell, for 2 courses and 2 drinks each it as just under £20. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming.
