We went there twice. First time we didn't even get served and decided to go somewhere else. Second time we ordered and waited for our food for 1h 20min and when it came it was all a big mess. Maroccan tagine was missing the couscous that was meant to come with it. Roasted pumpkin was actually steamed or boiled and oysters Kilpatrick came from a can and was terrible.

Very quirky cool place to eat overlooking the fishing market of Bakau. The stuffed baraccuda was delicious and the size of my head! Don't miss this place - so much better than the bigger more commercialised restaurants in Cape point and Senegambia.

We always call in here every trip but this time the kitchen was closed due to refurbishment so no food.
The owner and staff can't do enough for you and are very informative about the guest house and surrounding area.
Every visit you think that you've seen it all and then find something new a great place to spend a few hours.

This is the restaurant inside the bakau Guest house which has a huge terrace overlooking the fishing boat activity and market below. Beautiful panorama. Run by Canadian Egyptians who maintain a secret antique museum upstairs with great prices. A fun bar amidst exotic works of West African art.

Like a previous reviewer we first went here one afternoon to have a drink on the balcony while watching the fishing boats come in.
It's a great place to sit and watch the goings on.
It's quite a unique place on the inside and a bit of a surprise as it's not what we were expecting. It's full of carvings and big wooden furniture. And it has the biggest stereo we'd ever seen!
We went back for an evening meal which was lovely and really good value. Don't order too much for your meal though as they bring out loads of really tasty appetisers and flatbreads before your meal.
We'll definitely be going again next time.
