This is a great restaurant, and if I lived there I would go all the time. It has a large menu with a wide range of plates. Our group of 6 liked just about everything we got - although warning that the appetizers are pretty small. I would recommend the medallion fillets with mashed potatoes. Fantastic service too.

The eating area is well laid out and does not feel crowded. The service was very good, although the restaurant was not that busy when we went there. We had the oysters and the spicy chicken strips as starters. Both were very tasty, although as mentioned elsewhere, the portions were quite small. For the main we both had Captain fish. My wife felt the coconut curry version was not spicy enough, but the owner/head waiter who had come across to ask how we were finding the meal (for the starter as well as the main course) supplied an additional pot of sauce. My steamed fish in banana leaf with garlic, ginger and chilli was the best course I have eaten so far in the Gambia. Overall there was a good choice on the menu and it is well worth considering as a place to eat.

This is by far the best meal I have had since moving to West Africa! We arrived dirty and hungry from a day out in the Gambian countryside and I could not have felt more welcome than had I been dressed up and my hair brushed. Our three kids were also treated very nicely and were made a special meal of pasta just for them. I had Driss' special fish and it was superb. The wine was delicious and as a special treat, the kids were given a sinful dessert on the house! We all enjoyed our meal here and I will go back the next time we visit the Gambia!
