Other reviewers have described many of the great selections on the brunch menu -- the eggs benedict with smoked salmon was wonderful served up with a well-mixed mimosa. The open-air setting nestled in greenery is a quiet respite in a busy, dusty city. The service is excellent -- arrive by 11 for weekend brunch to avoid the crowds.

The bloody Marys were perfect. My eggs benedict were done perfectly. My colleagues also enjoyed their breakfast meals. the service was prompt,... More

Comme Chez Soi is my favorite restaurant in Bamako! The weekend brunch is a premier time to visit. The atmosphere is natural, cool and minimalistic. The service is excellent. The French toast is creative and super sweet. The shrimp burger was my favorite thing on the menu until the fish tacos showed up on the menu- they are excellent and... More

The food was really good. The setting is an outdoor terrace away of the hustle and bustle of the city.

This is a B&B, but I only ate there. French cuisine with a Indian or Asian dish thrown in on the menu to surprise your cravings. I didn't have wine, but the selection was nice. Food was unique and tasty compared to other restos nearby. Good job for keeping this place a notch above the rest. Staff is pro. Ambiance... More

The food is fine, and the atmosphere is definitely congenial to long conversations that have nothing to do with work. There are generally not many people here, so you can talk without a lot of noise competition. The staff are attentive if you get (and keep) their attention, but this is not the place to eat if you are in... More

I've eaten here twice, and I love the atmosphere, up on the roof. The food is delicious too. I enjoyed pork chops, but my friends had filet mignon shish kabobs that I wanted to steal! We bought 3 desserts to share and each one was better than the other!
