I have been to this place on numerous occasions in 2 visits to Dakar. It is ideally situated on a beach with a lot of activities and it is like a living postcard with boats, people fish being landed etc etc. The Sea food is incredibly good and fresh with an excellent selection of seafood but also catering for other...

My favorite dish is the smoked sword fish ravioli, made fresh daily. None of the other sea food and fish dishes have failed to impress. The views of the beach are amazing. The staff is friendly. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Dakar!

Nice restaurant with an extensive menu. Food was great, but service let it down a little. Waited over an hour for the food.

Great seafood, great view on the beach, really sociable and friendly restaurant. We watched our dinner come out of the boat and across the beach into the kitchen!

Some of the best and freshest seafood in the Almadies/Ngor area, prepared in a variety of mostly European styles. They also have the best sorbet/gelato on the beach and a great view of the Ngor island and bay. Their vegetarian options are poor to non-existent, which seems strange in this decade.

My colleague and I were referred to this gem by a local expat. The outside is a bit unassuming when first arriving, but one you are inside it's quaint and refreshing. I don't speak French and was pleasantly surprised to find the waiter could speak English. As for the food, I started off with sauteed shrimp and calamari and they... More

This resto is situated in the posh Almadies neighbourhood. There is both inside and outside seating. Occasionally a live band plays on Friday nights. The service in this establishment is however quite spotty. Sometimes one needs to call the waiters several times before service is rendered. The food can also be at times a hit or miss affair. I recommend... More

We love this little place for the freshest seafood on town. One of our favorites in Dakar. Go for the espadon when they have it and the oysters are good too.

A great place for seafood in Dakar. Used to be much less expensive but recently prices have risen a lot.
