We had a really superb meal in Le Petit Dakar. The food was excellent, the service friendly and unobtrusive, the restaurant itself was pleasant and well located. This was one of the best meals I have had in Paris. Highly recommended.

Located in the district of Marais, close to the Place des Vosges (yes, the square surrounded with the very similar buildings and swarming with tourists and locals too), we were surprised by the reasonable prices, unusual for this part of town. The interior of the restaurant is simple, but cozy. The staff is friendly and willing to answer all your questions.
The menu is very simple too. As tieboudienne is served only on Fridays and Saturdays, it leaves you with the choice of three meals only during the rest of the week. We both had mafe. It was not bad, but nothing exceptional. It was satisfactory to me because I had not had an African meal for a few years, but my Senegalese friend was sincerely disappointed. On the other hand, do not miss their bissap juice and ginger juice! They are both delicious!

A simple, clean decor with an interesting selection available. Normally sized portions, and most importantly, flavorful and memorable food. I had never tried Senegalese food before so I cannot speak to authenticity, but I loved it.
