Not the best choice in downtown Monrovia. Lived there for a year, never impressed with Evelyn's. Expect a long wait and below average food.

Good food. You just have to wait too long to get it.

Very near from the ministries of Commerce and of Justice, in the heart of Monrovia, you can find this jewel of a restaurant. Since you enter you are greeted welcome and offered a table. It offers at least three different Liberian dishes in its daily menu. The taste is fantastic, the speed after your order is better than in Europe and the service cannot be better: there is almost one gentle waitress per table.
Another thing to admire is the gracious way in which they deal with the all-too-common electricity shortages in Monrovia. When light goes off, the waitresses immediately bring battery-operated lamps to every table, all while keeping a smile and very good disposition.
I will certainly make and effort to come back to Evelyn's!

It's a very pleasant mid-range place. At lunchtimes - and maybe at all times - they have a buffet ($20) with quite a range of dishes, and every day there’s a choice of two Liberian dishes on the main menu. I had the fish soup with a mix of plaintain, cassava, and another pinkish root vegetable that I've forgotten the name of ($8). Very tasty. My colleague went for the buffet - and went back three times. Obviously a good choice if you're hungry. The Liberian food is generally rich in oil, but I guess it wouldn't be Liberian if it weren't. Picture attached?

The restaurant has a mix Liberian and western customers.

Toilets are well-maintained (but cubicles without locks when I went).

I'll definitely be going back, especially as it's within walking distance of work. It's on the south side of Broad Street, between Center Street and Buchanan Street.
