“Comme Chez-Soi is wonderful”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I have lived in Bamako for 2 1/2 years and have been to Comme Chez-soi for a meal at least 30 times and have never been disappointed. Never. Even on the hottest day, the rooftop restaurant seems to be breezy and comfortable. Every meal, every drink is always delicious. (French and African dishes.) Come for brunch on a Sat or Sun or a musical night (often on Thu) for a real treat. Wine and Mojitos are also great!

“A warm evening with friends in an African atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

The food was good, the environment warm and the African atmosphere perfect.
The service was a bit slow but if you want to escape from the stress of the day and find a peaceful African corner in Bamako this is the perfect place

“Very disappointing food”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

I came with fairly high expectations, based on the previous reviews. The occasion was the Sunday brunch. Unfortunately, the crepe with prawns and artichokes swam in a heavy saffron sauce, which kept reminding itself to me many hours after the meal was over. I wish it hadn't. Then the "green salad" was of a seriously brownish colour - and at 2,000 FCFA, or 4 dollars, in a place like Bamako, this salad was one of the worst value for money I ever had. I was ready to offer them a second chance, and come back for something safer like yoghurt and croissants, but they're closing the restaurant for holidays. Too bad.
