Zorba le Grec is fantastic! The menu is...Well, there isn't one. Just tell Manolis (the owner) what you like or don't like and he brings you a huge spread of delicious Greek food to share family style. He also makes the most amazing feta cheese--from scratch! The ambiance is laid back, sunny, and clean. As far as Bamako restaurants go, this is one of the best. Highly recommended especially if you need a break from pizza and brochettes!

Since my childhood (with my parents and till now) I have been tavelling numeous times to Greece.
As Greek restaurants are ubiquitous in my hometown Vienna, like anywhere else in Europe, it happens quite often that I end up in a Greek Restaurant. One can say, that I love mediterean food and in particular Greek and Lebanese food.
I must say that, in a certain aspect, this is one of the best Greek restaurants I have ever been.
Manolis the owner is an outstanding chef. His food is natural, simple, ethnic and delicious!
I have never tried a la carte, in the approx 12 times I have been dining there, I always followed Manolis recommendation (anothe typical Greek feature).
I am living in Bamako since more than a year now and the Zorbas restaurant is one of the very few restaurants where never ever even the slightest complaint was heard by anyone within the international community . The prices are fair and the athmosphere is very friendly.

efcharisto, thank you Manolis

I've eaten here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. I let Manolis, the super friendly owner, set the menu. Absolutely delicious!
