“Relaxing lunch on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

As cold as it was in Nouakchott when I stayed there, it was remarkably warm on the beach. The proprietor set up tents to hold the warmth while not obsuring the view of the water. Food was simple but plentiful. Their salads were crisp and the meat was well grilled. My friends ordered a lobster that was so large they had to split it, and still they were leaving meat on their plates! I ordered a chicken brioche, which is like Thai satay. Mine was flavored with curry and onion. It was light and filling. The thrill for us was the donkey! Someone had a pet donkey who let us pet her. She was so sweet and friendly and came to our table for more petting! Her owner finally dragged her away, sadly. I certainly want to go there again.
