“Don't miss Bab's Dock....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

This place is owned by two amazing Belgians that built this paradise in the middle of nowhere...
A short magical boat-ride and you are there...
A great place to relax and kick back... Have a drink, sunbath, swim, eat something and just enjoy your time....

“Small paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

At about half an hour drive from Cotonou and a 10 minute boatride, this you arrive at an open air restaurant on th shore of the lagoon. Under big trees with lots of shadow you may enjoy a few hours of rest in a splendid environment. The food is really ok, but not more than that. Plenty waiters and waitress, you don't wait long to be served. There training is however pretty basic. By the way only open on weekends and some holidays.

“Our favorite day trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

It is really our favorite place for a day trip. Wonderful short boat trip trough the mangrove. Then Just sitting on the dock, having a glass and relaxing, while the kids are either on the playground or in the water. The food is great as well. Then just a bit of exercise on the canoes or kayak there. Ideal way to spend quality time with the kids.

“Best place outside Cotonou”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Bab's Dock is located outside Cotonou. Take the Route de Peche around 20 mins and don't miss the sign to go right just before Helvetica. Park your car and take the small boat that will ferry you through the mangrove and across the lake to Bab's Dock. Excellent start! This is a place to chill, listen music and have a drink. Food is not so much recommended. Quality is not that good and it is overprized. Still highly recommended!
