Strolled up here one evening for dinner, so glad we did.. If you get chance give it a try you won't regret it. It's not on the strip so nice and quite..

The best restaurant in Bakau. Very good dishes with African food, European food etc. I'd like the Chicken Sizzle the most. You can also order the beef sizzle or the fish sizzle. Really the best food in Bakau.

While in the area this is a great place to stop and enjoy any type of drink. On a hot day the shade is a welcome relief if going between Cape Point and destinations in Bakau. Service is great and friendly. Haven't tried the food, just a perfect place to stop and cool off!

We went here twice during our visit to The Gambia. It was our first time having local Gambian food and it was absolutely delicious!! It was very quiet and peaceful in the evening and see the locals walk past on an evening living life. The music was great. The staff were incredibly friendly and it's incredibly cheap!! We really hope... More

Stopped by for dinner on the basis of the great reviews on here. Unfortunately didn't have the same experience. I think the fact that it was coming to the end of the season meant they had ran out of some supplies (including white wine to my dismay and then the cocktail I asked for!) and we were the only people...

Just eaten here tonight, after a week dining out in Cape Point and this was the best meal so far :) We both had local dishes - chicken yassa and chicken domoda (I think) both with plenty of tender meat and wonderful sauces - good portion size and so flavoursome. It was very popular with people turning up all the... More

Max was great. Lovely, friendly local men who made our stay great. Even threw in some local singing and drumming. Was good to support the local community.

as others have said, this is a great watering hole after a walk back from Bakau. We had lunch here yesterday, it was homemade and fresh. To main meals and a couple of beers each came to D470, which is fantastic value. The setting is not bad, we had goats roaming past us and the staff are very friendly

A very friendly relaxed place. Nice cold beer. A good stopping point on way to Bakau and for refreshments on the walk back.
