Ate here for dinner. It was busy. Staff are a little slow. Food is average. Pizza, pasta etc. Nothing too special but for the price ok. They accept cards which is good. Have air conditioning inside.

Reasonable food and drink at a reasonable price for Dakar. Staff are not very friendly and lots of flies. But it is an open air Street side African diner, so you get what you pay for. Pizzas are nothing special, in fact nothing is special. It's just ok and you get what you pay for. There is a bar which... More

Average food with good value. Nothing special. Service is good not professional at all. It is good for one time. They have an internet connection this is why many expats come to drink and email.

Friendly and efficient staff. Average food but good value. Ok for a casual business lunch. Nothing special. Favourite place for ex-pats.

I lived about three blocks from Katia's when doing a contract in Dakar. I enjoyed the Pizza (yes, they have anchovies) and watching the happenings on the street from the patio. Inside was nicely appointed and bar selection was good. Upstairs is a far more upscale restaurant that is only known to some of the more influential locals. Good (but... More

I have been to Katia many times in my visits to Dakar. The pizza is to die for! They cook their pizzas in a fire oven, giving it a nicely flavoured crust, and they put a very generous amount of cheese! Their menu offers a lot of french/italian dishes that are authentic and at an affordable price. Compared to many... More

We found this restaurant when we were looking for to take lunch somewhere and because we were satisfied we decided to celebrate the New Year's Eve there. Lunch we ate down in the restaurant, but at night it was upstairs with nice view over the street. Food was excellent, the whole evening was only perfect. So many different dishes we... More

Katia is often full of customers in the front open air restaurant. Pizza is so so with lots of cheap cheese and cheap toppings, no pepperoni or sausage other than the sweet chorizo the order sometimes gets mixed up even though you point the topping out on the menu. The staff can be rather rude at times. the inside restaurant... More

This is a run down restaurant attracting clients only because of its location. There are much better restaurants in the vicinity. The restaurant is a gathering point for all shady characters after sunset. The quality of the food is nothing to talk about. Food takes ages to be delivered and the staff act as if they are doing you a... More

It's a good place for eating something, the bad thing is the people who smok inside the restaurant also you have to wait long time for your food, but this is normal in Africa
