The food is very good: fresh fish and seafood and large portions. Although, as others have mentioned, the prices are a bit high for Dakar. Service is slow, but friendly.

This place serves amazingly fresh seafood! It's an open air style on plage de Ngor and although the service is a little slow, it is worth the wait! and there is a beautiful view of the lagoon and Ngor Island.

Food is ok, the menu changes day by day, depending on the fishermen bring in. It is a bit expensive for Dakar. The place is nice, on the beach. The service is not very good, expect to wait for a long time your food to be served. There is a lot of mosquitos, which make wait the quite unconfortable.

Nice seafood. On the beach in nice setting overlooking anchored boats, people wading in the water and an island not far from coast. Wish they had more outside seating... and less flies... oysters should be colder and mixed grill was average.

The place is nicely located on the beach and with an terrace right on the sand. Hower, the person serving me was rather rude and the inside was smelly and dark (even with bright sunshine outside). They said they could not serve coffee, only beers ... very odd. Too bad because it has the potentiality of being a nice place.

Nice and cosy restaurant located by the beach. Food took a bit too long to arrive. Their desserts can do with some improvements, the crème brûlée was too burnt.

I have been to this place on numerous occasions in 2 visits to Dakar. It is ideally situated on a beach with a lot of activities and it is like a living postcard with boats, people fish being landed etc etc. The Sea food is incredibly good and fresh with an excellent selection of seafood but also catering for other...

My favorite dish is the smoked sword fish ravioli, made fresh daily. None of the other sea food and fish dishes have failed to impress. The views of the beach are amazing. The staff is friendly. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Dakar!

Nice restaurant with an extensive menu. Food was great, but service let it down a little. Waited over an hour for the food.
