While I try to eat local and I am sure there's a ton of imports in this food - as a vegetarian this place is my one and only paradise here in Dakar! Every single dish I have tried is tasty and done to perfection....More

Most people go here for the Lebanese food. Fair enough, but their Italian plate was excellent, as were their club sandwiches. Parking is sometimes an issue.

The food was delicious, a variety of Lebanese food in the center of Dakar. The staff are nice. We went there for lunch on a weekend and it was great by far the best restaurant I tried in town.

Probably the best Lebanese Restaurant in Dakar. A great variety of food, both fish and meat. Great and friendly service. Nice garden atmosphere in the evening when not too hot. Prices are reasonable on the high end, but worth the try.

I tend to go with my partner st least a couple of times a month. Really nice atmosphere and decent wine. On weekends they also have live music. Good price for the quality!

Clean and friendly place serving tasty Lebanese food in huge portions. We shared a mezze with 4 people and had to ask for a doggy back - a big one ;-) The best food we had Senegal.

Great food and cool if business atmosphere. Spicy hummus and chicken kebabs were a favorite. Outdoor area has a fancy waterfall
