Le Ngor

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. We stopped in for lunch on the recommendation of our hotel and were charmed by the decor and the location of the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and put us at a table overlooking the ocean and a small private beach (very very clean !!). The food, fresh seafood tagliatelle for me and the grilled steak for my husband, was delicious. We enjoyed the restaurant so much, food and ambiance,that we decided to return the next night for dinner. This was even better if possible. Ocean view, moonlight and waves crashing on the beach, with a wonderful "chicken Yasa" and grilled fish was more than we could have asked for. Then it got better as the manager "Alpha" suggested we have our final drinks on the beach. No better way to end our vacation than sitting on a moonlit beach sipping drinks. When we return to Dakar the restaurant Ngor will definitely be a stop and we would recommend to anyone who likes great food and ambiance !!! Bon Voyage

Great view, right on the waters edge.
Thiof grilled fish excellent.
Wi fi non existent!
Service could be more attentive!
Well priced menu!
Here is what spoiled my experience was when I paid with a credit card the waitress added +300 onto my bill because I was using my card surely this is not legal.
My French is not good so I let it be but will rather visit other places in future that have honored my Credit card without adding +300

La Calebasse

Reviewed By Vishna - London, England, United Kingdom

Very much feels like a tourist dining experience when you combine the very authentic decor, the handicraft store outside with the live music experience. It's located just off the main road, although you do feel very removed from the outside buzz. There is an outside and indoor Seating area- plenty of space and limited parking outside! The menu itself serves local dishes and the quality is good- prices are medium range but as a vegetarian the options remain limited- always ask about alternative options. Waiter are friendly and attentive - try the Thursday night for gospel choir!

La Cabane du Pecheur

Consider your restaurant as your second home. Simplicity and convenience, these are our priorities. Come with friends, family, and enjoy the beautiful landscape by the sea, overlooking the island of Ngor. Enjoy the freshness of our fish caught directly by local fish wholesalers or directly by customers of our fishing center Atlantic Evasion. If you love fish, you'll love La Cabane du Pecheur!

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.

La pointe des Almadies

Restaurant La Pointe des Almadies is an outdoor restaurant that overlooks the sea. Specalized in PAELLA and seafood

Reviewed By William S - Tempe, Arizona

We ate at the seafood stalls the night before and decided to go a little upscale for Xmas eve. Actually was a mistake we had better food ambience, music in the food stalls. They didn't have lobsters. We had starters of mixed seafood and shrimp cocktail, was okay but nothing special. Mains were seafood fricasse and grilled shrimp. All was rather tasteless and bland. Service was great, people working there a pleasure, very nice indoor/outdoor decor. But I want the food to be the main attraction and it wasn't.

Noflaye Beach

Reviewed By HappyTrails2069

Noflaye was packed the other night and I'm so glad I waited to come back a little later instead of skipping it altogether. The place is right on the ocean, and the waves crashing are a welcomed soundtrack after the hustle and bustle of urban Dakar. The crepes were delicious and paired with a nice glass of rose, I really couldn't have asked for more. Service was pleasant. Would come back in a heartbeat.

L'eden A

Reviewed By Scicc - Washington DC, District of Columbia

A illogical and heated argument ruined my otherwise positive experience here at L'Eden.
The food was decent, but the yelling matches around me which included the wait staff and management were not. The bar was running a promo, buy 2 drinks get 1 free but a mistake was made with the bill. Then another male server came out and seemingly out of pure stubbornness and pride, held their ground and were even insulting. One employee, upset, later said the the servers were in the wrong. It was a strange an unpleasant experience. For this alone I would avoid the place. It was extremely rude.

Simone Cafe

Reviewed By Anna G

I have tried nearly everything on the menu, plus I have ordered two cakes on separate occasions. Simone makes the best desserts in Dakar. This is a very quiet place, which is very hard to find in Dakar. Great place to have a light lunch and a delicious dessert! Their iced tea is pretty hard to beat!

ANNAPURNA INDIAN RESTAURANT dAKAR

Reviewed By caleb192837 - United States

My wife and I went to Annapurna Restaurant for lunch today. Service was good and waiter spoke English, which was an unexpected bonus. Decor was dated but restrooms were clean. Food was good but not great. We have had better Indian food on other continents but, by West African standards, one is unlikely to do much better. Total cost for 2 meals, Coca, rice, and garlic naan was around 13,500 CFA or roughly $23. We will definitely go back.
