Assoyam Beach

Reviewed By Ole H - Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire

I come from Abidjan for Saturday or Sunday lunch sometime, and Assoyam is often where I go
The setting is beautiful and the decor is better than most places - could need a cushion on the chairs though
The food is really good and the service friendly

La Paillote

Reviewed By Jane L - England

We did not stay but had breakfast twice and liked the look of the place. Though not busy [out of season] it looked well tended. Food is slightly cheaper that some of the hotels nearby, there are many all along the beach.
Appolinaire was a great, kind waiter and helped us with transport to the airport.
My choice for the next trip to CI.
Anyone thinking of going to CI should note that here, and everywhere, there are many lizards and crabs and crawling things [in town and beach]. This would not suit those who are skittish.

Bassam Pizza

There are many varieties of pizza - and I'm glad that mine was mixed up with someone else in our group because I got to taste both! La Mexican pizza taste like a great hamburger pizza!!!
Sometimes you want food that resembles "home" --- and this was it for me!

La Taverne Bassamoise

Reviewed By lynzzz15 - Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire

This restaurant has a unique decor, flowers, shells and lots of African statues, especially life size colonel guys, watching you while you eat. The food is standard French, with a touch of Ivoirian (alloco) tasty, a little pricey, but you can eat on the Terrace, in a paillotte or outside under the palms trees, nice soft music, and if you go close enough, an ocean view, a little tourist boutique and pool on the property

Reviewed By Fedz2073 - London, United Kingdom

A wonderful dinner, most delicious food, fresh fish and vegetables, cooked in a traditional and yet imaginative way. Nice to dine outside under the big roof, sheltered from the rain. The owner is a most charming and elegant lady. Worth the trip from Abidjan. Merci a Abdou for taking me along.

La Case Bleue

Restaurant-gallery in Grand Bassam (first capital of the Ivory coast) 30 km from Abidjan la case bleue located in the heart of the colonial district "quartier france" Environment pleasant in harmony with its environment. Impeccable service, at the height of the quality of the proposed dishes. open tuesday to sunday from 10 am to 11 pm

Reviewed By Lorie M

Come to Bassam for more than the beach! This artsy restaurant by the lagoon is incredible! Some dishes take awhile to prepare, but they have been worth the wait. While you wait, check out the local artwork or photography as it changes periodically. The food is beautifully plated and every dish is alive with flavors from West Africa. The staff are attentive and very informative about each dish. And if you are an American from the South, you have to try the mashed potatoes-melt in your mouth! Don't forget to tell Luc, the owner, Bonjour!
