The "Gondwana Restaurant" has a very contemporary artsy feel with a definite African flair! The food is refined and creative. They even have duck on the menu, so there is an admixture of fine French cuisine as well! They also have nice cocktails and aperitifs....More

A mix of local cuisine and European, etc. Just a mix. Fresh food. May be considered pricey but nothing too outrageous. It has lovely outdoor seating and serves as an art gallery too. Everything is for sale. Mostly West African art. Worth the stop.

ate there twice this week for dinner. Had brochettes de boeuf which were delicious and the whole atmosphere is very peaceful, with African art all around. The garden area is also gorgeous. Woudl come back.

It is not as vegetarian-friendly as suggested on trip advisor, as there was only one vegetarian plate available (vegetables in coconut milk and curry sauce with rice). It was pretty tasty. We liked the décor very much.

I absolutely loved my evening hers. A Burkinabe friend took us here and we loved the setting with the art gallery and the relaxing seating. The food was delicious. I had fish with a saffron and citrus sauce that was so unusual and amazing. If...More

This restaurant is amazing in so many ways... the building is an unusual construction reminiscent of adobe homes in southwest USA. Tables are spread around the garden and the night we went there were two men playing smoothest music mix of jazz and African but...More

Dinner here is definitely worth the experience. You're basically having dinner in an art gallery. Everything is for sale - without it being pushed upon you. Food & service were excellent. Would return!
