I entered this restaurant at 6:15 PM. I made my order by 6:20 PM. I drank a beer and waited for my food, patiently, because I knew I had sufficient time to eat dinner and still get to the airport for my 11 PM flight to Paris. Oh yes, I ordered a very difficult meal to cook - a cheeseburger... More

We went there on a Saturday evening The place is American oriented with kind and jovial waiters dressed as "sheriffs". I was impressed with the long bar displaying a huge display and choice of alcohols ( can't say anything more as o don't drink ). The place was kind of empty when we arrived at 8PM but gradually filled up... More

I was quite surprised to find this restaurant in Mali, and went their twice during the trip. The food was tasty, something I would expect to find on the South Texas border rather than West Africa. The outstanding waiters, dressed in American Cowboy style, were eager to ensure service was outstanding, and always with a smile. If you're in Bamako,... More

It was definitely worth the try, their menu is very diversified, best buffet I've tried so far. The salad section has... More
