The pros : pleasant patio for al fresco dining (at least when temperatures aren’t too high). Good service by Leontine. Very tempting dessert selection. The cons : Main dish (Skewers of beef fillet) was average. Wine list is quite limited.

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.

Nice service, but food was dry and lacked flavour. The freshly prepared mint tea was the highlight of the meal.
