Very nice ambiance, good service, good food. Was our first time to eat there despite having been in and out of Ivory Coast since August 2015. Definitely worth a visit. PS: the fact that I didn't give 5 stars is that I dont want them to turn complacent; always room for innovation and improvement, right ;) ?

One of the well known restaurants of Abidjan, close to my favorite place Paul. Le Grand is the place to meet and discuss, service is good and food is delicious. If you are inviting check the prices well 😎

Being recognized as a reference in Abidjan culinary panorama, the Le Gran Large has placed itself always as a high class restaurant directing a wealth public and business lunches/dinners. All the food there is excellent, the attention to it is clear. Fish dishes are superb. One little bad note is price.

This must be the best French restaurant in Abidjan! Well prepared meals, excellent ingredients, superb selection of wines and above average service. A must if you are in Ivory Coast/Abidjan

Defined as the best restaurant in town, I had a lot of expectations. Pleasant atmosphere but not perfect, the room is overcooled by AC. Polite staff and good service but the owner should give more attention to details. We the price level of the restaurant, you expect to have a waiter with clean and no tear in the outfit. Food...

If you visit abidjan you must pass by and try Le Grand Large. One of the best fine resto in the town, tasty food, great service, cozy and calm, crowded a bit during Fridays. Give it a try
