Espace 331 is a popular maquis in Cocody where you eat typical food. With airy and spacious setting. Friendly atmosphere. Servers full of goodwill. I came for dinner with 2 friends on a Sunday night. No musician that time but football on TV screens. We enjoyed a lot our braised snapper sauce graine with alloco, poulet kedjenou with attieke and... More

Had lunch here with a local friend of mine. I had the grilled chicken with atteke, and my friend had the chicken stew. Looks like a popular place, a mix of locals, French, and Lebanese. Food was on point, and affordable.

During my two day stay in Abidjan I happened two have both my lunches in this local Maquis. I had great meals, very affordable. My choice for lunch was the 1/2 chicken with rice, very tasteful indeed.

The restaurant is very well located in the Cocody neighborhood of Abidjan. The food too is good but for the price I was expecting a better quantity. We ordered Chicken Kedjenou. The waiter told us it would contain a whole African chicken but to our surprise, the pieces in the soup did not correspond to a whole chicken. No neck,... More

This is one restaurant I would like to recommend to all. The meals were very tasty and well prepared. A little patience is required because it took about 35 minutes to get our order but the wait was worth it. It is also simple and conducive to a great business and social mix

This restaurant is a very popular lunch spot with locals in Abidjan. It serves the usual ivoiran dishes like kedgenou but is particularly renown for the grilled fish, poisson braise. A smallish but very fresh menu. It is also very reasonably priced. A place i have been back to many times.

The barbecued fish and plantain is really nice , I always have the Bissap there when I'm waiting for my take away order . Clean restaurant with a large projector screen . I've noticed there is only one English... More

Came here for lunch on the recommendation of a colleague from Abidjan, and not disappointed. Braised chicken with local and very tasty vegetable dishes, washed down with some local beer (Castel) and all this with the English Premiership live on various screens. What's not to like, apart from the result - Liverpool were awful ;-)

We had to go for a quick, casual lunch. This place was in our neighborhood and it was a perfect choice for the occasion. Table cloth was not clean as they did not change or clean it after the last customer ate. The fish I ordered was perfect for me. I would go back for a casual meal. The place... More
