    An afro style restaurant with very good. I recommend the couscous beef and beef "brochettes". The service is good, don't get annoyed for waiting, everything is fresh made on place, no prefabricated stuff. The owner is a nice person, helping English speakers.

    I don't think they have conference room. Also no pool. Is just a very nice small hotel with a good African restaurant. They allow also to camp.
