Great atmosphere!!! They have done a great job using local materials to create an authentic Burkinabae vibe in a comfortably air conditioned restaurant. Good food. Their hamburger is enormous - four layers of beef! The couscous Gondwana is excellent - similar to a Moroccan tajine....More

A special place in the dusty Ouaga. Nicely decorated with local handicrafts and objects. The service is attentive and friendly. The tapas were good as a starter with their special drink. The meat was tasty but a little bit chewy. Nice music made the evening...More

Dinner here is definitely worth the experience. You're basically having dinner in an art gallery. Everything is for sale - without it being pushed upon you. Food & service were excellent. Would return!

Certainly for me one of the best restaurants in Ouagadougou and for sure the most beautiful. Good food in a special place, full of fantastic African handcraft (and you can buy it). You absolutely have to taste it, you won't regret this marvelous exotic gastronomy

Le Gondwana has consistently good food, an extensive menu, and great ambiance. The restaurant space is adorned with beautiful for-sale art that you can shop while you dine, although it's more expensive for what you can find in the market. Great for big groups, too.

Beautifully done restaurant with a friendly atmosphere and great food. Tables are not too close so you can have a private conversation. Also has an escape ladder which is a sensible addition in these times.
