I was in Bamako for a business trip and was recommended to Appaloosa by a colleague. Overall, I had a good dining experience. The food was good, the staff was friendly, and US/Western theme was amusing. If not for the food, Appaloosa is definitely worth checking out for the atmosphere itself.

This is a must see and experience in Bamako. Weird combination of Italian, American and Ukrainian menu, and interior - you just have to see! Not necessarily a place to take your wife to, but with a good growd everyone will have fun.

Nice bar. It looks like a farwest saloon. The meal is quite good. Tender steaks and a very tasty great size pizzas. It is not expensive. The waitresses are beautiful but they will try to convince you to pay them drinks. Do not do that, they will cheat you.
