Le Pilier is a nice Italian restaurant in Niamey. Food is good quality: pasta, pizza, fish, appetizers, salads, one cannot go wrong. A little pricey compared to others, but not really too expensive.

Quite possibly Niamey's fanciest restaurant. Delicious food, great atmosphere. The basement has recently been re-opened, which is incredibly cool during the hot season. The Lunch Menu also provides a wide selection with good value for the price.
