Honestly, I can say much about the food at Katia since the first time i had a pizza bianca, as you can find in italy, and I liked it so much I have never had anything else. Five stars. Same the desserts, always delicious. To bad I ordered a pina colada last time, almost as expensive as the big pizza,... More

If you want atmosphere then this restaurant is for you. there Pizza is very popular with always a herd of locals waiting for takeaway pizza. I tried the pizza it has a lot of cheese and the best I have had in Dakar. The steaks are good too, large portions. You need to study the menu for some time as... More

I wonder why several reviews rate this average because i truly think Katia deserves a higher rating. It takes a bit more than the ordinary for a pizza to impress me but Katia's seafood pizza was the absolute BOMB! Generous pieces of smoked salmon, shrimp, prawn & calamari drenched in a rich tomato sauce and cheese. My dining partner had... More

Ate here for dinner. It was busy. Staff are a little slow. Food is average. Pizza, pasta etc. Nothing too special but for the price ok. They accept cards which is good. Have air conditioning inside.

Reasonable food and drink at a reasonable price for Dakar. Staff are not very friendly and lots of flies. But it is an open air Street side African diner, so you get what you pay for. Pizzas are nothing special, in fact nothing is special. It's just ok and you get what you pay for. There is a bar which... More

Average food with good value. Nothing special. Service is good not professional at all. It is good for one time. They have an internet connection this is why many expats come to drink and email.

Friendly and efficient staff. Average food but good value. Ok for a casual business lunch. Nothing special. Favourite place for ex-pats.

I lived about three blocks from Katia's when doing a contract in Dakar. I enjoyed the Pizza (yes, they have anchovies) and watching the happenings on the street from the patio. Inside was nicely appointed and bar selection was good. Upstairs is a far more upscale restaurant that is only known to some of the more influential locals. Good (but... More

I have been to Katia many times in my visits to Dakar. The pizza is to die for! They cook their pizzas in a fire oven, giving it a nicely flavoured crust, and they put a very generous amount of cheese! Their menu offers a lot of french/italian dishes that are authentic and at an affordable price. Compared to many... More

We found this restaurant when we were looking for to take lunch somewhere and because we were satisfied we decided to celebrate the New Year's Eve there. Lunch we ate down in the restaurant, but at night it was upstairs with nice view over the street. Food was excellent, the whole evening was only perfect. So many different dishes we... More
