It was pleasant to go there because the woman owner is very friendly. The food used to be so much better... but apparently they have problems getting quality ingredients and sometimes resort to ersatz ingredients... what a shame. Pot luck is not what I expect when I go to the restaurant. That's what I expect when I return home and... More

La Gondole is not a bad choice for a nosh near rhe popular Plage du Virage on the Route de l'Aeroport. It is located right at the major turn in the road where you can see the lovely beaches and surf before making the final approach to the Aeroport. La Gondole has a rather standard lunch counter/Ice Cream Parlour atmosphere.... More

No taste at all. Everything is bland and fatty. no originality, better to go in a typical senegalese restaurant for the same price to eat fish or poultry.
