It does not look at much from the outside, but inside is a beautiful terrace. Prices are very reasonable and food is great. Menu in English. Only downside was the starters. The menu promised 8-savory pieces. We got 4 different kinds of deep fried battered meat and cheese. The meat parts were very dry, and quite a disappointing start. The... More

Very good Lebanese food in a lovely outdoor setting with canvas covers overhead. The humus was delicious. I had roasted chicken which was also wonderful.

This restaurant is simply delicious. In the middle of downtown Dakar, once you find it you feel away from the city and are able to relax. You can sit inside or outside. I personally love going at night; the lights really give it a great ambiance. The food is delicious. I recommend ordering the "Mezze". It will allow you to... More

The restaurant is decorated very nicely and even had live music at evening when we were there ( Sunday). It looks like terrace in the garden. Staff is very polite and regarding the food we tried what was offered as Lebanese. Humus was delicious, main courses with chicken was also great. Web particulary liked the combinations of flavours and spices... More

The best Lebanese food in Dakar! It is not a very upscale setting but the food stands out! The best falafel I have had anywhere in West Africa, and I travel a lot in these parts.. The atmosphere is generally friendly and easygoing and one can look forward to a nice evening at Farid..
