Open area, Music and cold drink with local food. Atieke and alloco with options of grilled fish or chicken. Watch out for the chilli sauce though... Place gets very crowded. you might want to avoid it if you don't like crowds

Cocody's Allocodrome is recommended by guidebooks for a good reason. Here you can experience how local people eat and have fun with bottle of local beer. It's not the cheapest place, but far better than any hotel restaurant. And the atmosphere is more genuine here. We had very good tilapia with bit oily aloco and chicken with perfect attiéké. We...

Each time I go to Abidjan, I must go and spend at least one evening at the Allocodrome! Very simple place but I love its atmosphere in the evening when temperature gets a bit down and the smell of the BBQ grilling fish and chicken until late evening! Jolina, Rachem, and many other ladies will "fight" to get your order... More

It's a good experience if you are trying to explore local ambiance, but nothing special that you cannot get at any other food stand or maquis around Abidjan.

I was looking for an authentic popular place where I can enjoy local food. A Friend who knows Abidjan well suggested this place. I was actually very happy to be there. I love grilled fish and fried alloco and was well served. The taste was special and the price was nothing compared to the quantity and quality of the meal.... More

My taxi driver took me here and I was so grateful. For 15 Euro we had an excellent grilled fish meal for three with onions and hot peppers, cous cous, fried bananas and soft drinks. There is a DJ playing Couper-Ecarte music. Service is a bit haphazard but the food is very fresh. I was the only foreigner there. A... More
