Been here three times now. I've always been impressed with the service, very professional and friendly. The food is amazing, whether you go on a Sunday for the buffet BBQ or for the usual menu, there's a wide choice of tasty dishes. The owner is always present, she takes time to speak to the customers without being intrusive. Pricewise, it's... More

This is the best restaurant on the strip so for us one of our usual haunts. Visited twice during our stay - once for the buffet and once for our usual chateaubriand. Both really nice. You can eat in or out and the owner and staff are friendly attentive and smart. Well worth a visit. The owner also owns the... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time after reading previous reviews on here. Well worth a visit - meal was very tasty with a varied menu. Staff were great and the chef took time out to ask diners about their meals. Would recommend a visit.

I don't usually go to the buffet night, preferring Saturday. The food was excellent and plenty of it, and the salad bar is in my opinion the best in the Gambia. As usual the service and the staff were impeccable. It's nice to visit a restaurant that with out fail will provide an excellent meal time after time,despite the problems... More

We had a lovely meal but found the restaurant to be full of English people ordering fish and chips, not very sophisticated ambience but the food was good.
