We went there several times, and it is one of the "fancier" restaurants in the Ndar section of Saint-Louis. For lunch, the croque monsieur was too heavy for me to finish, but the burger looked good. Generous portions, nice salads. For dinner, the pizza was excellent, but again, the calzone was too heavy for our tastes. Although we were appreciative... More

We had lunch at La Kora en route to Djoudj from Dakar - what a surprise when you walk in. This restaurant is very quaint, is well decorated and completely draws you in. The staff were very friendly and our meals fantastic.

The place has nice decor, the menu is kind of limited on the food but it tastes good. They seem to have more extensive drink menu. We ordered chicken and beef burgers, veal with farfalle and they taste like gourmet. The french fries are crispy and the presentation is very nice. The beef for the burger is on the raw... More

La Kora mixes bar with fine dining. While outside it offers a relaxed environment at the bar or some tables inside it seem to aim more fore a refined dining experience with with table cloth and wine glasses. The restaurant's menu lists on the one hand a variety of sandwiches and international classics like a burger and on the other... More

Yummy food. It was a perfect spot on a hot Senegalese day to break from the beating sun and fill up with a modest, nice meal. I would go back. The food was good and the setting was perfect. The service is as you need it and it was like a small bubble. I cannot say how it compares to... More

A nice outdoor area with bar and high tables, as well as an indoor restaurant. Nice, simple food of European style. Limited menu, but good choices (that probably change daily). Recommended for a quiet family dinner (like many restaurants in Senegal, only opens after 6 PM for dinner).

Lovely little bar and restaurant, such a shame it's so quiet at the moment - a place as good as this deserves more atmosphere! Not the fault of the food, staff or drinks though - all very good :)

I dined with my coworkers at La Kora on a Sunday evening. On Sunday the menu is limited, but pizza is available. The people working were attentive and very friendly. The pizza itself was fantastic, and it reminded me of pizza in Italy.. very thin and light dough bubbled and browned by the oven. The chorizo topping was excellent (think... More

This place is pricey but if you want to spoil yourself it is definitely worth it. The food is delicious and elegantly presented French fare using lovely fresh ingredients, the service is excellent and the whole place makes you feel happy and looked after. It is in a nicely restored St Louis colonial building with an ochre and yellow contemporary... More
