I enjoyed a declicious fish dinner in this lovely restaurant. The restaurant is decorated as a deck on a exclusive cruise boat. The staff was very friendly and efficient. It was a great success.

Marvelous place for seafood, exquisite location, fantastic decorations. The whole experience is awesome including the staff uniform which is a captain's uniform.

Location 8/10, food 6/10 service 5/10.

I've been here twice over the past two months and was left feeling a bit frustrated on both occasions (gave it the benefit of the doubt after the first visit). The setting is lovely but it's not enough alone to make an excellent restaurant. Food is just only just above average for the price in Dakar.

What disappointed most was the feeling that the staff didn't want our business. Took ages to get served (and then without a smile) and had to ask several times for our drinks. The drinks arrived after the starters.

There are far better places to spend your hard earned cash if you want more than just a view.

We visited this restaurant with great hopes after experiencing what is supposed to be the number 2. But we were sadly mistaken - stunning location, great fun set up- and that's about it. Service very slow and servers highly uninterested - had to ask at least twice for everything and then also chase again - from beers to chilli sauce.

Food when came really quickly - far too quickly to be cooked to order in about 7 minutes. The prawns great size but swimming in oil and boand the roquefort steak over cooked and sauce needed a lot more roquefort! - the daily special looked better but the staff described as fish & vegetables. Not once did anyone come to check for satisfaction.

Once you added the total costs - for three main courses and 6 beers it was almost double the cost of Farid - where we enjoyed starters, main course abs dessert as well as wine and beer !.

I would go back for the view buy an overpriced and not cold draft beer and then head to the number 2 restaurant for service and great food.

Relaxed business lunch, sun shining, waves lapping at the pier legs, the setting and decor are divine and appropriate. Not too busy, the service was pleasantly attentive and the food exceeded my expectations.
Room for improvement, always. But I will remember this, fondly, for a long time.
