Not that great food and the restaurant couldn't serve a cocktail, only beer. Good location though, just on the beach.

As a regular visitor to Banjul, in season this is the perfect spot to have a good lunch and cold drink. The views are stunning over a white sand beach. The waiters are attentive and fast and I wish they opened off season too!

This place was in a beautiful spot right on the beach and had great food--in fact the best benchin that we had in the country. The food wasn't quite spicy enough and the waiter went back and whipped up his own concoction that was so delicious. We hope this place stays in business considering the shutdown of the Atlantic Hotel.

A beachside restaurant near the Laico Atlantic Hotel. Super food at reasonable prices and good draught beer. We were well looked after by the staff, particularly Lamil. The place was very quiet during our visit owing to the low visitor numbers but if you do make it to the Gambia this is a great spot for a meal or just... More
