I am a regular customer at Savana. I discovered it 3 years ago, upon a friend's invitation and loved it. Menu is varied, good bar, ambience is chilled out, good background music and the open air space is cosy. Service is dedicated and owners are friendly and present to welcome guests. Security is at high standard level and increased with... More

Is a place where you can eat good food, nice and clean place. The owners are good people, customer oriented. Live music sometimes. Service is average.

Last year I eat there very tadtefull but now.......sorry.We went for diner on Sunday evening. the food was terrible, cold and untastefull. The waiters were really unexperienced and they didn't even understand French. I'm staying in BKO for a couple of months but.....i don't think i'll eat there again and i will not recommend it.

In this place you will find very good food in a nice enviroment. Security is taken seriously and the owner is always there, on top of every detail. A must to go if you visit Bamako.

Visited this restaurant for an early dinner with friends. Nice ambience and décor. The service was good but, as always in Africa, we had to wait quite a while for the food. Unfortunately my meat was cold, however my friends were pleased with their food. The restaurant serves wine.

Everyone talks about the pizza, but I want to talk about the popcorn. Lots of places in Bamako serve peanuts with drinks - Le Savana does, too - but they kick it up a notch by serving great popcorn, too. It's a bit oily, but not too salty, and a welcome change of pace. The pizza is good, and the... More

I sincerely had the worst service experience in Bamako at Savana. Went there 3 times and will not got once more. Waiters were acting like we were literally bothering them, total disregard for our requests. We (table of only black pple) were basically treated like second class citizens, white pple coming after us were immediately served! It's a no no... More
