Great pizzas and a nice clean restaurant. It's a big place so if you go early the ambience isn't quite right. Best pizza I have eaten in Dakar and their investment in stone baked ovens pays off. Nice meal, I would go back.

We went there for dinner on a Saturday night. Though it doesn't look like much from the road (maybe needs a bigger sign?) it was a great tiki-like atmosphere inside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were a couple of couples so we had a chance to try pizzas and steaks. We also had some salads (happy to... More

I haven't had the opportunity to visit the fine Sao Brazil Pizzeria in Ngor - since I last reviewed it in May/June 2013 - until I dropped in for a pizza 3 days ago with my daughter. She lives in the UK now but wanted to make to return pilgrimage to Sao Brazil to check out whether the pizza flambé... More

I haven t tried anything but the pizzas and they are really good. Ingredients are freshed and the pizza is made on wood fire. Service is great and fast and i never had to complain. Open air restaurant, great for a date setting.

Convenient pizza place in the ngor area. While I have another favorite pizza place, this place is sometimes more convenient for those living in the Ngor and virage area. They have excellent mojitos. They say they have carpirinha but most of the time it tastes like rum instead of Cachaça and more like a rum sour than a carpirinha. All... More

I prefer to eat pizza in that restaurant, service is good, atmosphere is friendly. Open air restaurant with nice tables and they provide anti-mosquitos for every table. For me it is best pizza in town although I tried other dish but I prefer their pizza.

Eat here a couple of times during my stay in Dakar. One night watched the football on the big screen whilst eating pizza and drinking a nice cold bottle of flag beer.
