Located on the corniche just down the Novotel hotel, the Lagon 1 is a superb restaurant on stilts with an air-conditioned inner room and boat ambience very worked. The exterior is equally magnificent with a breathtaking view of the island of gorée, the beach and the corniche Est .. Entrance tropezienne, valet parking, guarded parking .. European and senegalese gastronomy... More

Just around the corner from the Novotel this gem of a restaurant promises much and delivers. Set on a pier with the sound of lapping waves muting the conversation the service is slick and friendly. A comprehensive menu makes it difficult to choose your meal and I settled for the marinated fish as a starter which was fresh and suitably... More

This restaurant, popular for years with international celebrities, is highly atmospheric. Like being on the deck of a ship overlooking the crashing surf, it's quite romantic and the waves are mesmerizing. Cuisine is good, especially if you like seafood.

An iconic must visit restaurant in Dakar, if you are into fresh high quality sea food then this is your place to be. The location, decoration, setup, staff, food, portion, pricing all are in perfection.

Very quirky place, obviously patronised by the rich and famous if the names on the brass plaques displayed on the access bridge are to be believed, we had a very good meal of grilled fish and the chocolate fondant dessert wasn't too shabby either! Offered by our client so no idea on value for money, but I would expect it... More

First Time there as my colleague informed me it was one of the most famous place in Dakar for fish. Nice place where environment is dedicated to fishermen and sea. No giant prawns this day but a delicious grilled grouper. Service could be more smiling. Try it.

This resturant has a great location as you can eat while enjoying the beautiful scene of the Atlantic ocean. They a wide selection of fish and seafood and it is delicious. It is just expensive so it is not a place where you can have you dinner every night.

Nicely located on the beach, the marine themed deco is rather pleasing. The service is a well oiled machine: efficient and friendly. A dozen fine de claire and a dozen fresh clams for starter, a delicious fresh local grilled fish and a pear terrine nicely married to an unusual( and refreshing) ginger ice cream. I will come back!

Great food. Attentive wait staff. Fish, beef or chicken, you can't go wrong with any of its selections. A must for atmosphere dining partially situation over in the ocean.

Great view, great ambiance, great service, but... Food is only so, so. It's not bad, but for the price, it's not great. Go for a drink. And if you go for a meal, just realize you're paying for the view!
