I'm vegetarian and my pasta was average (after all it is a seafood restaurant) but my co-diners really enjoyed their fish. The ambience is really excellent and the staff are very responsive.

Lagon is great for the amazing setting right on the sea! It is of course a focus on sea food but the experience is much beyond the food alone! The service is great and the waiters take effort on explaining the options available with passion! Veg options are limited in cases like mine where I also do not eat seafood... More

I had not been there in 4 years, so I decided to go for lunch and see what the #1 restaurant had to offer. Pro's: Location, Design, Seafood quality, hot bread. Con's: Service is bad, very bad. I was not told there was a daily menu, I figured it out when it was presented to the table next to me... More

This is one of the most delightfully unique restaurants to be found anywhere. It is constructed above the gently rolling waves and the nautical ambiance is superb. The food is excellent and the selection will not disappoint anyone. The restaurant is located a short walk from the Novotel. It was so good we had business dinners there two days running.

I found this amazing restaurant thanks to TripAdvisor. One of the best places I ever been all around the world. The location is astonishing with a stilish old-navy environment even tough I had my dinner on the outdoor terrace straight above the water that you can see through the glass floor. Food, basically seafood is excellent and the price absolutely... More

This is quite a unique restaurant it is on a wooden pier overhanging the sea and is decorated with a lot of character and a mainly maritime and angling theme. The bar inside is made of the stern of a sport fishing boat. The venue itself is quite an experience and it has a large variety of fresh sea food.... More

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
