The best Lebanese food in Dakar! It is not a very upscale setting but the food stands out! The best falafel I have had anywhere in West Africa, and I travel a lot in these parts.. The atmosphere is generally friendly and easygoing and one can look forward to a nice evening at Farid..

It was a total surprise to have such a wonderful restaurant in middle of dakar city. Amazing sheesha and best hamous beruiti that have had even better than what we get in dubai. Very humble staff very accommodating and kind. Visited twice during my stay of 4 days in dakar definitely will visit again in next trip.

Think delicious Lebanese food, good service, great band "OLA" that plays there twice a week and all that in a cozy location. One of the best - if not the best - restaurants Dakar has to offer!!!
