After a heavy day at work and the explosive chaos exploring the HLM market with friends, I was delighted with the class, ambience and peaceful dinner we had at Farid. The restaurant is beautifully appointed. The service quite friendly and helpful. We came "early", at 7pm and were the first people at a table. The restaurant filled up by 9pm.... More

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!!!

Beautiful place, great food and outside sitting arrangement is very appealing. Nice to grab couple of beers along with some good Mediterranean or french cuisine.

We were invited by our client and spent an excellent time. I cannot recall all we ate but everything was good, tasty and varied. Mint tea at dessert was one of the best things!
