Not so good, not fresh at all, overpriced and look dirty inside... Not at all Italian as the name could suggest ... Frankly there are much better places in COTONOU to visit

This is a very nice restaurant, located centrally in the city. The Ambiance is great - very relaxing and ups your appetite. The food is very good - not very large portions but quite filling and very well prepared.

The fame of the Sorrento in town is not worth the value. Is a decent restaurant but not so exceptional. Pizza is fine, not the best in town anyway, and their "foi grasse" is really good. Other dishes are on the average level.

We were a group of four and visited for some lunch here. The place interior and yard is beautiful though it is next to busy main street. The menus were in French and English, but be prepared to speak some French to be understood. You could say that the food, service and price level were in an average level. Nothing... More

Used to be better. A moody restaurant. Has a good ambiance but the food is getting worse. ThE fish was not fresh and the portions poor. I was very disappointed this time around. I have been going there for the past twenty something years, but will definitely rethink it another time.

I had lunch here at two occasions with a group of app 7 to 12 persons. To facilitate ordering, choice was limited to "fish or meat". I took at both occasions the fish. It was OK, but rather basic. Certainly not a menu, inciting you to come back on your own. Service is friendly.

I was invited to dine in this restaurant by some friends who live and work in Cotonou. Once inside, I find the bar area coquettish with lots of nice bibelots and one could feel the touch of Marseille acutely. We ordered some "Kirs " and was quite surprised that there is only for one person and not for 2 as... More
