This bar/restaurant serves a very good variety of food and drinks. I had the beef skewers and it was very tasty. The food though comes after 1 hour of ordering it.

We came here for drinks. Fancy, lounge-y interior and helpful staff. Food looked good too. Perfect place to catch up with friends and close to several other great places in case you choose to escalate matters, as it were or just try something different.

Is a nice place to have a regular dinner. The food is good, specially the grilled stuff. Nice ambiance. The bar part of the place is not bad also. The other Bla Bla from Cartier Badala is also a nice place.

Pros: Beautiful space, super service, great wine selection. Cons: Food was not the best, beef brochettes and rabbit were over cooked and pricey. Will definitely go back for the drinks and music which is usually pretty good but wouldn't go back to eat.

Bla Bla's is a great restaurant and fun bar - the evening music is usually really good, and the crowd isn't too intense. Enjoyed it every time.

I've been to Bla Bla a few times when visiting Bamako and while the place is clean and can get lively at the weekend, it does charge a bit too much. Definitely a place to hang out if you are with a group and there...More
