It may be difficult to locate this restaurant. It has a rich menu with wide selection of food and drinks. Delicious meals. Very cosy ambience and good service. Value for money.

Excellent food and attentive staff. Unfortunately they have poor English skills,so the service is not as personal as I would like for a top restaurant. But all over a pretty good ( and expensive) experience;)

I only visit Dakar briefly these days - but today I was there - and had a wonderful table d'hôte menu du jour (fixed price menu). It was really delicious and incredible value too at only 8'500 CFA francs for 3 courses - and that in arguably the very best restaurant in Dakar. You have the choice of the Menu... More

Alone I would have taken long to find La Fourchette hidden in a charmless side street of the city center. I came for a last drink with a friend regular of the restaurant. He was warmly welcomed by the manager. We chose a bottle of Chablis and 2 dishes from the eclectic menu. Our octopus ceviche and gambas risotto were... More

After nearly 2 weeks in Senegal I've finally found a restaurant who knows how to make his vegetarian food! I had the salad taco and vegetarian fajita. Both were huge portions and really tasty. The cost was a little expensive but worth it for the good food and relaxing atmosphere.

Went in for a quick lunch before moving along with my busy day on the recommendation of my cab driver, and was nicely surprised by a very friendly staff (though the place was busy with mostly business people), a menu that offered two sets of 3 course menus (one light and one copious and both very gourmet) at the bargain...

The deco sets the mood for an upmarket dinning experience in Dakar. After a well executed cocktail at the bar, served with "amuse bouche", I moved onto a fresh and delicious Octopus carpaccio, followed by a Tartare of sea bass, and finely concluded with a made to order Tarte aux pommes. The service was friendly and efficient. Definitely an address... More
