Efficient servers, large choice of tasty Mediterranean dishes and local products on the buffet : sea food soup, various salads, carpaccio, prawns, braised fishes like thiof, hogfish or... More

Beautiful venue and fairly good service. Prices are decent. For some reason i have never been particularly impressed by the food.

I ended back at this place 3 times voluntarily during my 10 day stint in Senegal. Great food, ambience, AND music. BTW, the shrimps look like small lobsters. For the most part the food was very well seasoned (two people in our group tried and expressed extreme dislike for the seafood soup), the bread was always fresh and warm, and... More

The place is classy and not cheap. However I order a grill plate (beef & mutton) and the meat was 90% fat. To make things worse the mashed potatoes were laced with garlic. To say the quality of the meat was poor is an understatement, it was a scam.

Took my wife on a date to Alkimia Restaurant and was nicely surprised by the the quality of food, design of the dishes, and service. I knew it was a high-end restaurant and I was expected nothing less. Well it did not disappoint. The chef obviously knows his way around the menu, dishes were flying and the whole atmosphere was...

Choice for in (cold) and out with potential live acoustic music and nicely grilled meet. Your kids can also hang out even late. One of... More
