Lots of expats, though. The menu is pretty ample. Al fresco dining with ceiling fans to keep you comfortable.

Our local guide recommended this excellent local restaurant in Lome. The open-air restaurant had an extensive selection of menu choices from French to West African to tasty pizzas which were large enough for two to share. The service was attentive, and the bathrooms were clean. I found a small boutique tucked away in one corner of the restaurant that had... More

Good food, excellent atmosphere, very pleasant staff, good security. The best recommendations for relax evening after long trip to Lome. The vanilla icecream with berries - the best in Lome. Don't get afraid and uninppresed with non-asphalted road to it.

Excellent recommendation from a colleague. Great service and an excellent price to boot. Free bread and nibbles and 1 litre steins. I had the filet de boef with Roquefort sauce followed by a crepe Suzette. Very good indeed!

Service is really more than ok and food too (French, seafood,Pizza, salads...) but you mostly come here for the atmosphere in the nice quite garden. Menu could use a little creativity, but nearly everything is good. Salads are nice in the heat of togolaise lunchbreak. But you have to be there before 1pm to be served. Overall really good choice,... More

I went out to eat with team mates from work. The food was very good, in a nice clean setting. There are options to eat outside or inside, both are good with the benefit of being inside including airconditioning if it's hot. We really enjoyed ourselves.

A typical Lomé restaurant, in that the menu is enormous, with everything from pizza to coq au vin being offered. Everything we had was well done, and service was pretty good-- our larger group was served almost simultaneously. Keep your expectations in check, as although this is the top restaurant in town on TripAdvisor, this is a very good, but... More

This is a "must go" restaurant in Lome, Togo. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant. They have a fun parrot who whistles and sings up front. There is a no pressure gift shop offering local trinkets as souvenirs if you wander in. The staff is excellent. Very attentive, glad to explain menu items and offer suggestions. They speak English too... More

This restaurant will not disappoint, the staff is experienced, and speak English and takes their time to explain dishes if you ask. The antelope and mushrooms is amazing. The resident parrot Is fun to hear as well, if you are in lome, you must have ash last one meal here.
