I have during the years been eating here 3 times. The food was allways o.k. But not as good as the prices make you expect. And we allways wated some time. This last time it was terribbely hot.

This used to be an atmospheric little beach bar, with leather settees and live music. In recent years it has been "improved", to provide more covers and more space. As a result it now lacks atmosphere (not unusual for the Gambia) and is frequently almost deserted, although the addition of an open air extension overlooking the beach provides a nice... More
