Ngala is positioned on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic. The views from the restaurant and bar are delightful. As such, lunch is probably best time or go early evening for the sunset - later and you will miss the views. The food is of a good overall standard. Some dishes are extremely good but others are pretty ordinary. It may not be particularly Gambian, but the burgers are brilliant!!

Thank you for your comments. Yes, the views over the gardens to the ocean are unique. We do not serve Gambian cuisine as it is not in keeping with our style of cuisine and there are many local restaurants in the vicinity.

During our 14 day trip to Kololi a regular visitor to the area recommended Ngala Lodge, We arrived early to see a beautiful sun set and the views by the pool which were stunning.
We were lucky to book the Friday evening to listen to the jazz player and he was superb
A little confusion with our food order but it was quickly sorted out. Chicken Caesar salad was delicious as was the red pesto linguini with prawns.
Although we had phoned ahead and asked if we could use a credit card the machine did not work! It was quite embarrassing as we didn't have enough cash to cover the meal but the waiter agreed to call to our hotel complex the following morning to pick up the payment.

Thank you Debbie for your comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your evening with us. We are also happy that you enjoyed Vincent. I am sorry for the problem with the visa card payment. Credit card payments are recommended however in practice sometimes there are issues with the internet connection. Most of the problems we have are with MasterCard. With Visa there are less problems. From our side we do our utmost to continuously contact our bank when there are connection problems. We apologize for any inconvenience.
