Great experience dreamed about going to an actual lighthouse all my life made it at age 40! Worth your time to see Dakar from the top!

Had a racist experience here. The bouncer at the door did not let my friend in for apparently wearing flats and literally immediately after, let someone else with flats. Incredible rude and is respectful staff

I recommend a climb or a run instead of taking the bus at the base of the hill.

It allows you enjoy the scenery while getting a good workout. And then take a climb onto the top of the beacon and see the city.

I went here Sunday night for birthday celebration on advice of my tour guide. I was dropped off by taxi at entrance and had to walk up a very long hill to get to the top. There was a bus at bottom of hill but no one approached me to let me know the bus takes you to the restaurant. This is my first visit here. How would I know? I reached the top 15 mins later exhausted and tired. What if I had heels on? Food excellent but very slow service. Waitress forgot my water after I had finished eating and brought it 1.5 hours later at end of meal. No one came to see if I wanted another cocktail as well. I felt like I had to chase waiter down to get second drink. No one came to say how is your meal, etc. The live music was excellent as well as the views and food. My suggestion is to have bus driver at entrance asking people if going to restaurant and if need ride to the top. Also suggestion to have waiters approach to see if everything ok or need another drink etc. I would have had more cocktails but I don’t feel like I need to chase waiter down to get drink if I am a paying customer.

my first visit since a while as the restaurant was being refurbished. it was a great brunch experience! very family friendly. The lady owner, saloum saloum, was so welcoming! I understand that some pressure is made on the waiters to watch and remove things on the clients tables quickly but they need to be careful not to be too pushy and rush clients. strongly recommended place for a family brunch.

Great guided tour of the lighthouse. The restaurant is located on what looks like a huge deck with beautiful ocean views. Great food and fun music and dancing after!

This is a fairly nice walk on a path surrounded by lush vegetation up to a lovely bar and restaurant at the top. We only had drinks so I can’t comment on the food but the spot is lovely and the view is unbeatable

from the base of lighthouse we took the shuttle to the top

The views were stunning and one should visit during sunset

After that it went downhill like the sunset

The lighting was so poor we struggled to read the menu. Even the waitress had to use her own light to take the order

The drinks took more than half hour to arrive which was incredible considering there were only 8 tables occupied that day

Seafood Starters were ok.

The mains were a disaster

The prawns was mushy and not fresh
Fish was also overcooked and not fresh
Chicken was edible, noodles were above average but lacking in ingredients. Beef was also overcooked.

The service was inattentive and slow

They brought 7 sets of cutlery even though there were 8 of us and we waited over 15 mins for the 8th set.

Most service staff stood around looking bored and disinterested the whole night

Some training is recommended.

Bonjour Beachbummer75, Nous sommes désolés de votre mauvaise expérience au Phare et nous vous remercions pour votre retour. Pour l'éclairage, sachez que nous sommes un restaurant Lounge d'ou le très faible éclairage en terrasse et plus éclairée à l intérieur. C est ce qui marque l'ambiance du Phare notamment sa scène musicale. Aussi, il peut arriver qu'il y ai des soucis sur la nourriture ou le service mais jusqu'à présent vous faites partie des rares qui se sont plaints (50% d'habitués en frequentation) et nous en sommes sincèrement desolés. Nous vous invitons à revenir pour remédier à ce mauvais souvenir. Sachez que si vous decidez de revenir et que vous n'êtes pas satisfaits, dans notre politique clients, nous n'hesitons pas à changer le plat si il ne convient pas ou faire un geste commerciale en cas de soucis en service... Nous restons à l'l'écoute. Encore Merci
