I've been here a few times with groups of colleagues. It's a terrific place for a festive group dinner, whether indoors or in the garden. I'd classify the food as good, not extraordinary, but more than balanced by having a really nice, relaxed evening with...More

This is definitely my favorite place in Ouagadougou. The food is always good and the ambience is incredible. Such a peaceful and beautiful oasis in the city.

We went dining under the Mauritanian tent and that was exquisite. Somehow the place was empty. My colleague got to try the "tea ceremony" for the first time, and really enjoyed it. Place is safe, security at the front door look serious.

The "Gondwana Restaurant" has a very contemporary artsy feel with a definite African flair! The food is refined and creative. They even have duck on the menu, so there is an admixture of fine French cuisine as well! They also have nice cocktails and aperitifs....More

A mix of local cuisine and European, etc. Just a mix. Fresh food. May be considered pricey but nothing too outrageous. It has lovely outdoor seating and serves as an art gallery too. Everything is for sale. Mostly West African art. Worth the stop.

ate there twice this week for dinner. Had brochettes de boeuf which were delicious and the whole atmosphere is very peaceful, with African art all around. The garden area is also gorgeous. Woudl come back.

It is not as vegetarian-friendly as suggested on trip advisor, as there was only one vegetarian plate available (vegetables in coconut milk and curry sauce with rice). It was pretty tasty. We liked the décor very much.
