Fresh and tasty. A pleasant experience for a quick afternoon bite. The chef previously worked for the Japanese embassy and knows how to present and prepare the food. All in all a great place for Lunch. 10 points.

Camillia is as beautiful as her son's cuisine is elegant, delicious, and generous. Everyone was very happy with their order. Simple, delicious and reasonably priced, perfectly located opposite the Centre Culturel français, downtown. It is definitely worth the visit, even if you have to come all the way from the other side of Dakar. You will not be disappointed.

Words cannot describe this amazing culinary experience!!!! The best dinner I've ever had in Dakar, frankly. The food was a fusion of thought ful Asian and European dishes. The flavors were excellent excellent excellent. i cant express how much we enjoyed each bite of food. Try the Assiete Mokai, yakitori, croustillant de chevre..... But our favorite was the dessert fondant... More

Great menu with a lot of choices!! Everything we tried was right on point and the subtle mix between spices, fruits and savory fresh ingredients makes you want more and more! A must to try when you are in town!
