La Cabane Du Pêcheur

For a long time, I thought I’d been to La Cabane Du Pêcheur. And then I realized that the ‘surf shack’ in Les Almadies is called La Cabane du Surfeur and La Cabane Du Pêcheur is located in Ngor village, right where you get on the boat to to to Ngor Island. This is one area of confusion that I’m very happy to have cleared up since I found out that I love both places!

I started to catch on to the fact that they were two different restaurants when I noticed people liking and reposting from La Cabane Du Pêcheur’s Facebook page. Hmm… that ocean view didn’t look like Almadies, and that shot of the cute dining area certainly wasn’t familiar, oh – and that is definitely not the same entrance! Lightbulb: on.

By this time I’d figured out that La Cabane Du Pêcheur in Ngor was worth checking out. People loved it! Raved about it. And it looked like a great atmosphere. So I made our way over for lunch with friends one day and liked it so much that I went back ASAP with my husband for our weekly lunch date.

Nutshell review: It’s not hard to find, parking is easy, the restaurant is fun and casual, the food was delicious and so fresh, the view is amazing, service was quick and prices are very reasonable. You should totally go.

Now for some details. It’s a restaurant that specializes in fresh seafood, so if that’s not your thing, you may be out of luck. But for those of us who love to hear descriptions like ‘caught this morning’ or ‘just came in’, it’s wonderful. And I don’t know if it’s marinades or wood chips or magic, but something in the way they grill their seafood gives it amazing, accentuating flavor.

One final word of advice. The café gourmand dessert, do it.

(Oh, one more… if you go on a day that the lunch special is the blanquette in coconut sauce, do that too!)
