I love how quickly new places (good ones!) are opening in Dakar. I feel like for every new place I try, two more pop up. Not a bad problem to have!
The most recent ‘it’ place we’ve been is Bayékou restaurant in Ngor village (not on the island). It first showed up on my radar via their Facebook page, and I love a good restaurant that is active on social media. Then I started hearing from people who had eaten there and all loved it. They raved about the beautiful setting, the relaxing ambiance and fun vibe, the incredible Italy-inspired food…
And they were right. You have to see this place – sit up on its rooftop terrace and soak it in – to believe that it’s in Dakar. And the food is every bit as good as everyone says (ceviche!). Prices are very reasonable, but portions are small. I’d love to see a broader menu eventually, but they are doing what they do very, very well.
Located in Ngor, back behind the Shell station and just off the parking lot where you go to get on the boat to the island.
