    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant and bar is an excellent place to sit outside and watch the main street in Ouagadougou. They have nice white linen tablecloths, excellent waitresses, a good menu and cold beers. They even have take-away pizzas you can phone ahead for. I just stopped by for a drink, but had a nice beer and watched the city go by slowly. That's Ouagadougou for you. If you are bar hopping or just want to people watch - this is a great place for a drink.

    Food runs along the pizza and burger route, but they offer a few meals, lots of desert, wines and some wild sounding cocktails.

    Open 6pm-Midnight 7 days a week.

    Zaka: Live music and food

    Zaka is in the middle of the lively citycentre with marketstalls and mopeds, but when you enter the courtyard built in traditional Mossi style you are in another world.

    Zaka is a nice place to enjoy life music while having dinner. It seemed to be already a favourite place for travellers in the past. When we visited Zaka at our first evening in Ouagadougou in 2013 we were introduced to traditional music at balafon and djembé. We took our dinner (chicken and salad) and hung around for some time with some drinks.
