Burkina Faso Restaurants


    How good is the food here? The former President, Blaise Compaoré, had them deliver pizza to the Presidential Palace. And his wife used to dine here with visiting dignitaries. A few years ago a visiting French film star forgot to pay his bill. When he returned 2 years late the restaurant sent the bill to hi hotel – and got paid. I love that story...


    I stumbled upon La Forét by accident when I was out walking one day. Their sign outside stated “Bar - Restaurant – Piscine”. Given that I like beer, good food and it was at least 40C (104F) outside with no shade, this place sounded great. If you don’t speak French – the word ‘piscine’ means swimming pool. I had a wonder through the somewhat...

  • Burkinabe beers

    Surprisingly enough there are various beer brands in Burkina. All of them produced locally are lager ones and come usually in 650ml bottles. My favorite one was SO.B.BRA which had a light bitter taste and excellent color. Beers come at a price of less than 1.5€ at restaurants and are readily available even in small road side canteens.Another more...

  • Water consumption

    It is widely adviced that no traveller should consumpt tap water due to health safety reasons. This rule applies to Burkina as well. Luckily there are bottled water brands (Jirma, Lafi) and bottled water can be easily found almost everywhere (even road side canteedns) and it's what you get when you order water in the restaurants. Where electricity...

  • Millet beer

    Chapalo, is a homemade beer from red millet. It's made by families as source of income. This "beer" takes a special procedure to make. In earthenware pots, milled is mixed with water and then boiled. Then it is mixed with yeast at the end of the 2nd day and then left to ferment overnight. Even though then ready for consumption fermentation...

  • Burkinabe food

    While in Burkina we didn't try any street food (so I can't tell about its safety and cost). We tried mainly restaurants that were listed in our guide books or were recommended by our car driver. Generally portions were good, prices rather expensive for local standards (5-10€ per person). Meals served were meat (mainly beef or chicken), rice (of...

  • Good atmosphere in Banfora.

    The Calypso is just 300 meteres from the Hotel Comoé, in the same street. Nice atmosphere under the large straw parasols in a nice garden, with some nice african music in the backfround.The service does tend to be a bit slow if there are too many people but there again, usually if a place is full it's generally good !! Braised capitaine,...

  • A bit spartan

    This was the only place open close to "Les Cocotiers" at 10 o'clock at night. As I had been travelling from Segou in Mali since 11 that morning, I went in and was pleasantly surprised. The food was good, a friendly welcome and very, very cheap. A bit spartan but when you're hungry....

  • Breakfast in Burkina Faso

    Before venturing outside the city, Mamadou (see general tips on guides) and I would drink coffee at a sidewalk cafe in Bobo Diaoulasso. The coffee was served in bowls, and one drank it holding the bowl with both hands. I mixed in milk. Good coffee is available in a few places, but often Nescafe was the only option available. At this one particular...

  • best pasta served by touaregs

    This is a rather posh restaurant in the residential area of Ouagadougou. It is owned by an Italian man who has two more restaurants and a hotel in Niger.All the staff are Touaregs from Niger and they serve delicious Italian food and some nouvelle cuisine style food from local ingredients. I would die for a plate of tagliatelle du pape, lovely...

  • African food in a clean and peaceful...

    The food here is excellent value for money, it is not as cheap as some street food, but it is guaranteed to be cleaner, and you can try all the local specuialties without any worry of catching some nasty germ. You can have a great meal for about 4-6 dollars. all salads, especially chicken salad,also rice with peanut sauce and my friend Bintou...

  • People watching from the cafe terrace

    This is probably one of the best people-watching spots in all of Ouagadougou (at least if you're interested in seeing both locals and tourists; if tourists are your preference, then go to a hotel pool bar!). From the terrace, you can see over one side of the market, especially the bike/moped park, and the chaotic street corners, with people, bikes...

  • Eating out in Burkina

    Cheap restaurants abound in most towns: they're often called 'maquis', and you can usually get a large bowl of rice or pasta and sauce, and sometimes a bowl of salad, for the equivalent of a couple of dollars or euro. The two most common dishes in such places are riz sauce and riz gras. The first is plain rice covered in a sauce, the second rice...
