    This is a nice little place to come and have steak and fries in the neighborhood! The service is a little slow, but that just gives you more time to talk to your dinermate! They serve a variety of foods from "Guinean" spaghetti to fish platters. It is not bad and you can take two people there and eat like a king for under 10 bucks! Drinks and all!

    Favorite Dish: I enjoy the steak that has a gravy sauce with fries and of course a bottle of wine or a few heines!!!

    Good food, good price

    This is a little "hole in the wall" kind of place! Great sitting area right outside facing the ocean/hotel. It has some really well done beef brochettes and grilled chicken dishes. The service is very good and they are friendly.

    The only thing is that there can be a bunch of dogs hanging around waiting to see if you " throw them a bone!"

    Also, some of the locals will kind of hassle you while you are eating for your scraps... it is very depressing and I usually give them money instead, but have come to find out that they want both! Oh well, when in Rome...

    Favorite Dish: I enjoy the beef brochettes with fries and a couple bottles of heineken beer nice and chilly!

    The best part about the area, is there are TONS of taxis! You can grab one right in front of the Hotel, or walk down to the main road (1 min walk) and pick one up cheaper! This area is a mecca for taxis because it is kind of in the middle between downtown and everywherer else!

    From here to downtown, should not pay more than 5 GNF and to matam, about 7 GNF. Always go 2-3 thousand less than what they say at first! The difference is negligable, but they actually respect you more if you haggle!!!

    Of course that is for a taxi on your own! If you feel like sharing, you may only have to spend about 1-2 thousand GNF, but it is very cramped... about 7 people to a car!

    There are many shops that are permanent fixtures outside the hotel! They are open most of the day and sell all kinds of things from masks to drums! Expect to pay a lot more than if you went downtown and walked around!

    There have been some things that I have seen there that I have not seen in other locations, so sometimes you just need to go there repeatedly and argue till you get to a good price, but be careful... these guys will only bargin so long because they have a constant flux of traffic and will not be hesitant to say "ok... bye bye"

    What to buy: I like the masks and statues the best, but once again... you can find some of this stuff cheaper and have a little adventure if you just take a taxi downtown and walk a bit!

    This painting I bought was about 200,000 GNF, but I haggled down to 125,000GNF!

    What to pay: Depends what you want. Could be anything!
