Mali Restaurants

  • Nioro du Sahel - good food.

    This is the second time I've eaten here and it's not bad at all. Very friendly welcome and cheap as well. After being dry practically all the way through Mauritania, it's good to know you can get nice fresh bottles of Castel, the local brew, from the maquis next to the restaurant. Just ask the serving person to get you some or one of the local kids...

  • On the riverside at Mopti.

    Probably the best meal we had in Mali. Well prepared, well served and not too expensive considering the reputation they have. We ate in the pleasant garden just steps from the Niger river.Update since my trip in January 2009 - David Guindo, the owner died two years ago and to say the least the resto has gone to pot. There is a group of young boys...

  • Maquis a Bamako

    A small resto located in Badalabougou, on the south side of the river. The food is good and cheap, Kadia ,the owner is very friendly. At 8 in the evening,as she is part of the local "feed the children effort", about 40 local kids come around for a bit of food that she hands out. A good chance for you to do your bit as well as 20000 cfa buys a sack...

  • Good stop between Bko and Mopti at San.

    Stopped here for lunch on the road from Bamako up to Mopti. Nothing special but very friendly, nice atmosphere and very cold Castel to wash the dust down. There are rooms but I didn't see them. San also has a nice mosque that's worth the time to have a look at, not the same size as Djenné but in the same style.

  • See what's available!

    Going to the markets and see, what is available, was always the most exciting part for us! And the meals out of what was there, were always quite an adventure! Have you ever tried a Yams stew?? Or tomato stew with peanuts?From the mother of my fosterchild Fatoumata I learnt, that the women of her village are now planting their own vegetable...

  • Rice cakes

    Little stalls selling freshly cooked rice cakes were found everywhere. These cakes were deliclious.I must admit I wasn't particularly careful about what I ate in Mali, most restaurants were simple in the extreme or just street stalls - but I was not ill once during the two weeks we were there!

  • Good food

    Set inside its own grounds (which means that generally speaking the hustlers and beggars stay out) Chez Baba makes for a relaxing night out. Food is generally the same wherever you go, no great culinary delights, but hearty and good food.One very unsual feature at this restaurant was the table lights - glass bottles with candles covered in plastic...

  • Tessalit restaurant

    Tessalit is a very small village in northern Mali. It is the border town towards Algeria. We spent 24 hours there, hoping that they would let us pass, although we did not have a "permission de circulation"....To pass the time, we decided to go out for dinner. We found this place where we got a typical Malian goat stew - quite an experience!!!

  • L'Olympien

    Cuisine francaise. They have good pizzas. Ok I know you're not going to Mali to eat pizzas. But you know sometime it's good to be sure of what you're eating.They have very good fish dish as well (Capitaine)

  • Le Lagon

    Very nice view, very quiet area, this restaurant is located 15 km outside Bamako. You can have a choice of local food.

  • En général, les restaurants...

    En général, les restaurants et les hôtels proposent tous les mêmes plats à base de riz sauce ou de capitaine.On conseille à Ségou l’'Auberge' : succulentLe repas complet en général est compris entre 3000 et 4000 F CFAIl nous semble aventureux de se restaurer dans les gargottes locales en raison du manque d’hygiène et de l’incertitude sur la qualité...

  • The Hotel Casino Bamako, There...

    The Hotel Casino Bamako, There is also an Italian restaurant owned by Luigi Luga that is fairly good.The atmosphere is great in the Casino is special.. it is hard to put it into words, but special is one of them...A must see... The ribs at the Casino are to die for. I could never get enough of the food at Luigi's place (sorry but I can't remember...
