    L-Mezze: Great Lebanese food!

    by lemondrop Written Feb 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    L-Mezze is slightly outside the city center on the beach road. It's a nice, welcoming place where you will be well taken care of. The food is well prepared and delicious. The manager(the big guy) is a real character!

    Favorite Dish: It's all good...you can't go wrong here.

    Nice! Manager and staff

    NEM 24: PHO ON THE GO

    by DAO Updated Jan 1, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Nem 24 must be the friendliest restaurant in Lomé. I was walking past this very nice, open-fronted restaurant when I somehow ended up speaking with one of the owners. I just wanted to look inside and one of the nice waitresses invited me to have a look. Then one of the 2 Vietnamese owners invited me to take photos. I was actually headed to another restaurant, but decided that I could do with a cold beer. The bar is an amazing sort of multi-coloured art installation and well stocked. They advertise outside that they offer ‘Service Rapide’. They are not joking. As I sat down with my instantly produced cold beer, I watched the other tables. The food looked and smelled lovely. They also had several waitresses who seemed to run everywhere. And have fun. You can just feel the great vibe here and they make sure you only have to tilt your head to get served.

    Nem simply means spring rolls, but they offer a lot more. Especially the Vietnamese national noodle soup dish – Pho. If you are looking for an inexpensive meal with a fantastic environment – take it slow and have a Pho. And a few cold beers as well.

    They advertise they are open 24 hours a day!

    Les Brochettes de la Capitale: Overrated popular BBQ place

    by lemondrop Written Feb 19, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All the guidebook go on about how great this place is. It's basically just glorified street food. It's an outside(beside a busy road) joint for grilled meats. I ordered the chicken and was disappointed with what arrived.....a bunch of gangly, gristle and bone with little of the juicy meat I was expecting. For the price you could do much better.

    Favorite Dish: Nothing I had was very good.

    Equateur Hotel Restaurant: Nice breezy hotel bar/restaurant

    by lemondrop Written Feb 19, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After checking in to the Equateur Hotel, I hit this rooftop restaurant. The service was friendly and laidback. Birds flew straight through the place, as it is open air with a thatched roof. There is a bar and a nice patio area to relax in also..very nice. The food is good, the music listenable, and the breeze refreshing.

    Favorite Dish: The chicken in groundnut sauce.

    Well done Nice layout The patio Juicy Pineapple for dessert

    Restaurant Le Galion: Hotel Le Galion

    by georeiser Written Nov 12, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant at Hotel le Galion is recommended in the Lonely Planet Guide. Althought the hotel is a budget place, the restaurant is not among the cheapest places to eat. But the french food is great. Hotel le Galion is located in a back street of the southwest end of Boulevard du 13 Janvier.

    Restaurant Le Triskell: Le Triskel

    by georeiser Updated Dec 31, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant Le Triskell is among the finest french restaurants in Lomè. Their speciality is typical french cuisine, pasta and pizza made in a stone oven. The restaurant is inside a garden with some animals in a cage. Also a big turtle was in the pool beside the tables. The prices are high to be in an African country.

    Fifty-Fifty: Free Time Bar Restaurant

    by georeiser Updated Dec 31, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The African restaurant "Free Time" is located at the southwest end of Boulevard du 13 Janvier. There are 3-4 other outdoor African restaurants in this block along the boulevard, but they are all best known as "Fifty-Fifty", named after the first restaurant. However Free Time Bar Restaurant had the best food. This was my favorite eating place due to the quality and price. The location is also among the best in Lome.

    AL DONALDS: FAKE MCDONALDS

    by DAO Updated Sep 30, 2012


    This is a somewhat famous imitation of the world famous McDonald’s restaurants. They serve burgers and soft drinks as you can probably guess. They even imitate the famous ‘arch’. I am guessing that trademark laws are not strong in Togo. So if you have a need for fast food and a photo opportunity – here you are.

    Al Donald: Al Donald Fast Food Restaurant

    by georeiser Written Nov 12, 2010

    Al Donald Fast Food Restaurant is mentioned in the Lonely Planet Guide because it look like a McDonalds restaurant. The name and signboard is almost like it, and it's kind of funny. Fastfood is their speciality, but don't expect it to be as fast as McDonalds. This is a good place to have a meal if you arew tired of African food. The price of a burger with french fries and coke is about 3 USD. The restaurant owner is a young Lebanese man.

    CLOSED FOREVER.
    This restaurant appears in at least one guidebook and several websites. It is long gone now. Sad as it sounded nice and had its own garden.
