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.

This restaurant is run by Patrick, a Quebecois who has been in Lome for 15 years. He has created a small restaurant in a beautiful villa in the Kodjoviakope neighbourhood in South West Lome.
He and one member of staff were manning front of house on a busy lunchtime when we visited and the welcome was perfect. They were attentive without being over bearing and chatty without being overly familiar. The service was excellent.
The food was fantastic, if expensive, and whilst the restaurant itself was beautiful, it could have been anywhere. However, this place is not somewhere to go and soak up local atmosphere in Lome, it's somewhere to get fantastic food in calm and attractive surroundings.
Of the 3 top end restaurants I visited in Lome, this was the best in terms of food, staff, atmosphere, welcome and value (basically in every way).
The fish of the day (coryphene/mahi-mahi on my visit) was spectacularly good. Clearly very fresh, great size and perfectly cooked.
In summary, L'Hibiscus is expensive but worth the cost for the standard of the food, surroundings and service.
Favorite Dish: Starter - Mixed seafood/fish platter.
Main course - fish of the day simply grilled.
Dessert - Pain Perdu

This cozy place, and when I say that I mean the comfy booths, turns into a night club on the weekends, serves a lot of different food and spirits. We only went there between 4-11 p.m. on three different occasions. The gals who serve you are accommodating, speak some English and have a lot of smiles. Pizza is good, wine selection (not bad) and free WiFi. There are pool tables in the back and there are about 8 TV's playing football (soccer). Price for a pizza will run you about 3500 CFA's and a bottle of white 10,000 CFA's.
Favorite Dish: Pizza.

Dimly lit pizza restaurant providing excellent wafer thin based pizza in approximately 15 varieties. Costs between £2 and £4 (2000 - 4000 CFA) for a dinner plate sized pizza. All cooked in full view of customers on open wood fired oven. Outdoor street side seating also available on the main Lome to tsevie road.

I stopped here on the way back from Togoville and was in for a nice surprise. The terrace overlooks the sea with sand dunes away to the left,a small lagoon in front and the town just behind. Lovely view. Shame it was drizzling with rain most of the time I was there. The food's not bad either,although not cheap.

Favorite Dish: We bought this bottle of liqueur in the supermarket for drinking on Christmas Eve. It cost next to nothing (less than $5) and was very enjoyable. For those of you who are familiar with the South African Amarula, it is very similar indeed. In fact it is made from the berries of the Marula tree, just like its southern counterpart. Marula is a tree that is found only on the African plains, and its berries are apparently favoured by elephants. (do they get drunk on it like we do?)
I bought it because I like Amarula, my husband bought it because he liked the name. We both enjoyed it.

Favorite Dish: This was one of the stranger items we came across in the market: stones rich in calcium which pregnant women buy and eat! Each to their own I suppose, and I have heard some women have strange cravings during pregnancy! Brings a whole new meaning to rock cakes

Favorite Dish: I saw these little conical things for sale in several stalls in the markets. They are made from peanuts which are ground, shaped and then fried. I bought a bag-full to try and they were very nice indeed. Quite hard to bite into, and really quite spicy!

Castel Beer is widespread throughout Africa, I believe it originates in Ethiopia. I can certainly remember drinking it in East Africa in the past. Anyway, it is a very palatable lager type beer which goes with most foods. Best served cold.
