The Green Mamba Garden

Reviewed By JohnFSaunders - Colchester, United Kingdom

Spacious Gardens with plenty of rooms between the tables, especially for a more romantic occasion. The buffet allows you to choose and mix your own ingredients which are then individually cooked in a wok. Several choices of sauces for varying tastes. Just different!

Paradiso Bar & Restaurant

Reviewed By Sibo S - London, United Kingdom

This restaurant is in the Senegambia strip and very much part of the tourist scene. Great food at very reasonable prices, but best thing is the staff are always 'on it' - they are very efficient and friendly and always busy and energetic. Loads on the menu, and I can certainly vouch for the chicken and pizzas. A firm favourite with my friends and me.

Scala Restaurant

Reviewed By andycat - Rochdale

I am at a loss as to why people rave about this restaurant. I think you pay for the surroundings rather than the food. Contrary to what is said, this is not the best place to have a steak. That honour goes to Alex Bar.

Chose the best fish dish, lobster and tiger prawns, husband never tasted anything like it.I had sizzling squid and prawns, rice and never tasted anything like it. Staff were amazing, entertainment, young man balancing a tray on his foot and on his head, very amusing. Lovely experience and best place on the strip to eat.

Reviewed By Tigram1 - Kalmar, Sverige

Went there in January with friends of me who know the owner. Then the food were excellent the portions ok and you got full, service good.
Next time we went there was without my friend who know the owner. Then the service were very low, the food portions very small.
We choose fright potatoes and got sex thin slice for a main course.
Had asked for extra vegetables but we didn’t got it.
The place is clean what is positive.
How can a place treat people different depending of who you know! The bribing culture is all Owen. That’s so terrible bad so I can’t find words.

Calypso Bar and Restaurant

Reviewed By Famrave - Bristol, United Kingdom

What could be better than sipping cocktails - eating delicious garlic prawns or excellent steak kebabs - whilst watch crocodiles lumbering passed??? Really great place to sit and watch the river and the wild life!! If you feel adventurous you can walk back - through Baka market - the Botanical Garden - or the fishing village. It is at Cape Point which is taxi ride from the main resorts in Kololi - but well worth it!!

The Kora

Situated on the 'chic-er' side of the strip, The Kora has been dubbed the little oasis in the heart of the sometimes manic village of the Senegambia area. Serving a varied and international choice of cuisine, The Kora mainly focuses on a grilled style of cuisine using only the freshest catches and finest cuts of food. We are also very well known and popular for our bar (we challenge you to show us a better looking bar in The Gambia) containing what is quite probably the largest alcohol collection in The Gambia and dispensing the finest cocktails on the West African coast. Don't take our word for it - read our reviews and hear what the customers say themselves! An eclectic selection of music accompanies you at your table, setting you in a relaxed mood either around our outdoor bantaba (terrace) or inside amongst rich West African wood architecture. Soak in the relaxed yet intimate atmosphere and enjoy local art works/pictures/crafts/paintings that surround you.Once we have satisfied your belly and soothed your soul allow us to stimulate your mind and senses as we become a lively and friendly bar attracting a true cross section of Gambian residents and tourists in a welcoming melting pot.

We have come here for many years, now, and if the restaurant continues like this, we shall not go there anymore. The service is still good of course, but the food is worsening.
The only fish they offered during our 4 weeks stay was butterfish. We also suspect the chips are no longer made from fresh patatoes but Industrial and frozen, the vegetables are scarce. They also managed to bring chicken wings instead of chicken satés with peanut sauce, as ordered. What is the menu for, if they bring whatever they like. The menu is already very limited.

Captain's Table

Reviewed By Lesley B - London, United Kingdom

A few minutes walk from our hotel, the staff are welcoming and the menu offers a reasonable choice. The food was good but don't go if you are in a hurry as the restaurant is popular but there aren't many staff so service can be a bit slow. That said, we would return as it is a nice plCe to eat.
