The best pizza in town. Thin crust, well prepared in wood-burning oven. Go for the food and not the ambiance and you will enjoy your experience. It's always good to get there earlier as the crowds start poring in about 7:30 pm. They have a very popular outdoor Seating or a/c'd indoor room.

ok...I am new in town....and this is one of the places to go and see......
Getting there is a nightmare because of the road.....and when you reach you find an updated looking place that badly needs a renovation.......
We were there for drinks only and the place was almost empty on a weekrnd evening.
The service ...... forget about,,,,,,,,
The place has potential due to the location......but big effort to be done,

Very warm welcome by André in his original typical restaurant near the central market. Sweets are the house specialty, my mango tart was excellent. Before I could enjoy fish salad, tasty gambas fritters, capitaine with yam couscous and eggplant gratin. All tasty and hearty.

Conakry is not a great place for good food. Le Cedre would not be remarkable anyplace other than Cky, but for Cky it is remarkable, and by other standards it is OK. It's packed with business/WaBenzi types most lunch times, being in the business/govt/diplomatic zone, and there were people standing around indoors waiting for a table. It was less than cool (inadequate aircon), I was sweating. It has a nice mirrored bar, well stocked, and I liked the paintings decorating the walls. The toilet (one only) is clean, no paper for the ladies. I ordered the fish, which was fresh and good, if not memorable or interesting; it came with plantains that were absolutely inedible, tough and rubbery. PLANTAINS in AFRICA that you can't eat? Maybe because Le Cedre is Lebanese, and it's not trying to present African food or local flavor. This says it all. There was LOTS of it, though: quantity over quality. I had locals in Cky take me to local restaurants, where the food was tastier and half the price, and there was local atmosphere. That's what I would advise visitors to try.

For Conakry, it's one of the good places to eat. Usually their "Plat du Jour" are tasty. Pizza is far from being authentic Italian but good enough for the area. The menu is varied and everyone can find his preferred choice.

When this place first opened it was nice. Now, however, it's gone downhill a bit. The food is average and the garden is a dump. You could smell everything coming from the kitchen (good and bad) and there are several people who just hang around the kitchen without purpose. The kitchen is adjacent to the garden so its hard to ignore them.

We got here in the rainy season - the place was wet and did not feel nice. It is built on stilts a little way over the sea. The time we were there it was low tide and we saw a lot of rocks around. The service was ok but really limited. May be we were there at the wrong time.

Went twice in a period of a month, and both times the food and service was excellent. My favorite are the blackened commando, which come freshly grilled with just a bit of garlic and lemon. Delicious! Not easy to find, but the neighbourhood is friendly and people will be more than willing to show you the way. Absolutely recommended.
