A good Senegalese restaurant where the real star is the awesome live music lineups.

At one point or another you'll discover how much a part music plays in Dakar. Jazz lovers in particular are in luck, because one of the strengths of the local scene is the unique mix of that form with traditional African music. There are a number of venues, but this restaurant on Avenue Cheikh Anta Diop is one of the best - and a winner also because of its topnotch traditional local cuisine (a sure bet is anything involving fish, whether small portions or actual entrées). A variety of performers take the stage night after night - not just jazz but also reggae, hip hop, folk, and other forms - and it's not uncommon to get big names among them.
