Tips / Destination

Check out some of these top places to eat when you are in The Gambia.


Ngala Lodge
Ngala Lodge is a hotel and resort on the coast offering 24 guestrooms. It’s also home to one of the best restaurants in the country. Book a stay and sample the food or sleep in another hotel in Serrekunda and come here to eat.


Gida’s Garden
Gida’s Garden is another top spot in Serrekunda, known for its great grilled meats. Seafood is also available, and the flower-filled gardens make for an amazing setting. It’s worth booking ahead to make sure you get a table.


Butcher’s Shop
Butcher’s Shop is run by Moroccan celebrity chef Driss, and the elegant eatery serves steak, grilled fish and a variety of dishes from around the world. Try and bag a table on the terrace for a relaxing lunch looking over busy Kairaba Avenue.


Another famous spot is Calypso, which offers a deck with views over the water as well as private thatched huts in a garden, with a menu of fish, paninis, an African dish of the day and even a full English breakfast.


Sea Shells
Sea Shells might not have the most glamorous location by a highway, but the food is worth it. Dishes include coconut-dusted prawns, beef Wellington and curried chicken salad.
