Gambian Food

Gambian food is prepared from fresh seasonal ingredients, it is very tasty and just a little bit spicy. Tasty food is served all day at Footsteps Ecolodge only 2 minutes walk away.


Delicious Gambian dishes using local produce

Simple meals can be prepared in the well equipped kitchen and shopping for provisions can be an interesting part of your holiday, although there is a small store just a few minutes walk away. If you intend to relax and let others do the cooking (and washing up) the restaurant is a short stroll through the garden where the chefs prepare delicious food and the dining is very convivial. A choice of European and Gambian dishes is on offer daily and for that special occasion you can book a sumptuous lobster dinner and eat it as the sun goes down.
