Something's off.... As an experiment, we gnoshed and drank both at Bissap Baobob and Little-- Little was TOO disappointing; I wish I hadn't gone. It's changed in the last couple years. The Banana Drop was disgusting (tasted like dish soap) and the peach melba-- although it's lack of tradition is not at fault-- was made with disgusting cheap vanilla ice cream and it had two tablespoons of SOUR mangoes. The chef needs to taste the food before it goes out, take it off the menu or get better quality ingredients! The melba was GROSS.
No clue about customer service. I went here for dinner with two friends early on a Saturday night. The food was very good, but we waited so long for our table to be cleared that we didn't bother ordering dessert. We sat waiting for our check for a good 20 minutes. And suddenly the place started filling up. Still, we waited. Finally someone came over to us - to ask if we could move to the bar while we wait for our check because they needed the table!! Being good little former foodservice workers, we did what we were told, and were left standing at the bar for at least another 10 minutes waiting for our check. I don't know why we didn't just walk out. I realize they were busy, but come on, there are only like 10 tables in the whole place. Never again.
Funnest Little place on Earth!. My first time at Little Baobob I fell in love with the place! The food is wonderful and authentic. I especially liked the shark. Cheap eats, original drinks with tamarind and ginger juice (my fav is the Rose). And after dinner they move the tables away to make room for dancing. Fun :)
This is why I come to SAN FRAN. A fantastic little getaway of a restaurant. The food was creative yet not too overpowering for Creole/Cajun food. It was not like food from New Orleans, much more ethnic and surreal. I truly enjoyed the homemade sweet rum. I could not get enough of it. If you get the chance to visit San Fran, you must hit this restaurant for a change of pace. Atmosphere was delicate and delightful. Raphael, the co-owner was most hospitable. Tell him Christian sent you.
Are you sure this is Senegalese?. I went to this restaurant because a friend of mine recommended it to me. I went expecting Senegalese food and got Caribbean/Creole instead. Which was fine for me because I love that stuff. The food was really good and very filling. The service wasn't the hottest thing as they kept us waiting a while. But it's a small, intimate place that was quite popular. I would certainly go back again, it was pretty good
