Restaurant Babel

Spanish in Malabo

A challenge to find as it has no sign, this stylish restaurant is worth seeking out, particularly for lunch. The fish is excellent: try the bilolá – a local shellfish. Wok-cooked tofu and vegetables are good starters and salads are worthwhile. It's slightly less successful at dinner as not everything on the menu is available and it's quite pricey.

There's a covered garden at the back that's good for drinks, but there are no tables for eating.
