    Le Pilier

    Hands down, this is the place for fine Italian fare. Enjoy a plethora of pastas, ranging from various raviolis to lasagne and even gnocchi dripping in gorgonzola. Dine in their air-con equipped lounge, within the vibrant courtyard terrace, or downstairs in the Taverne (evenings only), which serves great pizza.

    Le Diamangou

    Put aside your fear and grumbling insides to walk the plank out to this established boat restaurant. The views can't be beat, and the lemon chicken and other fare aren't bad either. Like La Flottile, this place isn't in the safest neck of the woods, so arrange a taxi after sunset.

    La Flottile

    The shady garden confines of this friendly restaurant, west of Palais du Congrés, are a perfect place to indulge in some of the Niger River's tastiest fish. The capitaine (Nile perch) is excellent. It's not safe to walk here after sunset, so organise a taxi.

    Le Dragon d'Or

    Slurp delicious Vietnamese pho (a noodle soup with coriander, bean sprouts and beef), sharpen your teeth on frog legs, or work your chopstick magic on tasty stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts and fresh ginger. The Saturday night buffet is also superb.

    La Cascade

    With friendly service and great Italian, French and Lebanese fare, this restaurant is justifiably popular with expats, travellers and well-to-do locals. We'll let you decide which is cheesier, the delicious pizza or the artificial waterfall…

    Byblos

    This great Lebanese restaurant, with thatched garden pavilions and open-air ambience, has some of the best tabouleh and hummus in Niger. It's on the pricey side, but its large set meals for two people are decent value.
