African in Atakpamé

The downstairs maquis (an informal, street-side eatery) with its enormous grill and informal atmosphere does a brisk trade with the town's moto-taxis. Upstairs is more upmarket, and the roof terrace is a nice spot to catch the evening breeze. It also doubles as a hotel, but the rooms need a freshen up – we recommend staying elsewhere.
