    Le Sahélien

    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.

    Big Metro

    This little eatery with a pavement terrace is a great spot to catch local vibes and nosh on unpretentious yet tasty African staples. The braised fish of the day is superb. It's set on a busy thoroughfare so don't come expecting an intimate meal, but it's worth the noise for the tasty dishes and friendly service.

    It's a bit out of the centre of the action, but this great garden bar-restaurant with a French owner has an original decor, with colourful lanterns and funky colonial seats with retro faux-leather cushions. The menu features wood-fired pizzas (evenings only), meat grills, salads and pastas.

    Le Pêcheur

    The name gives it away: this is a fantastic seafood place where you'll enjoy fish fillet a la plancha (cooked on a griddle) and skewered gambas (prawns). Well worth the splurge – if only it had an outdoor terrace!

    Nopégali Plage

    You'll find no cheaper place for a sit-down meal in the centre. It's very much a canteen, but a good one, with friendly service and copious African dishes prepared like your Togolese grandma would make them.

    Brochettes de la Capitale

    This Lomé institution is somewhat suffering from its popularity and location on the increasingly polluted Blvd Circulaire, but it's still a cool place to devour lip-smacking kebabs with a beer.
