  Restaurant at Auberge Grand Popo

The Auberge Grand Popo has a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach, set in beautiful gardens. It is open on 3 sides to take adfantage of the cooling sea breezes.
Food here is excellent. I had lamb tagine which was very nicely cooked and there was plenty of it. As usual in Benin the meat is of the highest quality and being organic is very tasty. The accompanying vegetables were also beautifully tasty and organic and I got a generous helping too. I couldn't fit in either starter or dessert as I was brought a basket of freshly baked French bread with really good quality butter, while I waited for my meal. I managed a couple of bottles of Beninoise beer though. The daily menu is written on a board and has about 6 starters and 6 main courses as well as desserts. There is a good choice and being on the beach there are plenty of fish dishes to choose from.
Service is very good, in a relaxed sort of way - not formal. Not many of the staff speak English but ordering was not much of a problem. For the quality of food and the location this restaurant is quite good value.
Dinner is about 4000 CFA (€6), Mineral Water 700 CFA (€1) and Beninoise local beer 1200 CFA (€2).
