Pianeta: "Fish with your fingers" Cotonou Restaurant Tip by kbsunnyside

Cotonou Restaurants: 15 reviews and 29 photos

They don't open until 9:00ish and if something has come up with the family they won't open. There are 6 tables outside next to the grill and the sky is your ceiling. It's dark and quiet in the evening.

Favorite Dish: You'll choose from FRESH fish caught that day which will be grilled in a local style with a spicy sauce and a diced tomato/vegetable mix with a side of your choice. You eat with your hands. I always chose rice (harder to eat with your hands) or plantain. You can eat really well for a great price. I think with a beer it was US$2 or less.
