This Mixte restaurant is owned by a Belgy-Senegalese couple : Christian provides in 5 languages perfectly spoken (Dutch, French, English, German, Spanish) a friendly welcome and traditional Belgian sense of humour together with good tips (and local language tips in Wolof, Sere and Diola!) and crunchy stories to quickly understand a lot of this amazing country, while Madeleine does more than enough to ensure guests experience the best quality service ever.
