Ngala Lodge Restaurant

Ngala Lodge Restaurant is a truly unique establishment, which can be found on Atlantic Boulevard, in the Fajara region of the Gambia. It is found within the Ngala Lodge hotel, which is a hotel with a difference; the grounds are stunning, with beautiful tropical gardens, to which colourful and rare birds are frequent visitors. The property is set right on the edge of a picturesque sandy beach, with the lapping of the waves below adding to the pure and tranquil atmosphere which runs throughout the buildings. Ngala Lodge is permeated throughout by beautiful examples of art, with paintings and sculptures to be found in the restaurant, buildings and gardens, reflecting the owners' passion for art. This property is a tropical oasis almost second to none! The main success of the hotel is due to the obvious care and attention the owners' have invested in it; they proudly rebuilt it from a barren and rundown residence into the admirable property that it is today.

The hotel itself is separated into two different sections: Ngala Manor and Ngala Lodge. The Manor is made up of four large, individually designed suites set out over two floors; all enjoy an amazing view over the hotel's grounds and picturesque gardens and over the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Ngala Lodge, on the other hand, includes an amazing nine top quality suites set over two floors, each of which is individually designed, adding a personal touch. The suites are truly luxurious, with a private balcony or garden attached. The most recent addition to the hotel is the Atlantic Wing, featuring five beautiful and elegant suites.

The Ngala Lodge Restaurant is certainly one of the highlights of the experience in general; it is obvious that much love and care has been invested into the dining experience as well as with all of the bedroom suites. It is equally popular with both outside visitors as it is with guests of the hotel and is regularly frequented by both. The first thing that is notable about the restaurant is its outstanding location on top of a cliff, meaning that its views over the Atlantic Ocean are spectacular and unrivalled. Whether you prefer to dine inside or al-fresco, this restaurant is perfect, as it offers a covered area; with the interesting instalment of a Bedouin tent as the ceiling, as well as an outdoor terrace for those visitors who like to dine under the stars.

The Ngala Lodge Restaurant clearly puts time and effort into their dishes and into the customer service. Michael Marmoski, the Chef, directs a dedicated team who ensure that their friendliness and quality control creates a relaxing atmosphere, resulting in an unforgettable experience for every single guest.

The restaurant's menu is incredibly flexible and wide-ranging, which is evidenced by the breakfast. A vast variety of dishes are available for this particular meal and each of these is cooked to the guests' personal demands. You can attend the Ngala Lodge Restaurant for any meal throughout the day, such as lunch - which normally consists of a range of snacks, along with a suggestions board which changes daily. The dinner menu is a la carte and guaranteed to suit every personal taste. It changes every season, but always offers amazing fish dishes, which are prepared using fish fresh that has been bought from the local market that day, as well as meat dishes which utilise the best imported meat. An all-time favourite dish from the Ngala Lodge Restaurant is the Fruits de Mer for two, which includes grilled fish, calamaris, gambas, crab and rock lobster. To top it all off, there is always a daily special, which is a three course meal chosen specifically by the chef for each day. A favourite on the current menu is the pan-fried barracuda fish, which you will struggle to find served elsewhere in the world.

Perhaps most surprising about the Ngala Lodge Restaurant is the impeccable service; every member of staff will approach you with a smile without fail, a touch which is bound to brighten up your day. An additional feature of the restaurant is the entertainment; live music which is appropriate and unobtrusive definitely adds something invaluable to the dining experience. The Ngala Lodge Restaurant offers more than enough seats in an comfortable environment which never seems cramped or over packed; quite on the contrary, visitors enjoy an intimate and personal atmosphere, which is bound to be remembered for years to come.
