Restaurant & Bar

Welcome to
Big Tree
restaurant and bar

When you are enjoying a meal in our restaurant or a drink from the bar, you have an unrestricted view of the lush park and the big trees.

In fact, our restaurant is named after the huge baobab tree in the park, which is probably around 400 years old. You should try hugging the tree – if your arms can reach all the way around, your meal is free!

Local specialties and universal favourites

Get a taste of the great Gambian cuisine or stick to what you know from the global kitchen. The choice is yours.

Our chefs use as many local products as possible. Many of the vegetables used have been grown in our garden where they have been nourished by the sun.
7 am – 10 am


Give your day the best start with our breakfast buffet consisting of various freshly squeezed juices, yoghurts, pancakes, bread, marmelades, cheese, various sorts of eggs and coffee/tea.

After breakfast comes lunch. Even on the laziest of days, you will get hungry again. Our lunch menu has great options for both small and big appetites.
