Real Strawberry Margaritas Sizzling Fajitas

Welcome to The Kora Bar & Restaurant
Situated on the chic side of the Senegambia strip in The Gambia, West Africa, this spacious and well established restaurant is a particular favourite among expatriates and returning tourists.

The food menu is unique and extensive, ranging from our famous sizzling fajitas to our indulgent seafood feast. The comfortable bar provides the largest selection of beverages anywhere in the country with a cocktail list to match.

Be sure not to miss the happy hour from 8-9pm or the weekend buzz when the bar turns into a stylish nightspot! The hand carved wood décor is impressive and should render the restaurant a tourist attraction.

Music is a hybrid cocktail of African gems, fresh and classic jukebox tunes and a healthy dosage of tasteful upbeat pop as the night begins to wear in.

The attentive and energetic management are there to give you the best possible dining experience with their personalised service.

A lounge area provides a relaxed ambiance to enjoy the fresh daily desserts such as cheesecakes and profiteroles, and beverages including Nespresso® coffees.

Various board games from chess to backgammon are available to stimulate the mind and accompany your coffee. Alternatively, for the more active there are Pool and Babyfoot tables on site.

Spacious seating is offered whether you choose to sit indoors, outdoors or in the serene garden setting.


We invite you to enjoy a taste of the good life. From the quality ingredients we use, to our innovative dishes and appreciation for wine and specialty drinks - we know you'll taste the difference. Our servers are attentive and friendly, and as a finishing touch, we've created an ambience that is warm and comfortable. From the moment you set foot in The Kora, you'll feel the difference.
