THE BANTABA INN:
Senegambia Hotel houses one of the best kept secrets of The Gambia ‚ The Bantaba Inn. Under a mantle of local trees, adequately and interestingly lit, but avoiding high-tech cleverness, one can take a seat on a patio, or in the local style open sided ‘huts’ which form two sides of this triangular construction.
The bar, which forms the third side of the triangle, serves ten selection of beer, including the exclusive Erdinger Weizen, which is a Bavarian Wheat Beer, and a real thirst quencher.
All the usual wines and spirits are also available. At very reasonable prices, The Bantaba offers a choice of six starters and eleven main courses, and a ‘daily special’. Open daily from 6 P.M. to midnight.
The Senegambia buffet takes a thematic approach to catering, featuring two weeks of succulent delights from a different country every day. Then there is barbecue night, African evening – and that is not the end of it.
Random table clothing reduces regimentation and uniformity and successfully avoids which seems to be present elsewhere. The buffet area is state of the art technique, Balmoral granite surfaces, refrigerated areas for starters and dessert, and action station cooking with the most modern equipment right in front of you.
For the ambiance and decor the decorator had a free run for his ideas and Senegambia’s buffet restaurant and terrace is a welcome change to the usual hotel restaurant routine. Open daily from 7 P.M. to 9 P.M.
Lunch is a meal which most people would rather forget if it was not for the nagging feel in the stomach.
The terrace at Senegambia is just the place for the small hunger. A selection of classic salads, Hamburgers, sandwiches, pizzas and ice-creams help you to get over your hunger and popular pricing will not hurt your portefeuille.
Decorator J.B.Barian has developed new ideas and has transformed the terrace which now gives a splendid view on pool activities.
