Top Local Tips for Cotonou

O'Grill for pleasant atmosphere, very reasonable grilled meals O'Grill (yes, its real name) offers a pleasant, fan-cooled environment and limited menus of simple grilled fish and chicken as well as beef and pork. Very reasonable prices. (A Flag beer costs 400 CFA vs. 1,700 at hotels.) Be sure to ask for "jus" when you order rice. It's a tomato/onion sauce - spicy here - that reminds of Creole dishes from New Orleans. A sink on the outside patio is available for hand washing. Next to the restaurant, a gentleman sells the ubiquitous wood carvings as well as some really fine old masks and fetishes. More welcoming that the artisanal centre. Ask him to tell you the stories of the old pieces.

Best Dining in West Africa?! Cotonou is full of good places to eat and drink. Try one of the top end French restaurants or sit ocean-side at a German bier garten.

Cotonou Airport arrivals Public health officials are meticulous in ensuring that all travellers have proof of Yellow Fever vaccination. Those without are required to be vacinated on-site (next to arrivals area, clean facility) for 5000F CFA. Major hotels offer shuttle service in vans (Novotel/Ibis and Marina) but private car owners offer taxi services and most are friendly and professional - provided you speak French, you can engage a driver and judge his (virtually all are men) integrity. Dont hesitate to ask a fellow (local) arrivingl passenger to check out a driver for you: one béninois will certainly be honest in judging another! There is no ATM at the airport, but small EUR bills can always be exchanged at the official rate of 655F = 1EUR and accepted by taxi drivers.
