Un hôtel haut de gamme qui occupe une place de choix dans le quartier des affaires du Plateau donnant sur la lagune Ebrié. La zone est très calme en dehors des heures de travail, mais il ya des restaurants et des bars juste en bas de la colline et vous pouvez rapidement rallier la plupart des parties de la ville. La terrasse de la piscine est un endroit idéal pour admirer la lagune et voir le boulevard juste en dessous qui ne manque pas d’animation.
One of the newest business hotels in the city, the Ivotel has a central location in Plateau. It's closer to shops and restaurants than many of the other business hotels, though Plateau still gets quiet outside of office hours.
A popular choice with business travellers, the Novotel is well located in the Plateau districts with close connections to the port, government buildings and company offices. Many of the rooms overlook a stretch of the lagoon and there tends to be a steady stream of businessmen and travellers staying here. The restaurant offers poor value for money, so if you have time, it's best heading out to places like Zone 4 or Cocody.
One of the very few business hotels not run by the Accor group, the Tiama is an up-market address with a central location close to the stadium.
On the waterfront of the Ebrie lagoon, the Cafe de Rome leisure complex includes a casino, a nightclub and the up-market Zen restaurant. The menu has French cuisine with an Asian touch thanks to the wok buffet.
The French-chain Hippopotamus is known for its tender steaks and burgers and the first of its kind in West Africa.
It may be called Abidjan cafe, but this is more of a French brasserie, conveniently located in the heart of the commercial district, Plateau, opposite the Rotonde gallery. A good destination for high quality tasty food either inside or on the terrace. Frequent wine-tastings and live football matches.
"Make yourself at home, sit comfortably, pass your order in all serenity and you will be served as you deserve...like a king. Welcome to the kingdom of African cuisine."
So reads the menu of the Combattant. Owned by Sirel, which also runs the similar 331 in Cocody, the Maison du Combattant has been around for more than fifteen years, and is one of the highlights of the Plateau district. Between midday and two o'clock it's difficult to find a place between the diplomats, high-ranking civil servants, journalists and officials from the corporate headquarters and government ministries.
The architecture and atmosphere is 1930, with a huge private terrace and high ceilings decorated with swirling fans, making this high-end maquis well worth a visit. If the popularity of the food can sometimes slow down the service, this is still a major attraction for those seeking a lunchtime bite.
The key attraction is above all the selection of Ivorian dishes, ranging from the Ivorian sauces (palm grain, leaf, djoumblé, clair, pistachio, gouagouassou), grilled meats and fish (chicken, agouti, rabbit, carpe, catfish, sole and sea bream), kebabs and other specialities (chicken yassa, guinea fouwl, snail, crayfish, mutton, kedjenou), and the daily specials.
It's difficult to know where to start! There are also salads and a snack section in the menu for those not wanting a full meal.
We love the colonial architecture, and the simple, generous and high-quality nature of the food.
