BANTABA BAR & RESTAURANT
The restaurant at Balafon is called ‘Bantaba’ meaning ‘Meeting Place’ in the local Mandika language. With that in mind it was positioned in the best spot at the resort, close to the swimming pools and next to the beach, making it the perfect place to eat and drink. If you prefer just to relax and read a book, or watch beach life go by, then the sun terrace at Bantaba is an ideal location.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Breakfast at Balafon is served buffet style, with eggs cooked to your liking and limitless tea and coffee served to you while you enjoy the warm morning’s sea breeze. At lunch we offer a beach snack style menu and for dinner the menu is a la carte with options of both traditional and Continental cuisine. Various themed music , BBQs and dining nights take place throughout the week.
