  • Lots of nice pieces and the owner is very nice and knowledgeable.
  • It was a nice experience
  • This place is a high end oasis in Nouakchott. Look for the blue doors. On my initial visit, a nice young local man showed me around the property and let me know there is a Saturday "farmers market." I returned on Saturday and found some really fresh produce AND I treated myself to lemon tarts and mini-quiches. Nothing was cheap, but everything was delicious! I also saw that people were buying coffee and drinking it at tables in the courtyard. I also treated myself to some silver earrings and a nifty keychain.
  • Curated arts and craft work from Mauritania and around Africa, this gallery explodes with vibrant colored clothing and accessories, intricate designed jewelry, and bold interior design statement pieces. The gallery also has artist studio spaces and workshops where some of the beautiful work is created. Other pieces are consigned or procured from artists across the continent. If you are looking to take home an artistic piece of Africa, stop in to see the collection and enjoy the peaceful courtyard at Galerie Zeinart.
