What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

There is a VERY limited number of places to go. PERIOD. In two months you already know all of them. It is a very small city and not many options. - Sep 27, 2017
No fast food at all. Some very nice French restaurants with costs ranging from US$5 to $$$. - Aug 13, 2015
Yes, cost is moderate to high. - May 29, 2014
no Mc Donald but they have Al Donald which is risky to eat there, no KFC, no AMerican fastfood here. Expect to wait for a long time for food to come then you will be fine. Cost is expensive to eat in the nice restaurant. There are many good restaurants in Lome such as Greenfield, Sushi bar, Les nuit D'órient, Golden Beach etc. My favorite is Greenfield and Sushi bar. - Mar 27, 2011
