Rue des Artisans, near to Grande Marche has jewellery, brass and wood carvings for which you can haggle with traders from Mali, Nigeria and Senegal. At the Village Artisanal on the Avenue de la Nouvelle Marche, local artisans make baskets, chairs and tables, carve statues and weave cloth, all at fixed prices.

A more up market choice is La Belle Epoque in Hotel Belle-Vue, Kodjoviakope. With cool white decor inside and a leafy courtyard outside, the menu is French inspired.
