This restaurant claims to the best French eatery in the capital of Congo. It was not bad, when I visited but the service was slow and it felt like I had to thank them that they were willing to serve me. Still, it was a very good spot with excellent food, serving surprising dishes, like foie gras. Not surprising for... More

This was discovered only after getting half-way through the meat. We asked for the chef to come and see for himself. The French owner/chef agreed with the meat was... More

I went here a couple of times and we always eat the fondue bourgignon, tender meat, fresh oil and a descent salad is always the case. You should try it! Very nice restaurant in Brazzaville area!

The place would make you feel more in Paris than in Brazzaville. It serves very good food and the service is excellent. The ambience is good and the place is very conviniently located. The prices are on the higher side but it is totally wort it.

Most guest stick to the small patio which lacks atmosphere except the menu which is designed as a newspaper. They serve mostly imported products like sole, saumon, canard and the sole which I tried was not very tasty probably cos it came frozen to Brazza. The same with the salmon with curry sauce which my friend tried. You can go... More

The atmosphere is not the best one in Brazzaville, but the food quality of the restaurant is one of the best in town. It is not too expensive and it is served very quickly (which is nice for Congo). a very good address for lunch!
