Le Biniou

Reviewed By benbatouta - Boston, Massachusetts

The menu is quite varied with good starters, fish, meats, etc. The avocado shrimp gratins is a good starter and quite filling. There is several variations on the Capitan Fish and they are all good. The pasta dishes are generous in size and tasty. All in all, a very pleasant place for lunch or dinner ( I have done both). Lunch is usually a buffet. However, the service is quite slow, similar to many other places in Yaoundé! Nothing new so better get used to slow service.

Cafe de Yaounde

Reviewed By Ronald_jelle - The Hague, The Netherlands

Today we went to Cafe Yaounde for lunch and well up to now for me this is the nicest restaurant/ cafe that I have seen in Yaounde. The garden is lovely and also the restaurant itself is cosy. The walls are filled with art , the ventilators on the ceiling keep it nice and cool (not too cool), it really has a nice vibe....
The service was a bit slow, perhaps because people like to sit here for a long time or because the people will come anyway?.
The food was fine, the stake could have been better, but I was happy with my lasagna!!.
We liked the garden and the restaurant so much that we will be back here and I do recommend people that come to Yaoude to give it a try, I don't think you'll find something much nicer than this.

L'Italien Piccola Venezia

Reviewed By Peter C - Alicante, Spain

I went here with four friends on a Saturday evening. In the past, I have been here a couple of times at lunchtime and found the service too slow for a business lunch.
However, this time, the service was good - not too quick not too slow - and very friendly. All the waiting staff are very professional and the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
The food was varied and good. Everyone around the table really enjoyed their meal. There was also a short but good wine list with a heavy emphasis on good value and good quality Italian wines, a nice change from the standard five or six French wines that one tends to see in every other restaurant in Douala!
The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite lively, and all the other tables seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. In terms of value, this is probably one of the better value restaurants among the higher end of Douala's establishments.
All in all, a very good evening, good fun and good value.

La Salsa

Reviewed By Sarisse - Basel, Switzerland

Went there with colleagues for dinner. Service is efficient with old waiters knowing their job. Tried the tajine recommended by the waiter and it was pretty tasty. Wine is good and overall ambiance is ok for a dinner with colleagues or friends. You can try it.

Mediterranee Restaurant

Reviewed By Stuball1 - Ottawa, Canada

It has been two years since I was at this property last, and I was pleased to note that nothing had really changed, The restaurant is, first and foremost, spotless. The menu, I think never really changes although on certain days there are additions. The food is well presented and flavorful , the prices are entirely reasonable, and this may account why it remains so popular, especially among expats

la Fourchette

Reviewed By Nick G - London, United Kingdom

I have eaten there twice last week
Lunch 2 persons excellent
Dinner 9 persons average at best
The best lounge for cocktails in Douala
Restaurant wonderful ambience and minimalistic
Difference between a smal group and large group noticeable
They struggled to manage a larger group
I would return with a table of maximum 4
The manager needs to be more transparent and attentive in the restaurant and not hide in the bar
So much promise but I feel a little deflated by my most recent experience

Reviewed By Josina1982 - Brussels, Belgium

What a great find! Super cute restaurant with very attentive staff. Their Chili fries are to die for!! My colleague had an Indian main and apparently it was great. My pasta was good but I think they've got other dishes that are better. But overall definitely worth going to if you're looking for a nice place in Douala.

Saga Afrrica

Reviewed By Peggy L

Saga Africa lived up to its reputation. Centrally located, parking available. Courteous service (though a bit slow). The French bread was actually better than at some of the more expensive restaurants in Douala. I had some local dish while friends ordered the shrimp curry and steak - both excellent. You can order to go as well. The restaurant is partitioned into an air conditioned vs an "outdoor" room that had nice live music on a Friday night. Would for sure return given the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. Nice ambiance as well to catch up with friends.
