I've always had fairly good experiences at Bertoua and Im always fascinated by how the lunch time vibe and dinner time vibe is so different. It's usually buzzing on Friday evenings and quieter during the day. The food and drinks available have never disappointed!

A group of 37 of us - visiting from Scotland - had Friday night dinner. The experience from start to finish was one of the worst I've ever experienced. We arrived at 745 and, by 9 pm, some of us had yet to receive our starters. I didn't get my main course till 10 pm. The background music was too... More

The service and attention from staff is on point. The food was tasty and it had character. The environment was also very welcoming and vibe was good. A definite yes, yes since my last visit.

With excellent service and a perfect setting for couples and even friends to get together, Bertoua offers a fine dining experience with an urban edge. They have one of the best prepared pork bellys I have had in a while. They also have other exciting mains and a wide variety of platters to choose from to share. Best birthday dinner... More

I loved being at this restaurant. The food and cocktails were amazing. The service was impeccable. With the mood set I didn't even realise the time flying past. I would recommend it for anyone looking to have a good time in Durbz.

Went on a Monday, although it was a public holiday, no breakfast was serviced. So we had a very nice creamy cappuccino and left.

Great food and wonderful service in a trendy atmosphere. Our waiter Terrance was outstanding and able to tell us a bit about the city while he served us. We enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time only to find that the place was packed. Apparently this is the place to see and be seen while in... More

A visit to Bertoua made for a great evening. The restaurant is very classy with the space divided into two: the formal dining area and the lounge for a more relaxed dining and drinking experience. Our waiter was great- always there when we needed her but now hovering. The food was spot on. We had a platter to share between... More

If you are in a rush and hope to get a waiter as you come in, take your order and do everything with a sense of urgency, look somewhere else. Of all the times I have been to Bertuoa, you wait for a waiter meanwhile they are all standing at the door probably waiting for you to call them, when... More
