“Great Food on the River Congo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

The location is amazing. You are virtually on the river and the lights of Kinshasa seem to flicker hypnotically across the river as you eat. The service is cheerful and prompt. The food is very good.

“Scenic by the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014 via mobile

Excellent location. Food of good quality. A bit expensive, but then again so are the rest of services in Republic of Congo. Friendly staff. If you are seated on the sofas facing the river, be a little patient until your waiter arrives. It is definitely worth a visit.

“very nice place to sit by the river although the food is not very special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

the food was fine - not really special but not bad. We were charged much to much for a bottle of wine but this could have been a genuine mistake and they did correct it.

“Sunday buffet is a winner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

As others have said, this is a restaurant where the highlight is location, location and location. Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised to run into their Sunday night buffet, quite expensive, but extensive. The highlight was the open BBQ that had lamb chops to die for. This is an ex-pat place, but it's nice to know there is one when you need it.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Restaurant on the riverside, interesting to watch the skyline of Kinshasa on the other side of the river over your favourite drink and chat with some nice traditional congolese dishes. Good simple food and interesting place to hang out with a view.
