If you've been to Cameroon, you know that finding a restaurant with good food and great service is almost impossible. Cafe Yaounde however, fits that bill. Walking from the street to the restaurant may be a bit difficult for those with mobility issues, as the walkway is a bit steep, albeit beautifully bordered by many tropical plants. The food is...

I had delicious shrimp in a spicy tomate sauce with a side of green beans. The mainly Italian menu boasted freshly made pasta. Unfortunately, there was a man singing loudy and poorly throughout the entire meal, which very much detered from the ambience. Otherwise, great setting, in a garden with (possibly too many) sculptures and masks scattered about. A beautiful... More

Great pasta and ice creams. Nice romantic atmosphere in this open air restaurant. Perfect for a quite night out. One of the best international restaurant of Yoaunde.

expensive but gorgeous and with a fantastic menu - totally worth it try sitting in the garden in the afternoon and have a quiet lunch enjoying a moment of quiet away form the noisy and busy streets. Fish dishes are really good, portions are overall very generous and the service friendly and quick

I was quite frankly really disappointed. I thought it was quite expensive and the portions very small and slow service.

If i had to eat at only one restaurant in Yaounde, it would be Cafe Yaounde. Every plate is great and you cant beat the pasta. I lived in italy for a year and they do a good job of bringing it to Cameroon. Plus the setting in the garden and open air terasse is superb. Service is usually wonderful,... More

I've been here several times in the recent past, and the food has never let me down. I recommend in particular the gnocchi Gorgonzola and the raspberry panna cotta -- some of the best I've ever had! The setting of the restaurant is also quite nice -- tables nestled in-between lush palms and fragrant flowers (the decor, though, is a... More

One of the most renown restaurant in the city in the community of expats! The Italian pasta are very good and tasteful. Prices are OK ...But be aware that you need to come early in high peak days (Wednesday and Saturday to have a good place!

No one can ignore the Café de Yaounde. It's one of the - rare - places in town where you inevitably end up in during your stay. The Italian food is of lasting quality, the service is friendly and rather quick - if you don't decide to pay it a visit on a Friday or Saturday night turning up later... More
