A haven from the hustle and bustle of the capital city. The perfect combination of good food, good service delivered up in the most delightful surroundings of tropical gardens. A little gem and a great find in Africa.

My favorite restaurant in Yaounde because of the open air feel, lovely flowers, secondary lighting, and fantastic food for a nice price. You could go here on a date or take a group of 12 and you will still have privacy and good food. The beer is cold, the steak is hot, and the limoncello is a wonderful surprise! The... More

Cafe de Yaounde is a great getaway from all the noise, fumes and hassle in the city streets. Very tasty food in a beautiful and relaxing surrounding. Staff was always nice and the after dinner limoncello will knock your socks off!

One could be in the heart of Yaounde eating the most exquisite lasagna with aubergine and gorgonzola? Unfortunately I had too little time and too few meals but next time I will eat them all at Cafe de Yaounde. Aside from the food the garden is gorgeous.m

Excellent decoration and the food is very good. Just take a little time to be ready, but if you have time it worth the waiting.

Nice gardens and bar. Good service. We had a very large group and was very accommodating . Steaks very good and well prepared. Same video plays daily with music that can be irritating more than pleasant. Smoking of other patrons can be a challenge.

The atmosphere is really a dream into african colonial times. The service is excellent, and the tables are laid properly with china and everything set. The wc is fine. The menu proposes some fine international/italian dishes. The quality of the italian settings is medium to high, bread is brought on table soon as in Italy. The fish and meat are... More
