oasis of calm, not sure about the music dvd's

went here twice on a visit to Yaounde - very tranquil surroundings and a nice garden setting. Excellent grilled capitaine fish, which I went back for on the second visit, but wasn't available. Italian influenced menu, lots of pasta dishes and Italian wines. Recommended

One of the nicer restaurants in Yaounde. Great decor. Prices pretty typical for Yaounde restaurants (most dishes are around 5-6000 cfa, ~$10, @575 exchange rate). I had the fish (capitain/perch) in a lemon sauce and it was very nice. If you don't want to eat up in the main dining room there are many other secluded tables and also down... More

Good food at somewhat reasonable price with a very pleasant ambiance! Menu had great variety, and food was very good. Lots of pasta choices and the pasta was fresh; my companion's Steak au Poivre was excellent! Setting is outside, in dense shrubbery, but with full roof and half walls so all the romance of outdoor eating but dry and comfortable.... More

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
