Great italian food

Excellent choice of food, italian inspired but no pizza. Great setting (terrace overlooking the garden). Chocolate mouse is recommended.

Lovely restaurant amid a secluded garden, beautiful greenery. Food is good, priced fairly, and they definitely know how to fill up a glass of wine (to the brim!). Service is excellent as well.

Over a period of a month I had dinner or lunch at several restaurants in Yaoundé while there on business, with the Café de Yaoundé being a late discovery. I liked it well enough to go back once more, which I can't say for some other places. On my two visits the food was reliably good both times; nothing spectacular,... More

Your regular menu that you find at most restaurants in Yaoundé. Nothing spectacular about the food. Meals are generous in size. Restaurant offers meats, pasta and fish (Capitaine with different toppings from plain grilled to meuniere). All in all good dishes. Service is extremely slow. Expect long waits for everything, from starters to getting the bill.

Nice restaurant, friendly people all over,good food. Only problem is after you order,you have to wait half and hour or more before you will be served. So if your in a hurry, don't go there. Also don't go there with a 10000cfa in you wallet you will be embarrassed. Unfortunately I can't find a photo of me at cafe de... More

I love going to Café de Yaoundé and I always wonder why. It is not really for the food, which is ok but meh. I think I know what make this place so special: it is its garden and all the statues spread here and there throughout, the hundred of masks, the tiny stairs, the paintings on the walls.... it...

Went to this restaurant based on previous reviews listed here. Nice garden setting, which we couldn't fully enjoy due to the thunderstorms that night, resulting in tarps being pulled down around the dining area. Very charming, yet the food was just averge.

i've only ever eaten pasta. the sauces were good, included some more unusual combinations such as ginger and tomatoes or balsamico and cream. but, helas!, the pasta was always two minutes overcooked. other than that, the decor is colorful and fans of andre rieux will highly welcome the music dvd's for shortening the loooong wait for service. all others could...
