Try the demi camembert

You are going to love it! sometimes it is not available but when it is, you just have to have it. Some other plates are good too, most of the people are expats and it is a little bit expensive, but not much options there in Bangui.

Food was ok , ambiance basic . But for Bangui its good so if youre there I would go there . The Patron is friendly and the place is obviously a favorite with the local French community .

Relais des Chasses serves some seriously delicious (if over-priced) food that can make you forget exactly where you are in the world. If you ate it in Paris or London, you might say it was very good. But because you're in Bangui, with so many challenges and shortages, the fact of a good red wine and duck confit becomes magnificent... More

I liked the setting, the food and the service. It was a nice oasis -- with a good wine list -- in a city that can try your patience.

A small piece of paradise run by an expat Frenchman with great cuisine. I highly recommend the andouillette and the lamb chops - brings the best of France to the CAR. S & B

Relais des Chasses is a nice little restaurant in Bangui, within walking distance of Hotel du Centre. The food was good, there was a band on Saturday night, and there is a nice shaded patio/courtyard area to sit and catch a breeze. I think they have rooms to rent also if you want to stay there.

Certainly Bangui's best-known and oldest functioning restaurant, Relais des Chasses is one of its best, ran by the French expatriate Freddy. The setting is nice and relaxed, with good decor in the interior, a covered terrace outside, and outdoor seating surrounded by greenery, in a really nice setting of wooden statues and French pétanque. Live music (at least one person... More
