Lots of imported produce, some western servers, and most important of all a place where there are no food poisoning concerns.

Yes, that's it. This place is the best. Which is pretty much like saying..."Oh man! Let's go to Detroit and stay at the best hotel! (48 hours later) Man! This hotel is kind of weird...but it is the most expensive in Detroit? Yes. You are paying a ton of money for a relatively (to the other three hotels) solid stay.... More

I think I may have forgotten to visit the buffet (which looked delectable) but I certainly drank my weight in champagne. Attentive and exquisite service from Ezequiel and Monsieur Bertrand. This is a very classy joint, loved every second of it. The pool was nice too, entry is included in the price of the Sunday buffet.

This is a safe bet in Ndjamena. We went there every day for 2 weeks. Positive points: - Buffet with a large choice of good food. - Welcoming staff. Negative point: - A bit far from the city (15-20 minutes drive) - Several instances of sparkling water having no gas.

Enjoy the Harira soup! Also the breakfast was very nice with lots of choices. It is worth getting up early!

The eating area was really welcoming and spacious. The food was buffet, nice choices to chose from and great taste. But too expensive I think

It is a nice space and the menu is interesting. However, what is described on the menu is not what arrives at the table. They claim to offer a number of "African" dishes but none of it holds up to what one could find in a small restaurant on the street at one tenth of the price.
