Brilliant food and wine list, just like in Italy and nice atmosphere. You need a loaded wallet, but it's worth it.

One of the nice restaurant in kinshasa, RDC. Feel good and enjoyed the food alot. The service is also good. Not to costly but the tastey stuff you get it here. So it forces me to give 9/10 for it.

This is a restaurant that allows you to escape the daily grind of Kinshasa. The atmosphere is classy and comfortable. The menu has a wide variety of salads, seafoods, pizzas, pastas including gnocchi, meats and desserts. The calzones are excellent and very big, the salads fresh, the desserts delicious. The Carmelita crepes are one of our favorite desserts. The service... More

This is a very nice place with a very lively atmosphere. Although it was fully packed, the service was pretty good. Had the complete grilled fish and it was a real treat. I would say that the food is above average for Kinshasa. It is a bit costly but then the ambiance and the food kind of justify it. Would... More

Spent a few days in Kinshasa on business and was very pleasantly surprised to find this gem. Stunning food, good service and classy, fresh decor. Had the ravioli which was superb. One of the best restaurants i have been to in a long time. Will be back

Well, this is definitely one of the better restaurants in Kinshasa. Went there for the first time last month. Enjoyed the evening and the atmosphere. The food was above average for Kinshasa, albeit a bit pricey, but that is to be expected in Kinshasa. Would definitely go back.

This is definitely a top place to see and be seen. Good food as well. There is covered patio and a more formal dining room - but they are only separated by glass - so that everyone gets to see everyone. Very social place - and good cocktails!

I ate three evening there and every time the quality was on the same high level. The Capitain Siciliana was fantastic as well Straccetto Rucola. The Salade de Foie Gras was something to remember. A restaurant not to miss in Kinshasa. I think it was one of the best restaurants I visited in Africa. The service was excellent as well... More

Suitable for business dinners. International cuisine. Tried the Grilled Captain Fish and Pizza there and both were fine. Seating / open area was very nice. If you want a classy restaurant in Kinshasa, then this would be one of the options.

We went to this place on the last night before we were to fly back to India. This is like an oasis. Its superply done - very stylish. I am a vegetarian, so had limited choices. The pizzas were really nice. The service is typically slow but not inattentive. One of the better places in Kinshasa.
