“Below average pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This place is ok if you want to sit outside, drink beer and watch football. However, don't make an effort to come here for the pizza. Too thick, too much cheese, not enough tomato sauce and lots and lots of greasy oil on top of it. Not tried the other food yet but pizza is not really worth repeating. They do deliver, so if you want their pizza they can bring it to you...that's if you want their pizza.

“Au feu de bois”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I discovered that place with a friend and loved it. The crowd was fun and busy watching a football match on the big screens. The finger food was very good and the brochette is to die for. A satisfying experience

“Delicious pizza!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

They serve very delicious pizza. My favourite is the O'Poeta Special. It takes a little bit of time to get your pizza ready so take that into account. I also took one time their delivery service at home, less than 30 minutes and the pizzas were warm. I strongly recommend this pizzeria. Even here in downtown Montreal it is really hard to find such a tastefull pizza.

“Fantastic Pizza in Kinshasa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

While working for MONUC I had the opportunity to get to O'Poeta a few times. By far my favorite place in Kinshasa. The food doesn't come out the quickest so you gotta be set on a "relaxing" dinner and outing. Gives you lots of time to sip on Tembo and enjoy being somewhere nice. Tembo by far is the best price to beer ratio and probably the best tasting beer in DRC. Some of the others have a formaldehyde as a preservative. Tembo does not :) The pizza is by far the best choice coming out fresh and always amazing from the stone bake oven. I would recommend this to anyone staying in Kinshasa. Also Gregs Bar right behind O'Poeta is a great place for an after beer and watch some football.
