This place is astounding and the quality is always consistant. Staff are lovely and the Owner overseas every dish as well as providing Michel Rieu as light music. The complimentary snacks are delicious as is the bread basket but the masterpiece is the Past served directly from the pan at your table. Very reasonable pricing and the Lemonchello and Orangechello... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Cameroon. Since our first meal some 3 years ago, the owner, chef and wait staff have made this our favourite place in Yaounde. We thoroughly enjoyed our very last meal in Cameroon, although after 3 years we were extremely sad to leave the meticulously manicured surroundings of our refuge ;-(

At a time when competition was lacking CdY was the top place in town. Today , with growing contenders it's still a solid bet. Quality, service, atmosphere, Cafe has it all. Remember where you are, you won't be disappointed !

I've been there several times during my last visit to Yaounde. Excellent food, very good wine selection, lovely staff and eclectic ambiance. The food is prepared with great attention. My favorite is the medley of smoked fish. Each visit was extremely enjoyable.

Relaxed and charming open air restaurant. Great food with an Italian touch (try the tagliatelle with gambas), good wines and very attentive and professional staff.

It is set in a beautiful garden and if you go at lunchtime, you will certainly see a few incredible multi-color birds, The food is also very good - we had a plate of fricassée of fresh gambas with pasta (also fresh and perfectly cooked - al...

Quite a nice setting in a garden. Even inside it is open and still feels like you are in the garden. Service ok - could have been faster. I had the steak which was tasty. As one of the few decent restaurants in Yaounde, am sure I will be back.

I visited cafe de yaounde on 17 May 2016. It is very nicely decorated restaurant with lot of greenery. However the food is average. We have few vegetarian salads, pasta and chocolate cake for dinner.

Eating there is always a great experience. Tasteful local and italian food in a superb decor, luxurious garden full of trees and flowers, with great service. A must when you are in Yaounde.

I really liked this restaurant, set in very pretty gardens away from the main road. A bit tricky to find but well worth it. Pretty much Italian food throughout, with some good African twists - eg I had tagliatelle with ginger which was delicious, sort of like pasta pomodoro but with an added warm fragrant sweetness. And the pasta was... More
