I was a little bit hesitant about taking a group of people out for a thank you dinner in Bangui. The last time I was in the city, I became quite ill after a restaurant meal. The Relais des Chasses was a pleasant surprise in every way. The owners welcomed our large group and even seated us in a private... More

This place is probably the best food you are going to get in Bangui (or in CAR for that matter) if you want something western. Have draft beer, reasonable wine. Food is french style cuisine plus pizzas and other exotic meats. All very tasty.

The food is excellent and the environment takes us out of the context and creates the mood for a lovely evening in the module of Africa. Of you do not know what to eat, let the owner be your guide, and enjoy the ride!

By far, this is the best restaurant in Bangui. Good old fashioned French cuisine, plus very decent pizzas, good ambience

This international restaurant - with a heavy French influence - is often considered one of the best in Bangui. I have generally received very good meals here, and on rare occasions have had food that I considered exceptionally good. The seating is outdoors, but well covered in case it rains. Service is friendly but slow. The owner often makes the... More

The guesthouse associated with the Relais des Chasses restaurant is very expensive. There is a refrigerator in the kitchen, however the generator is switched off at 1am and not switched back on again until 5am. This makes water pool at the bottom of the fridge and may lead to food spoilage. There is no airconditioning or ceiling fans operating while... More

I work for a humanitarian organization and was on mission in Bangui for a week. I ended up staying at the Relais des Chasses. In some ways it was amazing, friendly staff, incredible food (I was told it was included in the room rate, two meals a day). The rooms are basic, but reasonably clean and I felt safe there.... More

There are not many choices in Bangui, but this restaurant offers good food and a relaxing, convivial atmosphere. Although not everything on the menu is actually available, there is a broad choice for all tastes. The antelope stew was particularly good!!
