Decided to visit L'Odika for lunch while in Libreville based on the numerous good reviews across various platforms. The first thing that stands out is the ambience. Set in a lush tropical garden it a stark contrast to the street outside. The main structure of...the restaurant is open on all sides like a large verandah and the whole vibe of the place is very pleasant. It seemed quite busy on a sunday afternoon and we were lucky to get a seat at one of the edges looking out into the garden. Another nice thing is that they have menus available in English in addition to French. Although unfortunately none of the staff on duty spoke any English. Managed to convey to them that we were vegetarian because the menu did not have much vegetarian food on it and they were nice enough to conjure up veggie plates for us. Started off with some delicious lentil fritters and for the main course we had a cassava patty, okra in a spicyish gravy, yellow plantains and sauteed spinach. Some nice cold Régab to wash it down with on a hot day. For dessert, we had the creme brulee. They actually made a mistake on our bill and called us back after we stepped out to correct their error. It was nice of them because we would have been completely oblivious. The food was good if not really memorable. The stand outs were the lentil fritters and cassava patty. A nice place to visit when in Libreville.More

Well here is a nice restaurant held by a charming woman, the food is really nice and on some occasion she has some special dishes she is adding to the menu. Prices are fair and quality is very good a large amount of expats and...some locals are eating at this place that I can only recommend. It is like a big mezzanine all African wooden style. This shouldn’t be a disappointment at all to those trying this place.More

Decent place to eat, tends to get hot during day with just ceiling fans running. Service was good, papaya juice very refreshing. Ambience was great, very serene with greenery and quiet. Staff catered to my special vegetarian dietary requirement and offered local taste to my...plate. Special thanks to Chef. Overall good experience apart from it getting hot under slow running ceiling fan arrangement.More

Good food, friendly and attentive staff, comfortable location at Louis. A bit pricy but quality worth it. Piri piri dangerously hot. Enjoy!

Quaint restaurant with excellent seafood. We had a mix plate, crab that was delicious, some clams and fish carpaccio. All were appetizers, but big portions and fresh. Recommended for a nice dinner.

Enjoyed my meal. Lovely toned down restaurant... a bit laid back but really easy. Menu has a variety of choices for all categories of customers. Enjoyed the mean and not really pricy.

I tried some African beef specialty I can't say it was bad but personally was not my taste. But the grillez skewers were amazing! Thank you to clemencia for being a wonderful host in Spanish!!

I love the food. Takes a bit of time but worth the wait. I will always visit when in Libreville. Something else is amazing in the restaurant. You have to go there to find out

We popped in for a quick bite, while walking around in the town. This place is cheap and I especially loved the chicken sandwich.

Exellent place to relax, eat or just have a drink. I had the beefsteak with peper sauce and a ginger/bissap drink. But you can find a good choice of African dishes, fish and barbecues. The restaurant is located in a small wooden house which gives...the place a colonial atmosphere. It s all open, no windows no doors. Should count around 15000 fcfa for a meal + drink.More

It was actually the second time I was going there for lunch. Just delighted I could find my favourite fish in a restaurant in Libreville finally.

L'Odika was a delight. It's open but quiet, the service is pleasant but not speedy. I had a delicious salad with yam and chicken with nyemboué sauce and loved it. There are a large number of African, if not uniquely Gabonais dishes and tonight I...plan on having it with sauce L'Odika, which is a nut butter. The prices are lower than average for Libreville, which is nice. This place is in our guide book, so expect to see tourists there but Gabonais were there as well. Don't miss it!More

Cozy African decor and wonderful people. Ordered 5 dishes of which 2 were ok, 1 too dry and 2 very salty. Juices were very nice but not fresh. Don't go for a quick meal, waiting time is over one hour.

In the middle of Louis area, with plants all around and typically wooden place, while in other restaurants you find mainly bricks, I had a pleasant moment in that place. The servers were friendly, the food good, but with a bone...I broke my tooth...not a...good experience but it could happen everywhere.More
