Uninspiring on arrival off the main sea front road and vey daily missed. But don’t I tend to judge a kitchen by simple things . Steak and seafood. Simple but complex, this restaurant deals with this with ease and produces a product that is very...good. I had tartare and tenderloin and both were superb. Service excellent, produce excellent, wine list excellent and bonus a vast selection of whiskies in 5he bar downstairs. It matey well have been overtaken by bars in new districts. But even this wants you to shout out NO this is not rightMore

Went there for the The Workshop Models Libreville. And the organizers took us there. As soon as we entered the place, I was like wow!!!!!! I must admit that I wasn’t expected such quality in Gabon. But I can assure you, that there is! The...girl who greeted us, was so beautiful and kind. They put us in a private room. So private, that they closed the door behind them every time they would come in or out. It felt like having guests and a butler at home. Wanna talk about the food and the food presentation? TO DIE FOR! I honestly wanted to eat every dishes that my colleagues ordered. Soooooo good and well presented that I didn’t feel like talking to them anymore, as I was having a private conversation with my food. 😂😂 I also loved the wine selection. They have a very well furnished wine list. Le Lokua? A place to go absolutely!!!!!!! À bientôt 👋🏾 SteeveMore

Le lokua is located in the Glass section of Libreville, near our hotel. It is adjacent to a bar and you climb the stairs to enter the restaurant, which is behind a door that does not look right. It is. Walk right in! The room...is beautiful, all wood and linen napkins. The menu and service are French. We had a goat cheese salad, crab ravioli soup sole with butter sauce and veal. All were delicious although the fish was so crisp I wondered if it had been overcooked or that was the recipe. I liked it anyway. The wine was overpriced and perhaps we ordered wrong. Dessert was fruit and a panna cotta, both delicious. It's expensive but so is everything in Libreville, the world's 17th most expensive city. We really enjoyed Le Lokua.More

Very nice place whether you're just looking for a drink at night in a nice bar or for a quite sophisticated lunch or diner. Seafood is - to my mind - one of the the best in Libreville. Price is OK when you consider the...quality of the meal.More

Very good enviroment. Reasonable food. Good impression when you enter the place, good staff, very nice bar. The menu as some reasonable choices and tries to provide good choices, but probably this should be the point were it has to be improved. The price is...a bit overrated, but excessivly expensive.More

I went with my colleague of mine. He did the translation to English. Entree to Main course was extremely good.Would love to go again.The starter was actually so good and kind of opened up the taste buds.Never had such a good starter before. Would recommend...anyone for this place. I will be going for sure again to this place. This is a fine dining place and please take reservations. The restaurant is in the first floor and we didn't bother enter the Bar area. It was closed smoking and kind of suffocating for me.More

We decided to have diner with some friends in Lokua and were amazed by the quality of service and the organization of the personnel. Food was very good, though cookers were a bit long to prepare the meal. But overall an excellent performance, including the...bar on ground floor where a band is playing live music ...More

Perfect service, food and drink. The food is French Gabonese with a great seafood section. The restaurant is modern, clean and great for a date or business dinner. We were dressed very casually, but most of the crowd were well turned out.

They brought her meal well before us, which was perfect! will go back again for sure! Ladies night with karaoke! PS - Do dress up a little bit!More

Stunning restaurant managed by a young lady from Gabon, that traveled the world. Staff are friendly and polite. Food is fantastic! They have events and live bands during the week. The perfect place to find a bit of home away from home.
