We loved La Voila Rouge!! My husband and I came here four different times during our honeymoon in Gabon. I especially loved the lentil salad and the langoustes, and my vegetarian husband was very satisfied (although if he could wish upon a star, he would...add one vegetarian pasta to the menu — all of the current pasta options had fish or seafood). Overall, the food was delicious and thoughtfully prepared, the ambience was perfect, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. The owner even offered us a free round of drinks to celebrate the last night of our honeymoon! If you’re in Libreville, don’t miss this place.More

Wow! What great food and service! We had a table on the beach along with an attentive waiter. We were welcomed by who I assume were the owners when we arrived and a huge au revior when we left. Food was great. Drinks were cold....Was a little pricy for a local beach front place but knowing they are near the major hotels they can charge that and people will pay. I would go back in a heart beat.More

Amazing atmosphere, great setting, outstanding customer service. Across the street from the Radisson, access to the beach, perfect place for business meals and for fun.

Went three times to this restaurant with a nice view on the ocean. Stayed two times inside and both service and quality of the food were very good. On the third evening the owner forced me to dinner outside as I was alone. It took...more than 30 minutes before the waiter took my order and another 40 minutes to serve my dish that was cold on arrival.More

Thank you for your comment and for choosing our restaurant. I can say that our place is one of the less expensive in the city of Libreville. I agree with you, Libreville is one of the most expensive city in Africa. Please Check other comment...More

Easy going place during the day for a cold one. Haven't found a better by the beach place yet. Some evenings with live music are fantastic. With or without entertainment, the place is a great for a night out and dinner. The more often you...go the better it gets as waiters and patron know what you came for and making it easy for you.More

Beers are cold! Food prices are reasonable for the quality. Great place to chill at the end of the workday or the weekend. Surprisingly no mosquitoes when I was there, probably due to the wind. Very popular with expats.

Ever since my husband and I moved to Libreville for a month ago, we visit La Voile Rouge on a weekly basis, sometimes biweekly. The ambiance is super friendly and the food is delicious. We enjoy coming here for a drink and friendly chat at...the bar during the week or a drink by the beach with our toes in the sand. The prices are quite reasonable in comparison to Libreville and the portions are more than adequate. La Voile Rouge is definitely a place to visit if you're ever in Gabon and and definitely a regular place to be if you're in Libreville for a longer duration. Shout out to Curtis and Jessica who always make us feel like we're home and help us improve our French :).More

Nice casual restaurant bar on the beach with a touch of African art... Atmosphere is nice... service is good; there are many expats that hang out here... Drinks were not bad but food was terrible in my opinion... Toilets are not clean and there was...no soap or tissues... there are indoor and outdoor seating areas, it's always nice to have a drink on the beach with friends and family... recommend it for hanging out rather than diningMore

Good quality of food with reasonable price. Grilled lobster is recommended. Good ambiance on the beach. If you want to have dinner on the beach side it's better to come at night since during the day you will see the garbage of plastic bottles on...the beach in front. Saturday night is Jazz night and it's recommend !!More

I loved this place. The service was really good and although it looks like a casual beach bar the food is excellent. The house foie gras is a must have. The grilled fish of the day is also delicious. Everything we ate was really good...and the house wine is also good - not the terrible box wine you get in a lot of places. I will go back many more times when I visit again.More
