I like to come here for lunch menu. It's nice to sit outside, the service is great and the food is tasty. Good food for 28000FC: plate and desert.

It's a very good restaurant but kind of expensive. It's on the site of a golf course and tennis courts. The waiters are very friendly. I recommend the frog legs, they make them very good there.

Tonight some friends and I attended an event that was catered by the Cercle Gourmand. It was all German food (the place is owned by Germans so it is authentic cuisine): pasta salad, sauerkraut, spaetzli, sausage, potatoes, goulash. Everything was tasty and the chefs were really friendly. My favorite was the cheesecake!

Was just there today for a tourism conference and had a buffet lunch which was local cuisine. The food was good if you like local cuisine. There are many expats and a tennis court. Not sure what other facilities are here as I did not look around much.

There were about 10 of us for dinner. It took a long time to get the waiter to take our order, which we could live, with but it took 1.5 hours for them to serve our dishes. We sat outside, the area was not busy, although there seemed to be a cocktail reception inside the restaurant in the more formal... More

Great place, actually I was invited by some friends members and had lunch at the members area of the Cercle Gourmand. The wine selection was impressive and the food was exquisite...if you are a real meat lover you should try the "filet americain" Wich is the belgian version of the amous steak tartare....a real treat!

Had a late dinner here with colleagues from work and was not disappointed from start to finish. Selected the Chef's menu which was nicely priced and I was very satisfied by the quality and flavor of the food. The tilapia had a parmesan crust with a bechamel sauce--incredible. The chocolate mousse dessert was phenomenal. Nice wine, great service. Highly recommend.

The setting itself is nice. It's easy to forget that you're in the middle of Kinshasa while you are there. We sat outside, which was set up nicely. The inside portion looked a bit too fancy for my liking but outside worked perfectly. The food was decent. For the prices I was expecting something more. Like the title says everything... More
