It was a business diner that turned out to be almost family like. But don't misunderstand me, food wise, it was really professional. Asparagus perfect, and the coquille de saint jacques just like in Paris. The Pouilly-Fumé was absolutely marvellous, chilled. And nice cups. Details that count. The dessert came with the whiskies to close the deal. Well done Cercle... More

Came in on a Monday evening and it was very quiet. Sat outside as the weather was nice. Service was prompt (the place was empty). Had the steak with mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes. All was very tasty. My colleague ordered a brownie and it was like $15 and definitely not worth it. The decor inside of the restaurant was... More

On Business trip went there a couple of times last month and was never disappointed either inside or outside in the terrace. The food is very good, the Service is impecable and the setting fabolous. The Big river "shrimps" or the "Cosa" as they called them here are really very good with a garlic and parsley sauce. Good place to... More

The terrace is best although it's more expensive inside. They have real good value lunch menus with a main course and dessert at 20 USD mon-fri or mon-sat. With the lighting, it's a nice romantic setting during the evenings but beware of mosquitoes... Food's great - try the Bruschettas for starter and Cossas for Main!

Go there for a drink as the setting is nice but avoid the restaurant, it is an expensive trap, you have far better options in Kinshasa

The restaurant is according to me the most beautiful one in Kinshasa. Colonial style, one big room with nice tables and nice decoration. The food a la carte is very expensive but the menus are more reasonably priced and very good.The service and the quality of the food can change...a few times food was very good and another few times...

Situated within the Golf course and Tennis Club complex - this is a great option to escape the hustle and bustle of Kinshasa. Good food too!

We often come here. It is nice to have the option to choose between the terrace for more daily occasions and the indoor restaurant for special or business opportunities. The daily lunch menu on the terrace is great value for money and service is quick. Great place for kids.

Never seen such a personal and dedicated service. Great atmosphere, above all the Big Prawns are to die for. Highly recommend this place.
