Rather agressive people as soon as you arrive on the restaurant parking. No price at entrance, just discuss the price if you want. The shrimps can start from 50 usd to 10 usd....

The shrimps here are sooo good and extra spicy. They are extremely fresh too. But very expensive and the wait time is long..

The newly renovated restaurant is a nice location close to the Lobe Waterfalls. Their shrimp is below average, poorly seasoned and little in quantity. Prices tend to much to high when compered to other local places.

We were just unlucky.. the day we went there the skies opened up and torrential rain came down.. but the place is worth the visit, not expensive for our standards, but pretty pricey for African income. Food was very local, which is good, service was...a bit dodgy and as we chose to sit outside (covered area) the roof had leaks so we had to keep moving tables LOL good thing we were the only ones there, there was another party but they left shortly after we arrived. Worth the visit nevertheless.. maybe next time we go wont be raining so much..More

The restaurant was really good. You could eat the traditional crevette from Kribi, made traditionally. It was economic and such a nice spot to spend the day beaching and watching the watefalls

Recently visited this restaurant on the beachfront at Chutes de la Lobe. To update there is now a good road down to the Chutes accessible by any vehicle. This a simple beach hut with two levels so everyone gets a sea view. There were plates,...knives and forks and glasses. They can make fish or shrimp to order and the prices were reasonable and you can haggle. Ask for Thomas and ask to see the fish/shrimp before it's cooked so you are happy. The food was well cooked and seasoned and we liked it so much we went back in the evening by prior booking and had a private sitting.liked itMore

I'm not sure whether this title refers to the kind of collectivity which subsists next to the Chutes de Lobé: here you negotiate with the numerous vendors around a central 'restaurant' who will sell you various sizes of dishes of the local 'shrimp'. (These freshwater...clawed 'shrimps'are caught in basket traps in the Lobé. Of course Cameroon got it's name from Cameroenes, the shrimps found in abundance in its estuarial waters). You cannot visit Kribi without eating these, cooked in Kribi style, together with fried ripe plantain, Breadfruit chips (yum, may need to order in advance) or whatever else you want. It's not cheap (not much is in Cameroon), but it's good. You will probably be offered the opportunity to eat by any number of individual's who will entertain you at the innumerable seaside and other 'restaurants' which open to order. We spent a couple of fun evenings with 'HosannaLove', a charming Rastaman who lives on the beach round the corner from the Hotel Ilomba, near the new Marilen Lodge (see my other reviews). His flower garden and orchards surround and invade his 'restaurant' and camping ground, while the ant lions and beach crabs fascinate, the weaver birds weave and the sounds of the sea and birds add to the ambience. HosannaLove can light a bonfire as dark falls to chase away evil spirits (and mosquitoes), and various of his Batanga folk might drum for you. The little ones might join you to sing around the campfire!More

You will start by the fake tour guides harassing you the second you step out of your car until you seat in the restaurant. Calling this place a restaurant is quite a large and big compliment for this place, as they only do shrimps, one...way. No toilets, No fork and knife, no glasses offered. ..well that was part of the feeling considering the beauty of the nature around you. Right next to the chute de la lobe however no direct views. What was very annoying is to see that the other tables with local Cameroonian guests got the largest shrimps and ours were very tiny. ..this is something I don't like....I assume I will be paying more as I'm not from here and that's how it works in this country...but paying more to get less...in order for others to get more...no.way. Never again and please make sure you ask how much it will cost you as I paid more in this place than I did at the marina and Tara plage. ..24.000xaf for a platter of shrimps, 1 water and 1 beer.More

A very nice place to have traditionnal grilled fish and reknoned crevettes de la Lobé, speciality of Kribi with a very cold beer. While you wait for your food you can get a boat trip to appreciate the waterfall. Very nice place.
