I went there because I was told of their very good live music. Other than that the food was ok I had a suggested dish, service was very good and quick, maybe because I was the only customer.

A great dinner spot and an excellent way to experience Yaounde by night. Talented singers and dancers treating guests to soul music and danceable African beats!

The live band is one of the best. The service is really good. Drinks are a little overpriced but I guess it's the price of the lovely environment. Great spot for hanging out with family and friends.

The place looks nice, chairs are not to be seated on for too long. The buffet was good especially the shrimps and beef were nice. The music was not extremely nice until later in the evening when a blues-singer took the stage.

I was here for a business dinner. The room is not very big but it is particular because faces the cabaret room downstairs. I ordered grilled fish which I thought was fresh and fine. Perhaps the serving size is a bit too small. The service...More

A very nice place to enjoy a nice dinner whether it is for business or pleasure. It is on the expensive side as compared to other places in Yaounde. The goat cheese salad is a nice way to start. They add few drops of honey...More
