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.

If you want to relax, enjoy some good food (at an expensive rate for the local economy) with some good music (cabaret starts at 10pm), then Yao Ba is the right spot for you. Located in the city centre with professional staff, don't miss the...More

Went with colleagues in one evening. Service is very good. Asked for seafood and was well served. Liked the ambiance as well, with the disco right below.

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

Live music with loads of ole zouk, Makossa was reminiscent of my youthful days in Kmer. Bartender could take a mixologist class but the ambience and lively crowd was well appreciated.

Description
Listed URL is a local restaurant review, not the restaurant itself. Located in the upscale district of Bastos. This is the most upscale non-hotel restaurant and bar in Yaounde--actually the only one of its type in the city. we just discovered it and had a great meal there. It is pricey, particularly the cocktails. This needs to be listed particularly if local American embassy diplomats have just found this place after 15 months on the scene. By the way, geocoords used as the address because neither Yaounde nor Douala have any street signs. For Cameroon, its best to give a geocoord, go to google maps, print the map and navigate as best one can. I'd prefer street signs and addresses, but they have no meaning here and I'm just a temporary--albeit long-term--guest. If you need more location info, email me. This place should be on trip advisor if only because there are so few nice places to go out at night in Yaounde in decent neighborhoods. Bastos is one of the most upscale--its a diplomatic area.
