This place is permanently closed. This is rated as number one place on Trip Advisor. However, there is a Chinese cuisine 'Yes Club' right across this place. But Sea Club is definitely closed.

I did hear a rumour that this restaurant was due to close - but this does not appear to be the case. I am no longer in Pointe Noire - maybe someone can confirm if it is still open? I last ate there in December 2015 and it was as good as ever. I usually opt for the mixed seafood... More

The setting puts one in a holiday mood. Seafood is an absolute winner especially the crayfish. Friendly service. The food is always fresh and the restaurant always busy. Open for lunch and dinner. This one comes highly recommended and a superb dining experience.

Situated right on the Corniche, the view is beach & sea, the air is sea breeze and the food is seafood...not much more to say really. We had no reservation, but they found us a table and were very polite about it. The manager came over and greeted us, the staff were really friendly and knew the menu inside out.... More

Sea Club represents to me the very best dining in Pointe Noire. Sadly, every year the owners close for their vacation (selfish, I know!) In the past this has been for the month of August, but this year it was July AND August...it was almost like a prison sentence. Thankfully early in September came the news that us budding gastronomes... More

Excellent restaurant. The food is consistently good, the service is great, the owners are lovely. The location is good as well but it might get messy during the rainy season.

Well run fish restaurant. I had some delicious sashimi to start with. And a grilled langouste to follow. Very good. Service ok. Seems to be always busy.

this highly praised restaurant was a total disappointment. The service wasn't polite and the staff was discussing different matters in the background loudly which was very disturbing. I ordered a Nem de langouste as entree curious how it would be and it came a springroll with vinegar sauce. It hadn't nearly any taste except it was crispy and the vinegar... More

Having never had much seafood in my life I can honesty say in now hooked on Lobster!! The food is incredible!! Service is a bit slow but the quality of the food well makes up for this... Having worked in Congo for a year or so can't believe I had not been in and had only had takeout which was... More
