Sea food French Gastronomie
The menu reads like a traditional french cookbook contents page- all the old favourites. The service and staff knowledge is probably the best in Kinshasa. If anything, it's probably a bit overpriced. A pity there's no outdoor seating- the weather in Kinshasa makes dining outdoors my preference.

Tonight some friends and I attended an event that was catered by the Cercle Gourmand. It was all German food (the place is owned by Germans so it is authentic cuisine): pasta salad, sauerkraut, spaetzli, sausage, potatoes, goulash. Everything was tasty and the chefs were really friendly. My favorite was the cheesecake!

I have been going to this place for almost like 19 years now. This place place portrays the classic essence of Chinese culture. The food over here is simply magnificent. However, sometimes the service over here can be a bit slow on some busy weekends. The chilli beef with rice is a must try over here. The view from the place is quite good and it is a very good place to come with family and friends.

Un restaurant bar tres chic ou les gens continuent a se regrouper en quete de haute cuisine, de cocktails exotiques, et de differentes specialites portugaise et internationales. Gaby a concu une carte renouvelee regulierement, ou sont mis a l'honneur, quelques terroirs selectionnes pour leurs produits exclusifs et travailles de facon saisonniere.. Des l'entree, Gabi vous recoit avec sourire et professionnalisme.
I ate at this restaurant a number of times during more than one visit to Kinshasa. I did not do so out of personal choice; I was constantly taken there as if someone were doing me a favour. While Gaby is friendly, the food itself is just average. I wish I could say something nicer than that but I cannot think of anything. I sometimes dreaded it when I knew people were planning on doing me "a favour" by taking me there.

A Kinshasa institution beloved by locals and expats for excellent rotisserie chicken.
Went here on a rainy night so we sat inside. The place was welcoming and definitely had a nice feel to it. We ordered the chicken (of course) with chips and vegetables. Get the whole chicken if 2 people there as it is cheaper than buying 2 1/2 chickens. It is slow so be prepared to wait. Love the way they gave us hot water to wash our hands before eating. That is a nice touch. (You wash your hands African style in the restaurant). The only thing I would say I was disappointed in was the green vegetables which they told me was their version of Lenga Lenga and it looked nothing like Lenga Lenga as I know it.

Went here with a large group from work. The location (at night) not the best, a dingy side street but inside very beautiful and tastefully decorated. Lots of staff, but they were watching mostly football on TV. Staff was friendly but also quite clueless. However the food and wine was delicious, truly good and considering Kinshasa prices very fairly priced. One of the best places in town, foodwise.

I went twice to O'Poeta so far, once at noon for a pizza and the second time at night, for my birthday party. The first time, I was with my best friend and the second time with eight other friends. I must say that I prefer the ambiance at night. There are mosquitoes, because the restaurant is mainly outdoors, but the lights are great. There are also many plants and a slightly African décor that matches well with a cooler temperature and the coziness that brings the night. For the mosquito issue, just tell a waiter or a waitress: they will provide mosquito coils. The staff is friendly. Even if they don't seem to understand what you want, they will do whatever they can to satisfy you. I remember the first time I went I asked a pizza without mozzarella. I repeated it twice, to be sure the waitress had understood. She went away without saying anything. I was worried because I know that at the Limoncello for example they bother you for half an hour and in the end tell you that it can't be done. "A pizza without mozzarella? Why not a cup of coffee without cup?" But that's not the mindset of O'Poeta. They brought me a delicious sea food pizza without any trace of cheese. And the second time, for my birthday, it was just perfect, the food, the service, the ambiance,... everything was good.

Well, I will say the food is relatively cheap, and service fast. But the Shwarmas were nothing special. The fries inside were extremely cold, but the chicken very good. Was told previously they had great food but changed management or something and the quality has gone downhill. I was not impressed at all. Burgers have the over grind and gamey taste found at most places that serve burgers. But that issue norm here.

Went there on Sunday for the lunch buffet starting at 13:00.
Friendly welcome, food is very good and you have a large choice of meals.
For 30$ per adults, I think it s a good value for money taking into account the prices in Kinshasa.
Room for improvement in the place itself. The facilities could be renovated, it would not arm...
