Best place to visit in Brazzaville, verry friendly service, fast and clean space , vip place available for business work

Date of visit: June 2021

A place I visit frequently to get very reasonably priced and tasty shawarmas and falafel wraps from the restaurant, and home made sweet yoghurt which is very nice. They are also the most famous place in Brazzaville for pastries and icecream and certainly worth a...visit.More

La Mandarine produces one of the best chicken schwarmas I’ve had in ages. The restaurant is bustling, with a very simple decor. The AC in the back section is really welcome on a hot and humid day. Prices are reasonable and service is quick.

We grabbed a perfectly decent quick lunch here. There's a VIP area in the back where the air conditioning is better and there's a bit more space, but you pay slightly more for your food. The pastry selection at the front looked attractive but we...didn't try it. Definitely a good pitstop in downtown Brazzaville.More

Had a quick lunch at our usual hide-out after a shopping morning. The service was great and loved the steak and fresh chips with a lovely french sauce. Prices are good and service good too (always served fast since we're now known).

This is our usual hide-out for yum burgers most Friday nights. They have a variety of burgers and fillings. Though the service is not as great on public holidays due to many clients.. overall they have great service on Friday nights.

We ventured to “La mandarine” on a Sunday morning to discover one of the best breakfasts I had in Congo. Prices are extremely reasonable for crispy french croissants, good coffee, a very, very tasty omelette, juices, all assisted by attentive, courteous and quick service. The...restaurant has quite a few rooms, maybe a bit dark but charming. The pastry choice is immense and mouthwatering. La mandarine also has a superb choice of home-made gelato coming in several tropical flavored as well as crêpes dedicated corner. If you are in Brazzaville don’t miss the chance to try out this gem !More
