I ate several times at the Mami Wata, the food was always good and the service always friendly. I recommend the fish (Capitaine) skewers and the Crab Farci (sometimes on the Chef's recommendations). The service can be slow most of the times, but because of...the nice views it's ok. But you should not think you could have a "quick lunch" there :)More

It was good. The shrimp platter was amazing. The alocco too. However, very slow service. Food took a lot of time.

We went to this restaurant in our last night at Brazaville. It is located besides the Hotel Radisson, where we stayed. It has a very friendly service. A had a delicious pizza and my daughter had prawns which she loved.

Located on the river in a nice neighborhood steps from the Radisson Blu hotel, Mami Wata is a deservedly popular restaurant with a charismatic, lively and local ambiance, friendly service and terrific food. At dinner my husband and I both had the sole meuniere with...haricots verts (string beans) and it was one of the best preparations of this dish that we've had, both the fish and vegetables were perfectly cooked, fresh, tender and delicious. I enjoyed a nice glass of white wine with the meal and we shared creamy chocolate and caramel ice cream for dessert. We had a great table on the terrace overlooking the river and weren't bothered by insects, though some swarmed around our menus when we used our phones to light them since the room was a bit dark. We enjoyed the meal so much that we returned a couple of weeks later for a late lunch prior to our flight home. One advantage of Mami Wata is that they are open continuously from lunch through dinner, so you can find a convenient time to dine based on your schedule. 4 pm lunch/dinner - no problem. Our server was delightful. This time I had the prawns, which were quite large and excellent, and my husband couldn't resist the sole again since it was so good the first time. We shared ice cream again so we can't comment on other dessert choices. Portions are generous so we didn't have starters. Very highly recommended!More

Been here many times, for those who know, its a bit difficult to find nice quality in some of the African countries. This place has good food -nothing crazy in terms of presentation etc but you will have a good time especially if you visit...Mami Wata for the sunset as some days they have live African music and the atmosphere is awesome.More

I ate here twice while in Brazzaville. The first was lunch with a larger group of people and the other was in the evening with a work colleague. Both meals were good. I did not go out on a limb on my first visit and...ordered one of their many pizzas. It was very good with fresh ingredients. I tried some of the other guests meals and they too were good. My second visit I had fish and chips. The fish was cooked perfectly and had great flavor. My only issue was discovering a large bone in one of the chunks of meat. The view here is great. The location is right in the water and you get great views of the river, and Kinshasa on the far side. Service was good, and friendly. My grasp of French is non existent, but the waiters know who to make it work if you can’t speak the local language. I would gladly eat here again.More

Nothing says Brazzaville more, to me anyway, than sitting in Mami Wata by the river, eating grilled fish and enjoying a cold beer. Great service, great view and solid food.

This restaurant has one of the best reviews in Brazzaville. You can order a drink and some food, and enjoy a meal overlooking the Congo River. Prices are $30 per person for a decent meal with a drink and most people like the pizza. Decent...service and access to jet skis and other water sports after you eat. Bring lots of Mosquito spray.More
