Went there to get a quick lunch with a colleague. The food was quick and acceptable (boeuf bourguignon) so that was good. Other than that, I really don't think I'd come here more often. Service was quick enough and value seemed about right. But but, the interior is a bit jaded and doesn't have a lot of charm, the meals... More

The food is good and tasty, but the service is kind of slow, you'll need patience if you're then for a quick lunch

You can call l'Orangeraie and order take-out, so it's ready to pick up when you stop by. They have a special: 1/2 chicken for 5,000 francs.

Ate a late lunch there, and was disappointed by the limited fixed menu choice. Food itself was acceptable, but not of a very high standard to be found elsewhere in Kinshasa. Pricing was on the high side for what we got.

Old timers and regulars make up for a dated interior. Decent buffet over the weekend with live local ensemble. Week day menu standard with a tough tasty steak and chips, topped with fresh chilli. If it's a hot day definitely head here, the aircon is on super freeze.

Used to go there a lot for lunch as they have a special menu at a reasonable price. However, since a certain time the quality of the dishes had decreased and I got sick twice. Not taking the risk since then.

The place looked grubby, smelled awful, and the staff moped around like their best friend had just died. To be fair, I didn't try the food, but my friend and I found it totally off-putting.
