Enjoyed a drink here with a friend in June and watched the sun go down over the river. The venue is old authentic and charming and you can sit right out on the water on the pier. Nice to pass an afternoon.

We decided to drive up to the port and come here for lunch. The food is delicious and prices are reasonable. We don't speak French and staff don't really speak English but they were very friendly and tried their best to communicate with us. Nice to sit by the river for evening drinks or meals.

Coming to this place is a real pleasure. The personnel is really hospitable, polite and nicely dressed. The atmosphere of the place is relaxed, a gentle breeze making one feeling cuddled. Big grilled prawns are amazing, as well as grilled "captain fish" and sole. I tried to call the number on a Sunday to make sure it'd be open -... More

We were excited to try the place because of the reviews on this site. We brought colleagues from other countries for one dinner this week and we had a terrible time! The meal was overpriced, the portions too small, and did not even taste fresh and well cooked! While the view would have been nice, the place is already quite... More

The fresh breeze makes this restaurant such a nice place to spend time at. It has a pier and quite a number of tables to sit, eat and enjoy the serene view over the river/bay. The food is good - the portions are not enormous and the prices are similar like in some other restaurants, but the atmosphere is just... More

The grilled Gambas, the grilled captaine fish steak, ndole and rice: all were good especially the fish steak. Excellent to visit on a Sunday. Overall, a clean place overlooking the river. (Not fancy but just clean local restaurant to enjoy good food).

Been to thsi place before and it's amazing to sit and have dinner or any meal for that matter while listening to the soothing sounds of waves of the Wouri. But the place seem to be aging and maintenance seems to slack a bit. The prices have gotten conderably high mostly because most people that eat here are tourits.

Fell in love the second I arrived. Had been looking forward to going based purely on the fact that everyone calls it the Colonial Club and had for weeks before I got to Douala harboured fantasies of Kenyan Happy Valley style excess. Cannot promise you excess but can promise the best view in Douala with a beautiful, just the right... More
