Notwithstanding the rather impolite waiters (on the verge of being blatantly arrogant sometimes), and the painfully slow service, the food is excellent, certainly worth the wait and icing on the cake, relatively cheap by Kinshasa standards.
The restaurant overlooks a handball court and a massive swimming pool together with the perpetual Congolese greenery making a beautiful surrounding to a succulent lunch or early dinner

This is a very pleasant open air bar and cafe overlooking the tennis courts and pool of the Cercle Elais sports club at Le Voyageur (Elais) hotel. The sandwiches are adequate, but the African dishes are spectacular, especially the river fish.

I stayed in Le Voyageur hotel and within the same compound, you get La Paillote restaurant. The restaurant is surrounded by swimming pool, basketball ground and tennis court and while eating good food, you can enjoy the sporting activities. The food is clean and tasty. I have tasted steak, fish and wraps and all are good. The menu is in French and if you don't speak and read French, it is difficult to order. Only one or two waiters speak fair English. Average price is between $20 and $30, a bit expensive but that is how it is in Kinshasa. But, at least you get good value for the money you pay.
