Objectively, the prices are high here, even for Kinshasa. 13$ for a cheeseburger?! I've been here twice and I do enjoy the food. Most of all the setting is lovely, it's upstairs, overlooking the beautiful pool. The air is usually cool, with a breeze, and it's a nice place to visit.

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.

The food is good .. The place is also great and peaceful .. But the service needs some improvement .. The waiters can be friendlier
