Good quality of food but quite pricy. Nice decoration and have a good ambiance to watch the sunset. They have happy hours for cocktail every day from 17.00-19.00. If you come during the day you will be bothered with lizards hanging around under the table and your foot.

Tried to have a reservation on April 30th, nobody answers the phone all day long... On top of that, there's no notice of closing on the site nor on FB... That's not very professional...

We have been here 2 times, both of our visits were great. Sea food is the main dish here. Fish or crustaces were both delicious.

Apparently this has only recently re-opened after a period of renovation. It is now a beautifully styled restaurant with large round windows giving a lovely view of the beach. The maitre d was charming and didn't give us any menus just gave the whole menu to us verbally. The food was absolutely yummy!!! We were in a group and I... More

I just loved everything about this restaurant. The food was heavenly. The white fish risotto was the best I have ever eaten. Good wine selection. The service was excellent. I was tired and feeling the heat when I arrived within minutes I felt relaxed and pampered by the staff. A memorable evening!

Good upper class restaurant known to be one of the best in Libreville. Have a good menu with good food. Service is OK. Does not live up to price range nor reputation. Absolutly better places in Libreville.

Great food and nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, a price tag comes along with it. It's one of the most expensive restaurants in town, but the food is the same as many of the other French Cuisine restaurants...we probably wont go back.

The attention of the staff is top notch. The food, the ingredients to the last detail were excellent. I can't remember a restaurant in Europe that was this good, honestly. There are only two negative remarks: the decoration is "excessive" and the price, well, you better be prepared, but is worth.
