This restaurant is a 3 minute walk from Hotel Saphir and Radisson Blu. Right on the Congo River, it’s a lovely place for dinner. My son loved his pizza. I was looking forward to chicken in peanut sauce (a traditional Congolese dish), and it was indeed delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. A contortionist stopped by to entertain, that was...

Saturday dinner with colleague in Mami Wata. We had 2 beers: Mutzig (considered a flagship African brand Shared a pizza and a salad (Mami Wata Salad) The meal came with bread and butter. The best thing about Mami Wata is the view of the new and colorful bridge and Congo River and Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo)

And these 4 tables only for those visitors who just bought food. In... More

Great location on the Congo river, staff nice and helpful. I would recommend to ameliorate the quality of pizza - was too dry and dressing cheese was not mozzarella, as wrongly indicated on the menu.
