The river isn't the prettiest, but there is something special about sitting above the river. The food especially the roast fish is very tasty. The waitresses are polite and welcoming. Overall a great way to relax anytime you feel like.

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.

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...More

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...More
