Pointe-Noire boasts sufficiently impressive eating options to keep oil execs happy for at least a week; prices are high, but so is quality. If you'd like something more down to earth, don't miss the stalls that set up every afternoon and evening at the southern end of La Côte Sauvage, a few kilometres south of the city. Locals flock here for a sunset beer and plate of spicy fried fish (CFA2000).
