This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Rwanda. Service is good and the food outstanding. It is not as clearly signposted, you could easily get lost. It however is worth it, when you eventually find it. Hint - To get there, a good reference point is the RDB, once you are there, if you ask, most people know... More

I was in Rwanda on a business trip and had limited time at lunch to go to regular restaurants with slow service, so I always looked for a buffet. The Sol e Luna buffet was very nice, with many choices that would suit just about anyone. The only reason I say "just about anyone" was that, as a vegetarian, I... More

I recommend getting here before 7. We waited 90 minutes before getting our pizzas. Everything was good, but its a big place and gets crowded and the kitchen gets backed up. They have about 100 types of pizza and pasta.

Every time I pass by Sol e Luna, I can see many, many cars in front of this restaurant. I know it has scenic view and spacious place to seat. But, even though they had great oven and big kitchen, it needs some change. Every food was too salty... I don't know why but... yes. Food was salty.

We live in Muhanga, where things are a bit cheaper, but we came here for a special birthday treat for the buffet and it was delicious. I really can not say enough good stuff about it. It is a selection of salads and hot food, all very Italian. They use the finest and freshest ingredients and combine them in the... More

We ordered grilled Capitaine fish. It took exactly 30 minutes for the waiter to come back and tell us "sorry no more capitaine! ". He suggested grilled tuna with a variety of vegetables and sauce. An hour later and after many reminders the fish arrives: too dry to swallow without a sip of soda after each bite. The only vegetable... More

No frills, but simple good Italian food. The service is friendly and attentive, can be slow when crowded. The menu is extensive. The food is excellent. Simple pizza the best I have had outside Italy, Excellent tuna. Pasta as it should be. A panoramic view over the city. Really a pleasant place to have a meal.

gorgeous venue and stunning view, good food and very varied menu - some dishes are a bit funny (like pizza with tilapia) but overall the service is better than in other places in Kigali, you may find Belgian beer and good Italian wine on occasions. Highly recommended pizza boscaiola. Also, the lunch buffet is incredible in taste and value!

I have been there many times the last two years. Consistently good food and excellent view. At night, not well lighted entrance with stairs, unusual for such a nice place.
