Good, reliable restaurant

One of our favorite restaurants. I've found all dishes to be reliably good, if rarely truly exceptional. The menu is huge, but we're rarely told that they're out of individual items (which not infrequently happens at other restaurants). Professionally run. I wouldn't put it in my top three... read more

Moved on from Kigali, but still have fond memories of this place. Amazing views, friendly staff, and the pizza? Oh the pizza. Huge, wood-oven fired, so many to choose from. The buffet is great too, but I'm a pizza girl at heart...

Happy with Italian-style pizza (large selection of good ingredients), pasta (including lasagna), and wine (even by the glass) selection is probably one of the best for mid-range Kigali. Not a bad buffet for lunch during the week, but a bit expensive. Have not yet been disappointed by a la carte options (although some offal seem to have made it to... More

We had a wonderful dinner here, suspended on the hillside and an easy walk from Chez Lando in Remera district. Pizza was great, service was very nice, and the atmosphere was enjoyable in every way.

Nice pizzeria close to the airport and hotels. The restaurant is big, 3 areas to dine from. All have views of Kigali. We ate there for lunch on the 21st June. We had salads and pizzas all were tasty. The presentations were pleasing to the eye. As for dessert we had a chocolate mousse and a Tiramisu which brought us... More

If this place didn't have a great terrace and views over Kigali, it probably would have died ages ago. It's probably the closest you'll get to an airport or motorway restaurant in a town: the food is perfectly OK but the attitude of the staff - and particularly the management - is that customers are simply passing traffic. They can't... More
