“Good food, good view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Four of us had a late lunch. We were a bit disappointed to learn of only a few options available, but what we had was terrific. My son-in-law had the Mexican pizza and said it was the best pizza he's had in Rwanda. He's lived in Kigali for 1 1/2 years. He enjoyed the seasoning and the thin crust. The other meals were also very good--another pizza, beef fried rice, a risotto. A definite go-back-to place with lake view.

“Good food almost in the Congo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We were pleasantly surprised when we had lunch at White Rocks. The service was efficient with the young man speaking very good english. We all ordered fish capitaine or tilapia. The dishes were tasty and it was clear that chef also was interested in nice presentation as well. The pineapple juice was also the best that we have had. To top it off there is a nice view from the terrace.

“great views of DRC and Rwanda!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We loved the food (awesome burgers) and the great views. Plus, they have wi-fi you can use. We actually came here two times in two days--we enjoyed it that much! Great place to go when in Gisenyi!

“White Rock Bistro is excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I think this was the fastest food experience I have ever had in all of Africa. Food was delivered to my table easily inside of 5 minutes. The food and presentation was excellent. And the staff were also wonderful. I would definitely recommend a visit to the White Rock Bistro.
