A casual but friendly place for excellent thin crust pizza with a view of the lights of Kigali. The menu is extensive but would stick with basics and ask what is not available before ordering. Ditto for the wine list but possible to get a good bottle of red (or stick with the good local beer)

I have visited this restaurant twice before and it was reasonably good. Today however, not only was the service horrible, the food was entirely tasteless and I had to drown it in salt and pepper. I constantly had to remind the staff to wait on me as they seemed to forget I was there. To add on, the house wine... More

Largest selection of pizzas in Kigali. I love the Olivier with mozzarella, apples, and honey....so good and light been when you eat an entire pizza by yourself! Order ahead by calling the bar on Mondays during quiz night. Service is a little unwelcoming at the tables on quiz night, but I can understand it with the crowd. Other days non-quizzical,... More

Everyone goes here for pizza... everyone! Monday night trivia is a great way to have fun and meet people. The pizza (and that hot oil!) is a highlight of my trips to Kigali.

This place was recommended by a Rwanda Air employee. Good recommendation Pizza list of 100 pizza! Initial waitress wasn't friendly , but waitress taking order was fine Service a little slow , ala E Africa. It's a transform from pace of say London. Happy medium somewhere! Enjoyed the pizza and spicy means spicy ! Would recommend.

We had dinner there, as it was recommended by friends who have lived in Kigali a couple of years. As is almost everywhere the case in Africa, the servers were very cheerful, friendly and eager to please. The first thing that captured my attention was that there didn't seem to be a single table occupied by locals: only non-Rwandans. They... More

Sol e Luna was nearby I was staying in Kigali, so I decided to have dinner where. The outdoor dinning is incredible and the view amazing. It was a little bit late so I had to choose a pizza. I truly recommend the pizzas: fresh products and really Italian flavour. The dessert was incredible (mousse of chocolate). The service was... More
