Heaven sets a high bar for the fine dining scene in Kigali. I love the fish tacos and the brunch is probably the best in the city. The drinks are also stellar--I strongly recommend the mojito!

All the food we had, and we went there three times in our 4 day stay in Kigali!, was delicious as were the cocktails. Unusual flavours and combinations. Quite pricey but worth the indulgence!

Our menu is modern African - everything on the menu has a hint of cuisine from somewhere on the continent. Our most popular dish is our filet mignon with cassava chimichurri. We have lots of vegetarian options as well.
