First of all, this is the only butcher in town worth buying meat from. As simple as that. They also have home made German specialties. Attached to it is a simple restaurant, kind of a beer garden with German specialties and excellent grilled chicken. Every...More

Casual and comfortable but not a great variety in food. Service is all right. Definitely recommended and within walking distance of many hotels in Kigali.

definitely the best butcher in Kigali. I get all my meats here as they respect the cold chain and have high quality. Nice sausages too!

Went here because of the good reviews and wasn't disappointed. The open air seating, like at a lot of places in the city, is chill and inviting, and the service was on point. The server was on it with the drinks, and the food came...More

Nestled on a hill overlooking the hills of Kigali, this unpretentious german restaurant is a great find! As you might expect, their fare is mostly German. They have great beer on tap, their lasagna is unusual but great, and their half grilled chicken is a...More
