Outstanding restaurant in Kigali, a first time visit for me. Excellent ambience, exceptional table service, extensive wine list. My smoked salmon starter and grilled salmon main were perfection! The wonderful aroma of Queen of the Night orchids from the gardens permeated the air.

Well located near some excellent bars and restaurants, L'epicurian is a fantastic little spot with great food and a nice ambiance. What's more, it is the perfect place to bring a date or one's spouse. Romantic, delicious and fun, I shall most certainly be returning.

Tucked away and quiet. Pleasant staff. Vegetarian menu was limited to bistro style and focused less on entrees. Overall a pleasant experience.

Were invited for dinner in this nice restaurant in the Kimihurura area of Kigali. Plates nicely made up and excellent food. Not cheap but worth while the money.

I've been here many times over the years. It's a nice converted house setting - the menu hasn't changed much - and the food is very average. Absolutely solid in terms of quality but there are newer better options in kigali at this point.

With the rise of many good restaurants this one needs to up its game. Fish sent back, chicken had hardly touched a grill and a mush for vegetables. The only response we got was i suppose the wine is ok. Poor menu, poor attitude and...More

OK - so the food here is nothing gourmet - it's mainly French bistro types of things but the greeting and service is reasonably good and it's a cute little area for a quiet meal.
