This is what I call fine dinning, the food was deliciously tasty. Lots of complimentary treats from the chef. Perfect location with by mountainous views of Kigali while we eat. I would go again. Prices were fair.

Brachetto is located close to the US embassy in Kigali in lush forest surroundings. The ambiance is very much Italian, from music to the empty wine bottles decor. A very good menu and wine list, outstanding compared to most other places in Kigali. We had...More

Dessert is a favorite for us, and the chocolate mousse with thyme is incredible. Brachetto is also a great place to take guests for lunch. The buffet isn't a typical Rwandan buffet but offers fresh salads and great cold dishes. The staff is also very...More

We enjoyed yet another delightful evening at Brachetto with dear friends from Kigali. We always try to order a sampling of foods, so as to get a good idea of beef, poultry and fish dishes. Brachetto always pleases, never disappoints. The food is exquisite both...More

Payment is better done in RWF, however i'm sure they wouldn't mind accepting USD. Check with them before you sit down to eat/drink however.
