We had an ok dinner in Brachetto. The food menu is quite small and pretty standard - but also not particularly interesting. Definitely up your street for exorbitantly priced wines or imported European water (can’t believe the need for this - with 3 choices!). Service...More

I regularly eat at Brachetto for lunch with business associates. They have an excellent and large salad / vegetable bar a choice of 4-5 hot dishes and desert and coffee. Service is always fast and friendly and I would highly recommend a meal here.

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.

This is a great place to hit for lunch. I find the dinner menu to be a bit stifling and there are better places for fresh Italian food at this point. But the setting is lovely on a terrace in a converted home. Service is...More
