This restaurant came highly recommended. It was a great location, lovely seating area and had attentive staff. And the food was well above average. The problem was the wine list. The selections were poor (very little was offered by the glass) and VERY overpriced. It...was my mistake not to check beforehand but I ended up paying 40,000 for a mediocre 14,000 bottle . I ended up pouring most of the glass back into the bottle and leaving it. I get it -- COVID and curfew times are hard but that markup was enough to make me never come back. When a restaurant specifically triples the price of a mediocre bottle of wine, they are treating the customer as a revenue unit, not a valued client. Which was disappointing because the food was better than good.More

I don't know about french food,but we ordered 3 foods but all food were so so salty we were not able to finish even half left. And price was about each dish -12000-15000rwf. I felt I wasted a lot of money. If you want to...date will be good place not for family meal.More

In my opinion this is the best French cuisine you can get in Kigali. Nice romantic atmosphere on the terrace, good wine selection, excellent food. I especially like the portobello mushroom entree if your looking for a vegetarian option.

The location is great with a beautiful outdoor dining area. But two tables seemed to overpower the entire outside seating. The food was nice although the steak was a bit tough. But the chocolate mousse was divine. Service was a bit slow with only a...handful of table but the staff was nice.More

My husband and I had been sightseeing all day and skipped lunch so we were starving. We were initially torn between Repub Lounge and Poivre Noir but decided we wanted something a bit more relaxing and chose the latter. We were not disappointed. There was...dim lighting, great food and a good selection of wine. There seemed to be a good mix of foreigners and locals that evening (it was a Saturday). The service was great - attentive without being intrusive. Would highly recommend, particularly for couples.More

Fortunately they prepared a table for us eventhough we didn't have booked a table. What a pleasant surprise to find such a fine dining restaurant in Africa! The food was without exception delicious.

To begin with positive ones. They do have a very nice food menu, European style one, well cooked and prepared. The service is a bit slow but with a good company you forget that. Value for money and for all hours of the day, lunch,...snack and dinner.More

This was our last stop in Kigali before we flew out and to be honest, I did not know if we would make the flight. We did! We had the pork filet and it was very good. It took almost an hour for our food...to come (we were the first and only folks in the restaurant for a bit of time). After the meal (we ate fast) - we had to get up and ask for the check. My problem with this is that no one in the restaurant seemed to notice or care. And, we had reservations for months!More

Make sure to make a reservation as the restaurant is small and essentially outside. It is a lovely space with a terrific view. The food is terrific and the service is good overall. It is certainly a worthwhile spot for dinner in Kigali.
