Fine and tasty cuisine, exquisite meals in a wonderful spot, on the lake. Prices are a little more expensive than other restaurants in Goma but its totally worth it.

The food here is excellent. And the kitchen is rather quick. The staff is very friendly, the atmosphere by the leak is wonderful. The wifi in the restaurant is also decent.

I have been to Lac Kivu Lodge for lunch several times while working in Goma. It is a bit inaccessible due to the terrible Goma traffic, so if you go, make sure that you have plenty of travel time. Everything that I had there was...More
