We had dinner with 6 friends at Kilimanjaro last Saturday night. Definitely make a reservation for this restaurant in weekends, it is not very big and it was totally full. This little gem has a 20 year history, but I'd never been there before last Saturday. But I will come back there for sure, I loved the food. They do a mix of food from different areas on the African continent, from South-African to Ethiopian. Some dishes are served with rice or couscous; the ethiopian dishes are served with a big pancake (you can use it to pick up the food as you eat with your hands here). My friends shared a big plate with a mix of all the dishes available; I had the vegetarian one. Both plates were absolute delicious. More pancakes were served without us asking for them when we finished the first round. The desserts - especially the fresh fruit with coconut ice - were also very recommendable. Oh and don't forget to order one of the special beers they serve, like coconut or bananabear. No glasses here, but wooden cups. For people that don't (want to) drink they have tasty fruitjuice and homemade lemonade. They roast their coffee themselves; after dinner one of the women from the kitchen gave us a quit insight in this process,presenting the roasting beans at the table in a hot pot. The coffee was amazing! What makes it extra nice is that it is cheap. The only downside is that there is only one person serving the food (and as the kitchen is very small I reckon there are only 1 or 2 people working there as well) and service is kinda slow, we waited 45 minutes for our dish (happily drinking the coconut beer though). Also because you eat some of the dishes with your hands it would be nice if they would serve like a hot napkin or something before and after dinner. But other than that I would heartily recommend this friendly little restaurant!
