We enjoyed a very good meal, the staff was friendly and professional. The portion was maybe a little small, but then again food was delicious and we got a free starter from the kitchern (bread and a portion of good soup), we had the game meal of the day, and that was beef from deer, served with a good red wine. After the main course, we ordered the apple pie,.. but the chef was out of apple pie and offered a apple strudel desert instead. The meal was perfect. highly recomend this place.

We went here before going to the Ballet at the Opera House. The restaurant is located just across the road from it.

The restaurant has great decor and fantastic food. We were treated to a complimentary small taster starter, which was great. The mains were well presented. Grilled beef fillet steak served with herb butter fried potatoes, wild mushrooms was out of this world and the steak cooked to perfection (The best steak I have had in a very long time). My girlfriend had Pork Belly and though a little fatty (as it usually is though hard to cut off) the meat itself was ok. If you do go to Kilimanjaro, try the sweets... I can recommend the Apple Pie and the Cottage Cheese tart. Both excellent.

The staff were attentive and very welcoming. A very relaxed meal with great wine. Thoroughly recommended.

Atmosphere in the restaurant is really relaxing. It is in a conveniant location - right in the city center (in a walking distance of about any place in the center). I had probably one of the best steaks in the restaurant. The African theming also gives it a nice charm. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Riga ;o)

Good place to try something new, As African cuisine is not common in Latvia, this is the place were to come for new smells and tastes. Prices are adequate for meal you have, African spicy soup is what you should try ( with mushrooms, chicken and shrimps ) There are also special African menu. Also if you want something completely different and special, you should try to call them time from time they have unique African meat dishes delivered from the origin. We visited it on Wednesday and it was quite in there but that was just what we needed as we wanted to have quite meal. Otherwise place looks that it "opens up" ( shows his atmosphere ) when it is more people in there. So enjoy.
