“Excellent food, even better hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant is really very good. The restaurant is located about 2 km from the centre of Bujumbura near the lake Tanganyika shore (across the road). There is a big parking place if you come by car. The restaurant provides both indoor and outdoor seating. Decoration is nice. But the best thing is food. It is really very-very delicious. The hosts are very attentive and you can order some types of fish not available in the menu (if you wish so). In any case the menu is quite extensive, but I definitely recommend fish dishes (the best I have tried in Burundi and in Africa). The list of wines is also big. Beware that Sunday is day off. Note that there is a hotel adjacent to the restaurant (and run by the same people) – definitely recommended.

“Class act”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

In the midst of dirty, gritty Bujumbura was this touch of class. Great food, unbeatable setting in an open air restaurant on the beach. Breakfast was also tops.

“VERY IMPRESSED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The food is delicious, the atmosphere is nice, the owners and the staff are very accommodating. It is obvious that they strive for excellence in what they do. The steak is so tender and well prepared. My husband have eaten there several times, and each time, they went over and above to serve us well and prepare our food to perfection. We will go back every time we are in Bujumbura. We were VERY IMPRESSED. Go if you have the chance to!
