“Good for Rwanda”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

The tasting menu experience is always awesome and the idea of this restaurant is great - only open 2 nights a week, less than 20 people per night, everybody served at once, etc. Food is definitely good for Rwanda, but wouldn't compare at all to a similar style restaurant in a big city in the US or Europe. They don't offer wine pairing and when you ask about the few wines they have the wife will tell you she doesn't know anything about them. You'll leave spending about $100 per person and have a great time, but you won't feel like it was really worth $100. Owners are really nice and I've seen that they offer Cuban food sometimes (Chef is Cuban), which I'd be willing to go back once more to try.

“Fine dining in Kigali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Tonight I visited Paladar Venceremos for one of the best meals I've ever had, and not just in Kigali: a 5 course set menu cooked from scratch by Carlos and served on the balcony of their home. Tonight the menu was entitled Father's Day Menu, and every course had a extra little something to provide a special touch. The port wine and onion marmalade, the roast corn and seafood chowder, the rosemary mashed potatoes and the chimichurri sauce with the fillet, and the desert: rum and chocolate crème caramel, with raspberry coulis & tuile,; all accompanied by a very nice South African sav blanc. The flavours we explored were wonderful and the ambience on the balcony pleasantly quiet with a great view. The service was unobtrusive but attentive. It was fabulous and we greatly enjoyed the whole experience.
I went with a friend, however there were also a table of 10 and a foursome there tonight. As a venue it is intimate enough for a romantic diinner for 2, but it also accommodates a larger group. It is probably a little expensive for family dining unless you have deep pockets.
This restaurant is only open 2 nights a week and by email booking only. It is an intimate venue which can seat only 16. We arrived promptly at 1900 hrs as requested. Bottled water and breadsticks on the table along with a menu although this was only a formality. The menu is set but accomodates vegetarians and changes each week. The menu is advertised online,
All in all an excellent evening.
