Restaurant details
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Le Bistro is the type of restaurant where you go if you have plenty of time to enjoy the lake view and can indulge yourself in the range of good meals and well-stocked bar. The staff are competent and multi-lingual, and the manager is often present ensuring guests are well satisfied. The menu is not the longest in Gisenyi, but it is a little different and there is enough choice for most people. I have enjoyed the tomato and basil soup, the steak with a choice of sauces and the fish. On Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes Le Bistro offers a high-quality buffet. I should also add that the restaurant has a fast wi-fi system available to all guests, which makes it a very pleasant place to stay and do a bit of work.

Steak was very good with tasty Roquefort sauce. Mexican pizza was good, but not great (better than Cormoran, but not as good as Sol e Luna). Better option than the Serena for dinner, but very similar menu and food quality to dozens of other restaurants in Rwanda.

The restaurant overlooks Lave Kivu, and has a very charming terrace. The fresh tree tomato juice is a winner, as is the home-made ice cream. The main course I had was good, chicken provencal, but the underlying vegetables over-salted.

A wonderful place to relax in Gisenyi, less than a km from the main Goma crossing.

One the fastest service I experienced in Rwanda. Food is good, pizza is not bad considering to be in Africa.
The staff is nice and all of them speak english.
If you go there in the afternoon u can enjoy a nice view across Kivu Lake.

Four of us had a late lunch. We were a bit disappointed to learn of only a few options available, but what we had was terrific. My son-in-law had the Mexican pizza and said it was the best pizza he's had in Rwanda. He's lived in Kigali for 1 1/2 years. He enjoyed the seasoning and the thin crust. The other meals were also very good--another pizza, beef fried rice, a risotto. A definite go-back-to place with lake view.
