A single cocktail cost 6,000 RWF. The food was average, beef and fish brochettes which you can find anywhere for 7,000 RWF and a "salad" for 7,000 RWF. Nice view of the city though.

I went to this restaurant to have a different meal experience, but at the end it was quite normal. Most of the condiments were not available and completely changed of what it was in the menu. Positively, the owners receive vey well and the staff is friendly. Hope next time can be better...

We went here for our anniversary dinner and were totally underwhelmed. Maybe it'll get better? They didn't have half the components for the Greek Salad and while the souvlaki was good, nothing was fantastic.

The best is the counter, it is a great place to meet new people. The food is quite good and the owners are really nice people. I highly recommend having a chat with Becky.

The building fits the look, great location and view. However we were disappointed with the food. Being very familiare with Greek and Mediterranean food did not help. We were disappointed with the food and the flavour. The waiting staff at our table did not speak English so could not explain properly. The place has potential. If you lower your expectation...

If you are looking for a place where to have good food, a nice view on Kiyovu, and if you are alone, good company, I suggest you try this place. The food is not sophisticated: a mixture of Greek and Belgian cuisine, but always good and with fresh ingredients. Cocolio and his wife Becky will always welcome you for a... More

Deep inside of Kimihurura, there is Greece. It looks confusing, but it's Genuine Greek Style building! Interior design is nice and Greek food also good. Try Greek dish here!

Perhaps it is silly to try a greek restaurant in Central Africa. So, we might have gotten what we deserved. But living in Kigali we wanted something different than rice and beans. This was worse than rice and beans! The meat was not edible, the fish tasted stale and almost rancid. Being Greek, I found little that tasted like my... More
