Biggest surpise of my trip. Lovely little courtyard restaurant at the rear of a hotel in the centre of town. The food was outstanding and such variation on the menu. The service was very good and attentive.
I was so shocked to find such a great place in such a downtown area.
A truly hidden gem that is really worth finding
I will go again and again

Everything was excellent. My friends had the foil steamed fish and raved. Best chocolate mousse I have found in Africa

Food was OK, service slow even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Food is priced at between $10-$15.

I was in Bujumbura for over a month; Botanika was our default weekend lunch spot. Everything on the menu was great, service was very friendly and tolerated our atrocious French very gracefully. I wish I could take the whole place home. My favorite restaurant on the continent so far. Would be a huge success back in the US.
