I have eaten at Botanika many times over the last 4 years and it keeps getting better and better. The restaurant is situated in a courtyard and the environment is tranquil. The food is good and competitively priced. The staff are friendly and service, which used to be quite slow, is now very efficient. To top it all off, there is free wifi. All in all, a meal at Botanika is really good value for money and a very enjoyable experience.

Lovely little gem tucked away off the main drag. Food is non typical for Burundi and presented beautifully. It can just be a but hot - no breeze in their courtyard.

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.
