“Nice View of the Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Very nice food and garden ..Liked the setting and affordable! However, the lake is not visible at night! Needs some flood lighting for one to see the beach!

“Excellent food, very pleasant garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

This was by far my best dinner experience in Bujumbura. The restaurant is located in a lovely garden, food was excellent (both my colleague and I had the special, which was also very reasonably priced), service was good and they provided mosquito repellent even before I asked for it. Definitely recommended.

“Great view, good ambiance in the garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

One of my favourite places in Bujumbura. Situated on the lake but still in town, the garden makes dining secluded and you almost never see the waiters (hence you should order strategically because the service is slow).

Try the brochette Ubuntu or the Makeke as local favourites and they do not disappoint.

“Best place in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Great place, nice view & good food. The place is situated in one of the best spot in Bujumbura, near the lake without leaving town. The garden is very nice and big (for family)! difficult to see this kind of garden in other hotel in Bujumbura. The food is good, specially the pizzas and the burgers but also all the grills (meat very tender!). Service is a bit low but as anywhere in Bujumbura at the moment ! What else to say... the ambiance is good, always people and events, the "table haute is very nice to meet people in town. For the prices.. normal, good price for the quality, not cheap not expensive, good average but for burger prices very low for the quantity of food!! be careful of the size of the plate!
