In this section of the Vibe Kigali you can find an overview of restaurants in Kigali, including their menu, opening hours location (with Google Maps) and pictures. The restaurants listed here range from budget to haut cuisine and fine dining places.
The aim of Vibe Kigali is to provide a comprehensive overview of restaurants, bars and events in Kigali, so that readers don’t have to visit dozens of different websites.
Kigali’s restaurant scene has been growing rapidly over the last years. Of course there are plenty of restaurants that have been around for a long time, such as L’Epicurien Restaurant or Le Panorama, located in the famous Hotel des Mille Collines. But there are also plenty of younger places, and we keep adding new locations to the website every week.
One of the most famous restaurants in Kigali is Pili Pili, located in the hills of Kibagaga. From each table in the restaurant you have an amazing view over Kigali with the skyline in the distance. It’s a great place for a drink and sundowner as well, but arguably the best thing to order is the 1kg Barbecue Beef Filet, which comes with homemade Pili Pili Sauce.
Poivre Noir is another good example of a newly opened restaurant. Located in Kimihurura, the chef prepares a delicious variety of European and French cuisine, paired with local ingredients.
When it comes to wine selection, Brachetto Restaurant is the place to be in Kigali. Having been located in Kacyiru for years, it is the traveller’s as well as the local’s favourite.
If you like Asian food, there is a wide choice of Indian Restaurants spread all over Kigali, ranging from street food all the way to elaborate northern and southern Indian cuisine.
As you can see, Kigali, although it is small, has become quite a foodie paradise with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from.
