Hands down, this is now my favorite restaurant in Kigali. The ambience alone is easily the best - poolside dining - an open bar embracing the environment - the music and low lights in the evening. Luckily, the incredible owners didn't stop there: they decided...More

The new Fusion restaurant in Kigali well deserves a Michelin star. Set in an understated and elegant decor combining exotic wood and local artifacts, the atmosphere reflects the philosophy of the kitchen: applying the best of Western (Italian inspired) cooking techniques to local ingredients.

Everyone was extremely friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. Service could have been a bit faster, but pretty good for a group of 15 people. The desserts were AMAZING and the creative cocktails are really well prepared.

Fusion Restaurant manages to combine an easygoing atmosphere and serious cuisine, using the best of local ingredients to create new tastes. I started with the braised leeks, which were delicious, but the homemade spaghetti with goat bolognese was really superb. Don't miss the desserts--I tried...More
