Lac Kivu is very well-run, clean, relaxing and this might be what you need after exploring Congo or Goma. There are many buildings and restaurants, but just walk around when you first arrive to acquaint yourself. Beautiful sunsets down on the dock, literally sitting over...More

Anywhere you sit provides a nice view of the lake and the food is great. Prices are a bit higher than other restaurants in town but still fair value.

We came here for Sunday brunch, which is served buffet style. You are not allowed to order a-la carte, which seems a little strange. But it's worth it of you want to come for the buffet. Big selection, good food, and right on the lake!
