Had a nice relaxing evening at Kiboko Grill. Good cold draught beer, samosas with pili-pili while watching hippos and cranes. Gentle breezes off of Lake Tanganyika to keep you cool. Friendly staff.
If you don't have transportation make sure to have a cab scheduled to pick you up after 9.
Take some mosquito repellant, they can get feisty.

We had a great evening at the Kiboko Grill, Ubuntu hotel and residence. It is a great atmosphere near the Lake Tanganyika and if the light is right, you get to see hippopotami grazing as you have your sumptous meal.

The restaurant is outdoor seating with the garden in full view. The waiters were very attentive, it was a large group but there was no mixing up of orders. The food was very well done and they have a wide selection of soft drinks, liquor and wines!!!

Great outdoor spot with good pizza and the occasional hippo sighting.

PROS: Good food at a fairly decent price (ask for the capitaine with frites), can sit on the patio for a long time into the evening and watch Lake Tanganyika.

CONS: A bit hard to get a taxi after your dinner if you need to get back to other parts of town, and mosquitoes can be a problem. Service is occasionally slow, which is not always such a bad things.

Nice Tanganyika view. Rare endroit to see hippos. It's a charming place to cheer with family seeping on their cold beer and pizza

Always a nice place to enjoy a nice day out with a beautiful view. Food is decent and there is a wide variety to choose from. Only issue is the drinks menu is limited compared to other restaurants that are similar to it. But apart from that its a good day outing.
