This place is out of the world. In Burundi I think there is no other place such this one. African food or european food all 5 stars. The staff is a miracle. Super attention all the time, very professionals and kind. Top of the top. A place to visit again for sure.

The steak was tender and very taisty. The same steak in the night club area was dry and lacked the same volume of sauce as at the main restaurant.

This old colonial restaurant arguably has the finest cuisine in town. Set on the banks of L. Tanganyika, it provides the setting for a wonderful dining experience. Order the sangala.

I ate twice at the Restaurant Tanganyika and being a big seafood person loved every minute of it. Everything I ate over the two meals, mostly fresh fish from the lake cooked with different sauces, was full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The fresh seafood aside, the restaurant's charm definitely add to the experience.

We actually stayed here in the one of five rooms. The rooms and restaurant are set in a great garden right in front of the public beach so loads to see. An easy walk to town and other dinning/drinking options. The place itself is delightful a 1950 art-deco building and site of Prince Louis Rwagasore's assassination in 1961. The owner... More

Want to taste top quality Burundian products turned into fine Belgian cuisine? Then this is your place. By means of side order you can meet the Burundian top-100 business people and officials here as well. Looking for affordable relaxed African dining? Not the right place.
