We loved the food and atmosphere at the Heaven restaurant. Had some great fish and it was beautifully presented and prepared. Delicious! We loved the setting and art work as well. Ate dinner, breakfast and lunch there.

We really enjoyed our evening at Heaven being served by Amid who was great. We had a cocktail and a main each (perch and prawns). Both were fresh and really tasty. It's a lovely atmosphere out on the terrace and the art gallery next door is worth a visit. Prices are similar to London so on the pricey side but... More

Nice spot, nice menu, nice service. slow kitchen, but we were not in a hurry as the patio dining is very pleasant. Food was very tasty, nothing fancy but a good kitchen.

Restaurant is excellent. Rooms are pretty and cosy. Friendliest staff ever. Ally, one of the receptionists, went out of his way to make sure my colleagues and I were comfortable and even recommended some great sites to see in Kigali. Wonderful atmosphere. Overall, great experience.

We stayed here a couple of nights and ate in the restaurant. The food was fantastic, especially the breakfast. They even noticed when we were getting cold in the evening (because we sat outside) and they brought us blankets! The staff are very willing to help and organised a city tour for us with some others who were staying there.... More

We spent several days over three weeks at Heaven, enjoying the incredible food, comfortable rooms and friendly, attentive staff. By our third visit, they knew us by name! We loved relaxing in the open-air restaurant (get the fish tacos!) and the Sunday brunch buffet. The rooms have fans, which we appreciated, and the wifi is great.

It would have all worked well had they swapped the meal prepared incorrectly. We ordered lots of items from the menu expecting to share a few and ordered one meal without onion in the salad, after confirming it could be done. When it arrived it was with onions. Upon pointing this out, the server agreed that though easily done, the... More

Wish they were more flexible with making things for those with more restricted diets. The food took so long they could have made the adjustments I asked for. The chef could easily have spoken to me and rustled something up, especially as there were so few people. The vegan dessert was a surprise and very nice indeed. A lovely atmosphere... More

The staff are very friendly and the owners very chatty, and it feels good to be at a business which has such a large community development component.
