I work and live in Goma and I have to say that Lac Kivu Lodge is for me the best restaurant in town, the one I go to when I feel for a treat. The food is partly international and partly Congolese, but all done at a high level. The staff is professional, the place is really nice and the... More

The hotel staff is friendly and the place is clean. Not luxurious but cosy. There was construction going on during my stay which was not the best thing when you want to get work done or take a nap during the day. The quality of the wifi is fine when it is working. The breakfast is descent. Overall good stay... More

This place remains consistently good. Back again after quite a break and it still excels at what it does. Food is great, ambience is wonderful. The most serene place to eat in Goma.

The food here is excellent. And the kitchen is rather quick. The staff is very friendly, the atmosphere by the leak is wonderful. The wifi in the restaurant is also decent.

I have been to Lac Kivu Lodge for lunch several times while working in Goma. It is a bit inaccessible due to the terrible Goma traffic, so if you go, make sure that you have plenty of travel time. Everything that I had there was exquisite, but I'm especially fond of their locally produced mushrooms. Almost all the tables are... More

As promised, I have to follow up with a separate review of the restaurant here in Lac Kivu Lodge, because it's deserving of a praise. Every moment we had, our group spent eating and enjoying our time here in the Lodge with the amazing food that is prepared by the Chef. For our 2 nights stay here, we had every... More

I have worked in Goma for a while and found the Lac Kivu Lodge early in my stay in Goma. The food menu is not exhaustive but it has some great selections and usually has something for everyone, ie steaks, fish, salads, raclette (if you ask in advance). Even on a heavy rain day you can sit under the veranda... More

The view is a delight to sore eyes.. And the food great.. Especially with a multinational crowd the environment is lively.. A good choice to have your meal.. A little overpriced though

Reasonably priced, great food, friendly service and a beautiful view - what more can one ask for ? We stayed at the lodge for two nights and this was a great place to relax after the gorilla-hike.
