This upscale Belgian-inspired hotspot has long been considered one of Kigali’s best restaurants. The desserts here are just as fabulous as the main courses, with the panna cotta particularly standing out. Panna cotta is rarely the most exciting dessert option on the menu, but with tart strawberries, crunchy meringue, and the creamy panna cotta itself, this cute little dessert is the perfect end to a hearty meal at Poivre Noir.

With sweltering summers and humid rainy seasons, Kigali is undoubtedly a town in need of a proper ice cream parlor. Kigali’s newest ice cream shop, Delizia Italiana, is the city’s ultimate gelateria. They have the usual flavors, like chocolate, Nutella, and vanilla, but also have a couple of creative combinations worth trying. Check out the pear and ricotta ice cream, a creamy and flavorful scoop that is as delicate as it is tasty.
