“Lovely hotel for Goma escape”
Review of Lac Kivu Lodge

Lac Kivu Lodge
Ranked #1 of 14 Restaurants in Goma
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Lac Kivu is very well-run, clean, relaxing and this might be what you need after exploring Congo or Goma. There are many buildings and restaurants, but just walk around when you first arrive to acquaint yourself. Beautiful sunsets down on the dock, literally sitting over the water. The pool is at another building on a nearby property and that's really the ONLY negative I can think of. Food is pricey, but you're in Congo...

Anywhere you sit provides a nice view of the lake and the food is great. Prices are a bit higher than other restaurants in town but still fair value.

Spent one night at Lake Kivu Lodge after a few days in Virunga National Park and prior to heading off to Bukavu. It was a very quiet and relaxing location away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Goma. The room was lovely and the food was great.

This place was like an oasis. The food was excellent (and I am an NYC foodie), and the atmosphere was out of this world lovely.

The staff don't speak great english in the restaurant, but they do well enough to get you ordered and pay.

Will absolutely plan to stay here, not just eat here, next time I go to Goma!
