Modern African Cuisine in the heart of Kigali

Heavenly views

Heaven Restaurant was custom built in 2008 to be the first hospitality training restaurant in Kigali. On an open-air terrace with expansive views of Kigali, Heaven is known for its innovative modern African cuisine and excellent service experience. Heaven has trained over 3,000 Rwandans in hospitality, customer service and culinary skills since its opening. Heaven is more than a restaurant, it is a cultural venue featuring an onsite art gallery, traditional banana wine making experience, children’s playground, and Made in Rwanda retail boutique.

Culinary experience

Heaven is constantly evolving its culinary approaches with one central theme: modern African cuisine with local Rwandan ingredients. We work closely with local farmers and cultivate several organic gardens. We offer on-site mixology classes and feature a traditional banana wine making experience for those excited to dive into traditional Rwandan food and drink.

Conference & events

Multiple open-air venues across all properties are perfect for hosting private events from our popular Urban Bush Dinner to private weddings, daytime conferences, and intimate honeymooner dinners.
