The Chez Lando barbecue meeting place is a must for anyone living in Rwanda, or just visiting. We offer delicious Rwandan specialties such as goat brochettes, herb-stuffed tilapia fish or Chez Lando grilled chicken. Whether you choose to sit in the private bungalow-style dining areas or to be a part of the scene in the open-air patio, Chez Lando barbecue offers a unique experience in an atmosphere of friendliness and fun.
The hotel was partially destroyed during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda but the spirit of the founders prevailed, prompting Lando's siblings to take over, rebuild and expand. Hotel Chez Lando is managed today by Lando's sister, Anne-Marie Kantengwa. Hotel Chez Lando's daily and prolonged happy hours in the grill area have become a must for after-work relaxation for anyone living in, or visiting Rwanda.
“One of our signature attributes is that we value families and that is why our facilities cater for both men and women and children,” Kantengwa said."
