Good food, interesting served with banana leaves on the plate. I think it was for flavour. They did not have everything on the menu, so ask before you decide.

Got taken here by friends who have lived in Kampala for many years, it doesn't look like much but it doesn't fail to impress! Excellent steaks big, lean and well cooked, and crepes are excellent! Wine was ok and very cheap. 3 steaks, drinks wine and a shared desert only came to 100,000 shillings. Don't drive past this place!

We enjoyed an absolutely wonderful dinner here. The salad is delicious with an amazing dressing, that is apparently a family secret recipe. I had a fantastic steak. The ambience and service were on point. It's the perfect place for sharing an excellent meal with family or friends. Looking forward to my return visit.

-Wonderful place , particularly loved the steak and mushroom soup- although the proximity to the road is quite an issue.

This is a great place to dine with friends or family. The food is great and service very good. It is a good place to stay, the atmosphere is romantic with great gardens and a small swimming pool if you love swimming. Very close to town.

Great food as usual but the espresso was disappointing. Great steaks (3 out of the 4 diners) but the fish was a little cold. Smoked fish starter is great.

Have always received great food from here. It was great to be back for a visit. Just a pity about all the constant traffic going by on the busy road. Some more inside seating would be a superb idea!!
