Our tour guide took us to this restaurant for lunch after 6 days tripping around Uganda. A beautiful restaurant with 'safe' food. Would highly recommend this place to tourists wanting good quality food in Kampala.

Visited with family in August 2017. We were able to make reservations at very short notice, and the team was very helpful. The food did not disappoint. The parking space is a little limited but you wouldn't be disappointeed.
