This was the first meal we had in Uganda which felt like eating back in Australia. The menu included a lot of the regular dishes as well as pizzas. There could have been a little more 'local' food available though.

Dutchess restaurant combines the fresh products Fort Portal has to offer with home made dairy. Our excellent international cuisine serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are a trendsetter in Fort Portal. The first to make real pizza, cappuccino, home made ice cream, crocodile meat, porterhouse steak. We will continue to innovate. You can enjoy the food outside in the luscious garden, on the covered terrace or in the lounge. On cold days you can sit next to a warm and cosy fireplace in the restaurant. The garden is visited by many birds. You can see the Great blue Turaco, Ross' Toraco, sunbirds, African Harrier Hawk and many others. Even in the garden Wifi is available.
