We went there for dinner. It's a decent place offering good food. The service could be better. We got different food than what we asked for. Which however was changed after we raised the issue.

Been here several times but briefly each, for coffee and bites, ice-cream. Great confectos too. The location, depending on the time of the day, is also an easy reach shelter when the traffic on the road is bad. Pull over into the restaurant, have a bite as the traffic clears off!

Wonderful food, very attentive (and fast, which is a rarity in Kampala) staff, and a nice variety of dishes. This is in a little hotel, along with a few other shops, and it's such a nice retreat from the chaos of Ggaba road and the Karbalagala neighborhood. I would absolutely recommend this place, and it helps that it has very... More

So-called first class restaurant "Le Château" is average and overpriced, with personnel not trained (= not well paid?) who don't know what they're doing. Breakfasts are good though (bread from "La Pâtisserie"). + some of the food is frozen I think, or at least shrimps tasted like it. Also for some reason there are two "Le Château" restaurant with the... More

My Ugandan colleagues took me for dinner. At first i was like, French food? Why! But I must say, the thatched terrace is lovely and the live music is relaxing and not the loud show you get at other places. We all ordered different things and everything looked good. I had the shrimp croquettes- tasty but not amazing- and the... More

I visit Le Chateau Restaurant almost every week, and most of the time ordering same food. Every time, I am ordering seafood on skewers and getting more and more disappointed. It’s too dry, burned and tasteless. Last time I asked waitress to tell chef not to burn it, but he still did. Starter: crab meat and avocado salad is every... More

I went there for lunch, had grilled pork chops with onion sauce, garnished with some spinach and a side of fries. The pork chops were really good, and the sauce went well with them. The fries are not the best I-ve had, but still yummy! My partner had a mushroom steak with which he was quite satisfied with. We then... More

Following a previous bad review I thought I'd give them another chance for lunch. Although only tree tables with clients our simple order of 2 hamburgers and 1 chicken nuggets took one hour to reach the table. Hamburgers were dry and tasteless and chicken overcooked. Desert was a disaster with soggy, microwave heated Belgium waffles, we asked for vanilla ice... More
