“Does not deserve your business”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful setting but the place is typically overcrowded, everything is overpriced, staff are arrogant and rude, food is mediocre, wierd rules like no laptops allowed inside during lunch, etc, etc. Numerous friends of mine have also had terrible experiences, particularly with the rude staff.

It gives off the impression that it's owned by some new money rich kid for use as a personal playground.

“See and be seen at Cayenne's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

In the evening this is a nice restaurant, maybe a little bit overprized although I did have the best pizza in Kampala at this place. At night this place is all about looking hot and partying. Not to sure about the big mustached Italian guys surrounded by bodyguards and "willing" ladies... Great place to party, met some cool people here!! Nice sound system and laser/smoke effects.

“Thieving bar tenders”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The place is overcrowded with wannabes who go there simply to appear 'cool' but it is simply another overcrowded mad house with no place to sit. The alcohol is overpriced considering the fact that they extort an entrance fee at the front gate, the bar man I paid my 50,000shs to refused to give me my change of 40,000shs and insisted I had given him only 10,000shs.

“Mayhem follows”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Q: What stands between a spacious, well-priced, friendly restaurant and a 5 star rating? A: food poisoning.

So steer clear. Unless you have the bowels of Conan the Barbarian, that pizza is trouble.
