“Always the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Bistro has to be the number 1 in Kampala and this is absolutely correct. The food at Bistro is always fresh and tasty plus the customer service is exceptional. The owner like several have said is always greeting and talking to customers to ensure they are happy and if you are not he makes sure to make you happy before you leave. We always go for breakfast and they are so family friendly . The deco is lovely and Internet access is perfect. I would highly recommend Bistro for staff parties and lunches . GO Bistro keep up the excellent service

“Never Disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The service, food and price are always on point. It's the kind of place you can go to frequently expecting the same high quality each time you're there. I do recommend the Pork Chops..

“Very good cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

It was great place: lovely decor, good service, nice menu. I enjoyed it and will return. But I wouldn't say it is the very best in all Kampala. That in no way is to take away from The Bistro which is across the parking lot from the new Acacia Mall. It is a very nice place, maybe a little less crowded since the Caffesserie opened in the new mall.There is both indoor and outdoor seating. The Indian selections are quite good as is the fish.

“A pleasant restaurant to have a nice meal in Kampala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I enjoyed the food at Bistro very much and it was real tasty. The service is perfect and the ambiance pretty good. A must visit while In Kampala. The wines are reasonably priced and I liked the home made chilli and bread sticks! A perfect place to eat out!

“Excellent Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The service was 1st class, food was excellent and the drinks were reasonable priced. The place has a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff and has probably the best WiFi in all of Kampala. I am so happy to have found this "The Bistro" and i will defiantly come back again. Highly recommended.
