“Good, but a bit sterile”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had lunch here. The place is clean, new, nice and has friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable, the coffee is good. The garden is large and, if weather permits, nice to lounge in.

However, the whole place also feels a bit sterile, too clean, if you will. While the inside chairs and benches are fancy, the outside chairs and tables are your standard plastic garden furniture.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

After 3 months living and travelling in Uganda our visit to Dutchess was a great experience. We never expected to find a restaurant like this; the food was absolutely delicious and very well presented. The waiters were very kind and helpful. We had dinner and lunch over here and if we would have stayed longer in Fort Portal we would have defiantly come back.
I hope the owners will keep continuing running the restaurant like this, it's great to have a restaurant with European standards from time to time.

“Excellent food in a beautiful garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here with our two kids for three nights and had breakfast, lunch and diner. It's new and it shows, very clean and large. Food is european style with very tasty sandwiches. Eat out in the garden, if it's not to cold. Staff is friendly and will try to help with everything. Lies on a quiet street, close to an ATM, easy walk from the main street. They have Wifi and a few internet-pc's. Highly recommended if your staying in Fort Portal.
