This is a conveniently located B&B in Entebbe. Close to the beaches and not far from the mall. The rooms are now tired and in need of some TLC. The owners are a lovely family and whilst I wouldn't necessarily choose this place to stay again, I would definitely recommend a visit to their bistro. The food was absolutely incredible, up there with the best we had in Uganda.

I ate at the bistro. I was looking for a different place but the security guards convinced me to eat there. I got there at 7:20. There were two other people there. I should have read that as a sign. I was told the tandoor chicle is VERY popular so had it....I can make a better chicken on the braai (BBQ). ... everyone was so nice but it was one the most disappointing meals I had in Uganda.

The staff is very helpful and the food is good. The location is close to many beach bars, and five minute walk away from the Vctoria mall. The Botanical Garden is also close by, you can do boat trips or even visit Ngamba Island and see a lot if chimpanses.

Had 2 nights in Entebbe at the end of a trip around Uganda. We didn’t stay in the hotel, but we just happened across the restaurant, after doing a search for Indian food in the area. Oh my gosh. One of the best curries I’ve ever had. And a good price. The owner, Raul was awesome and a great host. We liked it so much that we went back the next day. Although we didn’t stay there, we checked out the rooms, and they are great. We are planning on staying there in a few weeks time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...
