I have been here many times before and the food/service is fine sometimes and just OK other times. I'm usually pretty satisfied. My poor rating is simply because they have added a quartet playing live music - a nice touch - except that they play it so loud you can't hear your date across the table. The waitress asked them...

Entertained ten old business friends and my wife. I was really surprised how good the steaks were - I have been living in New York the last ten years - these were as good as Smith & Wollensky, Sparks, Palm etc. French fries and vegetables all perfectly cooked Ambiance is fairly basic but this is Uganda. Excellent value

My second visit to this restaurant wasn't as good as the first time. Sure, the ambience is still good, lighting and music but when it comes to the menu, it can be so limited and what's on it not as good. I had wanted to have either mushroom or pumpkin soup but they didn't have either. I decided to have... More

I am a Ugandan local and one time I arrived at the restaurant, there were about only two or three tables occupied. I sat down at one table (Note: restaurant has waiters to meet and greet clients on their way in). No waiter/host approached me, even after sitting down for 15 minutes while clearly the restaurant was not busy. There... More

"Loud" name with no reason. Menu has a prices exclusive service and tax. Portions are very very small. One of the worst steaks I ever tried. Overpriced, poor knowledge of kitchen chemistry, especially concerning the meat preparation. Sorry guys I wouldn't give you a second chance.

Group of 5 went for dinner. I don't think any of us would go back. They didn't have the food we went for (croquettes); the food was just ok. It was pricey for what we got (which I haven't felt in other similar scale restaurants). The decor wasn't as nice as we had anticipated - others in Kampala we found... More

Very quiet, relaxed, nice ambience. The lighting at night is romantic. Clean toilets, good service, and good food. For dessert, they have cheese cake that's to die for.

Food was excellent. Must try the chicken lollypops with chips and the fish nuggets with rice and mushroom sauce.

On every visit to Uganda I've always wanted to try this restaurant so decided to book a table. That was my first problem; the restaurant has no website and it's very difficult to get hold of its phone number. I searched Google and found a landline number. It was dead. I then ended up on Facebook where I found a... More
