Nice ambiance in this place full of young people and backpackers. The food is average and the service is not well organised so avoid going there with too many people if you don't want to wait too long.

Had a steak sandwich here and it's literally the best one I've ever had. Would definitely recommend it. The breakfast is also good. Nice atmosphere and helpful staff

Popped in for a Sunday breakfast, we were surprised at how quiet it was. only one other table arrived after we did. Breakfast was great, hot tea and good eggs. Will definitely be back.

Great food, wonderful ambience and very kind service. With free wifi! Whenever I have some time to spare before having to head to the airport I always stop here for a bite to eat whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner. And now they are offering a free coffee if you show them your flight ticket!

After flying for nearly 20 hours, you want two basic things: a hot shower and a cold beer--in whatever order. But then you also want a bed that doesn't feel like a cement slab, and you want something decent to eat to compensate for all the starchy airline meals. When you have staff that rush out to take your bags... More

One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. They were out of chicken at the restaurant and several drinks. The rooms were hot and muggy and did not have air conditioning. The bathroom is one small room and the shower open so the water from the shower splashes on the toilet and gets the whole entire floor wet.

We had stopped at the Gately Restaurant after our time at the Zoo. The menu reads well and the food is good but I did not feel that there was anything special or unique about the food. I felt the prices were a little high but again it is Entebbe. Clean environment, nice settings but the service needs improvement. We... More

Excellent food on offer with the speciality of the house - Thai Grilled Tilapia with Ginger being a real favourite of mine. As the fish normally is large enough to overflow the plate I dispense with the rice and settle for the fresh pita bread instead. Staff are friendly and polite and insist on clearing away plates, glasses even before... More
