This is welcoming place well hidden behind the Club X5 in Entebbe. Nice upper floor outside terrace is nice place to have a lunch or dinner. Staff is friendly and chef at this place is experienced and well educated. Only place so far in Uganda that you get your stake exactly as you order it. Starters are good, prices are... More

I was so looking forward to this place: I read on tripadvisor that they actually have good wine options by the glass, and I've been suffering nasty boxed wine (with the options being "dry" or "sweet", but both always horrible) throughout my time in Kampala during various visits. When I arrived at 9pm on a Saturday evening, the gate was... More

I have tasted pork from different restaurants in Uganda I am yet to find one like that of Ongi Ettorri. The next you are in Entebbe pass by and taste it. You will not believe that such food is in Uganda.

I remember seeing this place on TA my first time to Entebbe but never searched for it. It is tucked away behind the casino that's behind the market off the main road. Oh I wish I found it then but am so glad to have finally gone, and then again and again. No comparison, this is the best (only) gourmet... More

I had taken some time without visiting Entebbe. I went to my usual places. I must admit that Ongi Etorri still provides the best food in Entebbe. I was a hot day when we arrived but the place was so cool. It such a nice place to be.

I have been to Ongi Etorri a number of times. The food remains the best in Entebbe. Now they have added coffee. I had a cappuccino and it was well made. The ambience remains the best for those who are looking for a quiet and natural place to relax in Kandari

This was my first time in Uganda. When the travel agent lead to this restaurant, I quietly said my prayers. A section of the road is not good. When we reached the place I was blown away by the natural setting. We were well received by Leticia. The food that followed was the best I tasted throughout my trip. We... More
