Plot 99 has a good selection of food and drinks and is located on a beautiful garden with a great view overlooking Masaka. I had my best latte in Uganda here and some yummy meals too. Very comfortable to dine inside or outside and you can easily do some work here or sit comfortably with friends for a meal. Thank-you!!... More

Loved every minute in Plot 99. Great service excellent food. My favourite is the mango-advocado-tomato salade and of course Belgian fries with special or tartar or garlic mmmmm.

I came to Plot 99 twice during my stay in Masaka. The staff were really welcoming - Rose was fantastic! There's a great selection of food from different cuisines. You can choose to sit inside or in the outside seating area, which has a stunning view (highly recommend). Good Wifi access. Would definitely come here again.

It's hard to explain just how wonderful this place is! The atmosphere is relaxing a serene, the food is delicious and the staff is amazing... this place is a true gem. An absolute must-see if you are visiting or staying in Masaka. They also make the best chocolate banana bread I've ever had! Go, go go!

This is the best places to eat for 'mzungu' or western food. As an expat who lived in Masaka for six months it was lovely to have food that were comforts of home every once in awhile. The staff are prompt and helpful and the food is delicious and healthy! Lenke, the owner, is very warm and accommodating to guests.... More

Plot 99 has a wonderful bird's eye view of Masaka town where many expats gather to hang out and enjoy the food, free wifi, and nice breeze. It is very child-friendly and has a big swing in the back yard. I came here almost everyday after work over the summer. Every staff member treated me like family and I enjoyed... More

Hi Shelby, thanks for this great review, we appreciate (as Emma would say :) ). Good to mention bookings for the gym, as indeed it can be quite popular, especially since it is even less than $2 instead of 5 per go! ;) Hope to see you once again next year! More

Burgers, Pizza, Chicken... It was all hot and tasty. We were a large group so service was a little slow but we were on holidays so who needs to rush?

The highlight of our visit was the cappuccino with cake. The rest was very uninspired and overpriced: tiny portion of chips for 8000, small/very ordinary salad at 11000 (coleslaw with maize, feta cheese and mayonnaise), all dips based on mayonnaise from a tin, mashed avocado called guacamole, ...

Dear Christine, Thank you for loving our cappuccino and cake. Too bad you didnt like the salad or even think it is uninspired. I hope you dont compare us with all the great restaurants in Kampala. All our customers are very happy with our salads, as it is a welcome break from village food (uninspiring beans and posho every day).... More

Great place to chill out. Very welcoming, good food, drink, what's more to say. Seems to be the local for the muzungus. Good coffee too. Well worth a visit.

Dear magicShropshire, Its what you said: what more do you need than good food and drinks? Especially our famous coffee makes up for a week in the village! It seem we are also becoming the local hotspot for Ugandans, as they love our pizza's and free wifi. See you again and thanks for the good review! More
