“Lovely spot for food or drinks”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

As the name suggests, the Lawns features a beautiful lawn seating area complete with bunnies! We've eaten there many times and have never had a bad meal. The service is very professional, some of the best in Kampala.

“Dinner was Wonderful”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Had Dinner at the Lawns in Kololo last night - great food, wonderfully attentive service and the environment was a fantastic - promoting outdoor eating and good food.

Would definitely come back here for dinner again - highly recommended if you want to eat exotic, crocodile and other game meats - well worth dinner here.

“Nice setting, probably better for tourists than Africa residents”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Perhaps because I live in Africa, I was not quite as impressed as others from Europe and North America who have reviewed this restaurant. Eating wild game is not a huge attraction for me, and other offerings are limited. The setting is indeed lovely, but I found the tables rather too large for a good conversation for a few people.

“The Lawns, an Oasis in Kampala, expansive outdoor & indoor seating”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

A magnificent Green space with long loungers, tables and umbrellas for drinks and lunch and dinners. We ate up on the covered veranda with a nice breeze and excellent hot lunch of fresh tillapia filets, and an array veggies from which to choose. The expansive menu included salads or soups with your entree and many goodies afterwards. Fresh sqeezed passion fruit juice was our choice from the extensive drink menu. Service was both friendly and informative. All four of us chose something different, and all items came quickly and were really perfect in everyway. Would recommend this to all palates but especially nice for a family get together or celebration such as a wedding or birthday party. We did not check out the dinner menu or whether there was live music but I would expect that with this huge private property that there would be musical evenings. This restraunt is in the popular upscale international district of Kalolo in Kampala..

“Good food, great service”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Good ambiance. Great food. Excellent service. For a restaurant of this class, the quality of knives is very poor.
