A nice setting with a half undercover space and decent parking. An ambitious menu; it may be best to play safe when choosing. I had a decent pizza, and service, for .kampala, was good on a quiet Saturday lunch. Some of the larger dishes are probably best left to the evening when you have more of an appetite.

Mediterraneo is a lovely place - great decor, slightly moody lighting, wonderful furniture and great ambience.

On a good day the service can be great and the food is good (not great, but good).

However, I would say about 50% of the time the service can be exceptionally slow. On busy nights there are not enough staff, and it is a very popular restaurant. Having to wait 10 minutes for water after you have asked twice can take up all your attention and leave you frustrated. That can obviously ruin your dining experience, no matter how lovely the restaurant is.

The food is good, and on a good night the service can be great, but the inconsistency of the restaurant is a real let down. Your dining experience can be a bit of a gamble.

I would recommend not eating there on Thursday, Friday and Saturday when it is bound to be very busy.

This is probably the most delightful restaurant in Kampala. The atmosphere is lovely, the waiters are excellent and the food is delicious. I fail to understand some of the bitter comments made by other reviewers--are they competitors trying to denigrate what is a terrific addition to dining in Kampala? It is always possible to have a bad experience at a restaurant but for maintaining high standards in all respects, week in, week out this place deserves to be commended. If you are going out for dinner or lunch then the Mediterraneo should be your first choice.

The owners are lucky that Kampala is stuffed full of expats / diplomats / UN workers on fat expense accounts and others with pockets full of 'black market' cash! An ok to middling restaurant is what this is. Better food and value to be found on many street corners in Europe! However, the main point to come here is the super staff who are courteous and welcoming. have eaten twice at dinner time, once with an overseas guest and on both occasions barely made it through a third of the offering before deciding a sandwich at home would suffice. Owners, pull your socks up... on second thoughts you don't need to as the lemmings will continue to fall through the door.

They have good hospitality,
The waiters are so smart, serve in time, what ever type of dish you desire is a variable to suit your a petite even the price is fair to the locals and foreigners.
