Excellent lunch or dinner option. Good food, well presented, great value for money, cold wine (always in stock) and a nice location. Customer care is great. You most certainly dont feel like you are in the heart of an 'African city'. The owners do add a special touch to detail.

The food is consistently tasty although the potions are rather small. The customer care is great! I have been there twice and will definitely go back for more........The last time I went there they served the best apple pie I had tasted in a long time.Keep it up!

Bistro opened up in Kisimenti square at the end of 2012, and it was much needed!

There are very few cafe-restaurants that manage to get the atmosphere just right, and can accommodate both types of customers at the same time (coffee lovers, and business lunches) in Kampala.

Bistro serves good quality, simple food: lovely sandwiches, tapas, burgers, fish curries, various snacks and salads. Good coffee, slightly expensive juices, wines, and beer.

The outside seating is set in a lovely Mediterranean-esque patio with vines growing up wrought iron railings, whilst inside there is the option of tables or big comfy.

One of the best bonus' about Bistro - fastest Wifi I have ever found in Kampala. With a few plug sockets around the place for laptops (I have spent many a day out of the office working from here).

The only let down is that they are not open on Sundays, I think it would be the perfect place for brunch and Bloody Marys! (fingers crossed for the future).
