“Great get away spot”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I just loved this place. Tucked into a small shopping area it is a little haven in Kampala. The food is wonderful, the drinks are good and the service is fantastic. So much better than the new crowded spots in the mall across the way. If you want to feel like you're out of the city this is a great spot to go.

“My favourite Kampala restaurant”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

The Bistro is, hands-down, my favourite restaurant in Kampala! You get the vibe right from the doorstep. The ambience was expertly thought out, creating a cool, relaxed, warm atmosphere.
It is evident, from my experience in other eateries, that the management at The Bistro has taken a deliberate decision to train it's floor staff adequately. Meal orders are usually timely and staff very polite & professional.
Even with all these pluses, I go there to, bottomline, EAT!...and isn't the food just delightful! Whatever your palate desires, The Bistro kitchen staff will not let you down. And at the end of the day, when you have fed & drunk to your satisfaction, the bill is not bad at all. In fact, for it's standard, The Bistro is particularly affordable.
Enough said.... I Love It!

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The service was excellent, efficient but not too much. We got our food pretty quickly, the portions were generous and very well cooked. We were four at dinner, we all took different dishes and we were all satisified with our choices.
