“Best in Kampala when it wants to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

6 of us for a fine class dinner. 3 had steak, 1 had quail and 2 fish. Relaxed ambience sitting al fresco in the open air. Service a bit slow and the waiter was confused. We had to explain to him a few times what we wanted. They could do with upgrading the quality of the waiting staff I think.
But the food, superb. The steaks were agreed by all as possibly among the best they had ever had. Fillet, not an ounce of grissle or fat, beautifully cooked in a peppercorn sauce. Tender and melt in your mouth. Excellent choice, and deserts also.
The restaurant is well situated in a complex on the Gaaba Rd just along from the US Embassy, easy parking and good security. With the added bonus of a patisserie next door and the best butcher in Kampala on site too.

Train up your waiting staff to better serve the expat community that has higher expectations.

“Not what it was”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

La Chateau used to be a busy and excellent restaurant with great service, but sadly these days the same can't be said. We stopped by for lunch despite our reservations having been disappointed previously, and were served a bland salad by a friendly waitress. We won't be returning any time soon.

“Too pricey... ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Food is good but you are pricing yourself out of the market. Prices seem to go up every time we have a meal there and every time you actually see more empty tables. I hope they get the hint, reduce their prices and draw back loyal customers. This restaurant is no longer the only decent eating destination on this side of Kampala....

“a heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

The village is located in the middle of busy downtown Kampala: large, spacious and wonderfull. You would never expect this: combination of a hotel, a restaurant, a boucherie, a bakery.

So proud to be Belgian here!!
