The restaurant serving European food is truly terrible.The service is slow, even by Ugandan standards. And when it finally arrives the food is poor, and often inedible. They struggle to fry an egg and the sandwiches and burgers are dreadful. This would be OK if it was cheap, but it is not; they charge as much as the Sheraton across the road. But the Indian restaurant is a welcome contrast. Service is fast and professional and the food is delicious and good value.
You should avoid the Speke on Friday and Saturday, unless you don't mind being hassled by the prostitutes who gather here in search of gullible - and suicidal - tourists. There's also a bar next to the Speke which plays music on Friday and Saturday so loudly that you risk permanent damage to your hearing.
