I believe I and my wife were among the first customers of Ongi Etorri. We were pleasantly surprised! The food if of international standard, their customer care is excellent. We had a great time there. Their prices are friendly too.

I strongly recommend that you pay them a visit. You will not regret it!

I got the directions to the restaurant from a friend but wondered if I had gotten them wrong as the path/road seemed to be taking me off the beaten path. However, after a 100m or so the white walls and European atmosphere of the restaurant came into view.
I talked to the staff and the restaurant only recently opened, as was evidenced by several projects still under work next to the dining area. That said; the dining area had a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly.
I wasn't hungry enough for a 3 course meal, so only had an entree. I had the beef bourguignon, which was the best I have ever had. The meat was very tender, juicy, and the wine sauce was perfectly flavored. The accompanying vegetables were al dente - just the right amount of crunchiness.
I didn't have any wine but did notice that the wine list is very good with very reasonable prices for Entebbe. The menu isn't hugh but has a good selection of French & Spanish/Mediterranean dishes.
I would definitely this restaurant to anyone visiting, or staying, in Entebbe.

Dear Brian,

Ongi Etorri is glad that you liked our place and our cuisine.
It makes our staff proud and it will give them more motivation to provide you higher customer care.
Regarding the direction issue, we are working on placing sign posts by the main road so it will be much easier for our clients to find us and enjoy our quiet restaurant like you did..
talking about our other projects, we can already tell you that we are starting to build the Grass hatch project by the restaurant...
I guess our Beef Bourguignon will be one of the top of our dishes but you will try and enjoy other of our dishes and we are pretty sure that you will like them as much as what you had last time.
We make sure that our wine prices are not too high so it will encourage our clients to get a bottle of wine when they have our nice tasty dishes.
Isn't it French to have wine when dining ?
We will be happy to see you again anytime with your friends.
Regards,

Richard Vessot

we were looking for a place to get nice food , and european for a change, and got a flyer in town about this new place just out of town and near the lake.
What a surprise, discovering it was managed by a very friendly frenchman, and the food was just great, had an amazin fresh fish cooked south west french/spanish way, and a beautiful french style chocolate mousse for dessert, just what we needed.
Great selection of wine as well (little wine shop on the side), try their cabernet...

all in all great place, great time, friendly staff and great food, we recommend it
go there blindfolded
