“Restaurant at Hotel Tilapia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food was mediocre. The chicken was dry and tasteless. The drinks were good. The view from the restaurants, patio and bar was lovely any time of day or night -- Lake Victoria.

“decent food but they changed the price when we paid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

I took a group of 33 people to this restaurant and set up the entire menu for the buffet 3 days prior as well as agreed on the cost in writing. When it came time to pay, the same manager changed what we agreed on. When I showed him the document we both signed, he said that he forgot something and would not deliver the agreed upon terms. The food was pretty good, but i will never return because I do not do well with liars.

“Small rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

The rooms are all very small and a total mix-match, old, outdated and actually terrible. I visited twice and had a good look around. The Boat that is also used as accommodxation is in principle a good idea but it is also about to sink........really a shame, as this hotel could be much better. The only nic e part is the viby Bar, but the food is s0-so and the servcie is very slow........I waited for over 1 hr for my main course......pasta does not tkae tnhat long to cook!!!!!
