Nice setting in suburban Kampala but the food was average and the service wasn't much better. Can't complain about the price but would happily pay a bit more for an improved experience.

Used to love this place, but put off when car broken into while their guard was taking care of it, Also, the service is just sooooo bad. Can take an hour or more to get your meal, and usually only one person in the group...More

Worst burger I have ever had. ☹️👎. I really wonder how reviewers rate this restaurant good. I think they came from the moon. Besides terrible service. Very slow. Don't order burger. It is something else. But definitely not a burger. Though tomato soup is good.

If you're in the area and looking for dinner it's a decent spot. Not something that you would drive from town for though. If I'm already on this side of town during lunch or dinner, it's my go to spot.

One of my best meals, if not the best, after a year and a half of living in Uganda! The garlic sauce is amazing! The pizza is perfection and the mushroom risotto is top quality. It's also very clean and a relaxing, romantic atmosphere.

The food and drinks are good and the service is acceptable but the restaurant does take a pounding from the open bar and the loud pop music. I don't think they can decide whether they want to be a bar or a restaurant. Good place...More
