Went to the rooftop bar recently and was hugely disappointed after not having been there for about 2 years. The location of the bar and its views are great but the current furniture/decoration/roofing destroy the atmosphere the place once had. I had a cocktail which was really poor in quality. Not going back for a while.

Pasteries were nothing special. Also, the coffee was just ok. There are much better, lower priced coffee places around. However, the location is nice with a couple of nice shops in the same court.

The food was decent, the location was decent, the price was a little more than quality. But overall, I probably wouldn't just go back to go back but I wouldn't be mad if someone invited me to go.

The setting is great overlooking lush gardens and the quiet side of town. All the other customers were at the rooftop terrace so we had really quiet and peaceful dinner in the other building. The service was fine and food came quite quickly. We felt the portions were quite large but fairly average, e.g. all sauces tasted pretty much the... More

The lovely patio has a very nice view of the city and service is quite ok. The vegetarian dishes are very reasonably priced, the meat dishes are a tad pricey, but not horribly so. Drinks are very reasonably priced, though the cocktails tend to be a bit expensive. Our party of three had two steaks and pork chops. The steaks... More

Living in Kampala just got better with the opening of La Petite France Restaurant. We had read about it in Uganda's The Eye Magazine and decided to give it a try on a quiet Sunday afternoon. We started with cocktails under the sails of the rooftop terrace bar (the mango-chilli daiquiri is fabulous) and then proceeded to the open-air dining... More

Sundy afternoon, after 2 prodigious downpours and some DIY at the house, I was looking for a "good meal". I ordered Steak Tartare, it was delicious, beautifully pre-prepared. I followed with pan fried fillet steak cooked "bleu", amongst the best pieces of steak I have eaten and the Bernaise sauce was near perfect. Beans cooked beautifully, not "sodden", chips were...

I really liked this restaurant. It was not too many people there this Wednesday evening, in fact I was the first to arrive. The waiters were eager to please, but also gave room for me enjoying the view and the warmth of the Ugandan evening. Next time I will try more of the items from the menu. I am looking... More
