Dropped in for a brunch while out shopping and touring the city. Excellent food, the bubbles given to us however was terribly sweet. Excellent that these guys donate to Hospice Uganda from their water sales

I got a warm welcome from the Manager and waiters. Ordered the Tilapia Papilotte which came with rice and a freshly-squeezed apple-passionfruit-orange juice. The food was excellent and the portions big. I asked for a take-home package and got it for an extra 1000 Ugx....More

This has to be one of the BEST restaurants in Kampala! From decor to ambiance, through to food and service! Nothing to be faulted. And hey, guess what? The manager is constantly visible! No surprise then, that The Bistro is so highly rated! Well done,...More

I had a nice coffee morning at this place a couple of times and a working lunch too. The coffee is always great. Staff are very friendly too. The salmon is good.

We enjoyed a lovely brunch with a glass of bubbly after some great shopping on Bukoto St at Kampala Fair, Good Glass and Kona.

great food, but the fact that a busy parking lot is right outside across from the mall means that it is convenient but it is noisy. However, the butternut squash salad is delicious, and the drink that has pineapple, chili pepper, and mint in it...More

If you crave a burger in Kampala, this is the place. We had a lunch here, everyone had a burger (different ones), and everyone was happy. Portions were big, even for men. Their menu has also other nice things, and prices are reasonable.

Nicely decorated bistro/bar with live music on some evenings. Good drinks and food. The friendly managers will help to make a selection from the menu. I liked the tapas and pork chops.

They called it a classic, but it was very finely ground beef (too fine for my texture) with herbs and seasoning. It was good, nice salad and fries/chips.
