Small but excellent restaurant with a good range of dishes and a specials board. Milkshakes and pizzas are a must! The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. We stayed in the adjoining Urban Cityblue hotel which is a little oasis of calm.

Consistently delicious breakfasts, the suppers are all good, especially the pizzas when you are hungry and tired.

Didn't get value for money spent. Pizza was not tasty at all. Asked for icecream and was only given one small spoon dipped in amarula.

the wine was good and the prices fair but thats about it. I expected alot more because the old cafe mamba was so excellent. the food was extremely underwhelming and took ages to arrive. i was celebrating my birthday with family and we all had a lousy experience.

We visited here after a busy day working in Kampala. It was the perfect escape from the city noise for us. The good was lovely especially the fondue for desert.

The ambiance is great for solitude in the heart of the city... they have the best pizza in town but the food is a bit too bland. We tried the pork ribs and nearly asked to pay 50% of the bill just because the food wasnt worth it. Spoke to the manager and he said they were bringing a new... More

We were looking forward to good Italian/Mediterranean food but were disappointed. It was just "okay" and with very slow service. "Feta" cheese was not really Feta, etc. Pleasant surroundings (but beware of mosquitoes).
