Very good pizza, price is reasonable. Laid back atmosphere. However even better you can buy a good Gouda and mozzarella. Don't miss the deli section of this restaurant. It is great.

Well run, modern. The rooms are quite big, with wc separated from shower, which is a brilliant idea when sharing a room. Safe deposit box and hairdryer. Good food available.

By far the best food you can find in Uganda. Plenty of choice, also when you're vegetarian or vegan. Great menu! Good coffee, nice garden and helpfull staff. Loved this place.

Not so many choices in FP, and this is nice. Not excellent but a nice place. Be sure to ask if they have what you order. One of our orders was incomplete, but they fixed it by going to the market for us....

Dutchess restaurant combines the fresh products Fort Portal has to offer with home made dairy. Our excellent international cuisine serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are a trendsetter in Fort Portal. The first to make real pizza, cappuccino, home made ice cream, crocodile meat, porterhouse steak. We will continue to innovate.

You can enjoy the food outside in the luscious garden, on the covered terrace or in the lounge. On cold days you can sit next to a warm and cosy fireplace in the restaurant.

The garden is visited by many birds. You can see the Great blue Turaco, Ross' Toraco, sunbirds, African Harrier Hawk and many others.

Even in the garden Wifi is available.
