This place is fantastic. When you walk into the restaurant it's like you walk into a different world, you can easily forget that you're in Kampala when you're having dinner at Il Patio. The food is really good, and waiters are professional. If you go there, please try the chocolate cake for desert, it's the best I've ever had. Melted... More

Very refined dining. Very rich menu with loads of choices. Service may be a tard slow but it's worth the wait when it's delivered! The ambiance is generally calm and surreal.
