We ate here twice due to the large selection of food choices and atmosphere. Live music on one of the nights was a bonus. Good service.

Had a business breakfast at the Bistro and was hooked. Kept going back there for my meals throughout my stay in Kampala. Cool ambience, warm and friendly staff and tasty food. What more can you ask for?

Our lunch at The Bistro featured Thai chicken flatbread, Greek salad and a warm couscous salad with Halloumi. There were many food options for everyone. The menu is reasonable and the service was very timely. I’d recommend.
