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 is the best you'll find in town!

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.

This really is a lovely place. Seating is in a tucked away terrace, and the vines will block the view to the parking lot. Very enjoyable lunch with a good glass of wine, and a seafood ravioli from the specials menu. Good service.

I loved the Thursday live band, was there once and was impressed. The service was also good and so was the ambiance.

This was a the second time visiting Kisementi area in a period of less than 60 days and i have to say The Bistro was amazing. The staff were attentive and helpful. From the moment we walked in the restaurant, there was someone to guide us on where to sit, to selection of the meals to wine selection. The price... More
