Went here off a local expat's recommendation and was underwhelmed. Large portions of decent food, but service was lacking. Nice enough and seemed to start well with the waitress getting our orders quickly, but down hill after that. The staff disappeared once we received our drinks. Starters came out 45 mins after ordering (typical). We had to set our table... More

Nice staff and good accommodation. The service was very good and the food was ok. It was relaxing but slightly over priced.

The food is good, the tables are in the middle of a garden, so at night there are a lot of mosquitoes. It also gets a little dark, if you are not used to candle light (in Uganda electricity is scarce, so many places use candle light at night).

The atmosphere was good outside the restaurant. I and my friends spent 30-40 minutes for dinner and it was nice.

This a great accommodation and eat out place. While in Jinja ask no further, simply the rooms are very good, the food is great all at an affordable price.

We usually end up eating here when we pass through Jinja. Lovely restaurant. Beautifully decorated. Nice food. Staff were attentive. Though it was relatively empty when we last went, which was sad.

I've been in jinja for a couple of months and normally like gately as the food is good. However last night we had a horrendous experience. I went with a group of friends and when the bill came we realised we had been over charged by 4 shots of gin, amounting to 24 000. I pointed this out to the... More

The rooms in the hotel itself are beautiful. The cottages are a bit more "rustic" and not as clean. Very steep stairs in the cottages, but the view of the Nile are worth the climb.
