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....

For a location offering all three main meals there is no better place in Fort Portal. Their breakfast is undoubtedly the best in town and the variety they offer for dinner, especially their seasonal specials ensures that one is not always eating the same thing as tends to often happen.

Dutchess has a consistently excellent menu, friendly and welcoming staff and a lovely atmosphere to sit and relax or work in. It is deservedly one of the busiest restaurants in town. And they do delivery too!

The Dutchess is a great little restaurant close to the center of Fort Portal. The food is excellent and ranges from thin crust pizza cooked in a wood oven and a range of gourmet treats.

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.
