Lovely garden setting with really friendly, helpful servers. Blown away by the menu! Wow! We had fillet and pork ribs, both meals were perfectly prepared and scrumptious. Banana flambe and the chocolate mousse steered us away from the very impressive ice cream menu. Will have to go back to try some of them. Very good value for money.

Nice setting with little pavilions in a lush garden. The French menu looks great, but the taste is rather average. Had better food in Kampala.

L'Epicurien is a french restaurant that i bumped into one these boring holiday season days. its neighboring the famous Atmosphere bar. The gardens are designed french style and the sitting arrangement oozes romance only..( my next big date must go down there) Anyway i went straight to the counter and the smiling barman welcomed me, He is called Francis, very lively person. We hit it off immediately and i told him about my day and instantly he recommended a cocktail that would give me back life after feeling bored and life moving slow. This had been brought about by the loneliness brought about by almost all my friends heading out of town for upcountry Christmas celebrations. i cant lie that i remember the cocktail because the result was a fun filled evening with several other people who later become friends.

i was forced to come back the next day and eat there food. the french names of the foods are not in my memory right now but the i can try to explain the taste.. its mouth watering. new taste in mouth i have not felt before. All i can i say is the chef will be at your disposal once you request to be guided with the french food if you've not been to Paris like me.

For our first night in Kampala friends took us to L'Epicurien what an excellent choice. Exquisite garden, first class service, a varied and interesting menu and a good wine list. Try the duck with passion fruit or the goat stew with peanut sauce delicious! Well worth a trip.

This restaurant seems to be succeeding in a location where so many others have failed. The prix fixe lunch is a welcome addition to the kololo options, offering well-executed French classics with a sensibility for local produce, at reasonable prices. Service is attentive and polite.
