La fontaine is a very nice, small restaurant, very close to the mall in Kololo. The food is fresh and good and the prices are absolutely fine. Everything is well maintained, clean and the service is very good. We've been there a couple of times during our stay in Kampala.

Prices are great, one of the best value places to eat in Kampala, service can be a little slow but staff are friendly and eager to help.

Went there once for coffee and once for brunch. The brunch was good, but the coffee press was not - filter was a bit broken so the powder mixed with the coffee. Was hoping to taste those heavenly biscuits, but didn't get more than just a coffee.

I eat here more than anywhere else. It has a little for everybody. Buffet for corporates. A la carte menu that is on the fair price end and has great fish. Generally good customer service though can be slow sometimes.

If you looking for a chic venue to dine at...this is definitely not the place for you. The food is great but the service is miserable. Timed it and it took about 1hr20 for our order to come in...45 minute for the bill. Thank God for the great food, there wouldnt be much else to write about.

It's not your typical classy sort of Ambiance, but that translates into very affordable prices. Had the Dinner Steak which was quite good and almost half the price compared to many restaurants. The cookies served with the coffee were to die for. Unfortunately they were not on sale.. I wish they were.

If you don't mind a little less ambiance but want really good food at much lower cost than the restaurants in Kisementi, go just down the hill to La Fontaine. Gracious management and waitstaff. Great chicken and fish dishes. I went twice in as many days.

Good food here on a fairly basic menu. The ambiance is friendly and welcoming and the prices are a lot less than the cafe in the nearby Acacia.. The only downside is that the service can be variable - depending (I suspect) on who is working that day and car parking is limited and best done in the nearby Acacia... More

For the price, they actually have good food. It may take forever to come [It always does in our case] but on the whole it is a good well made home meal. The prices for the surroundings [Kisimenti Area] are on the low side. Plus their beers are cheap. [that s why my journalist friends always insist we always meet... More
