“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

This is an excellent French Bistro located near the US Embassy on one of the main roads in Kampala. I have been here multiple times and I am never disappointed. The food is great and the staff is very attentive. Don't miss out on excellent French cuisine the next time you are in Kampala and head to Le Petit.

“Great experiance”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

After getting turned down at Le Chateau, we ended up here. A bit qurious how the service and the food would be.
We had a fantastic experiance; the owner Stella came and greeted us and served us wine...they only have one kind... so we where a bit sceptic.. but it was great..My wife ordered lamb chops and Ime the steak Diana. Bot where just perfectly prepared... The whole dinner was 70,000 with 2 big carafes of wine... CANT BEAT THAT...
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED..

“Good steaks, bad service”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

The meat is really good, the service is poor unless the owner of the place is around. Sometimes you need to ask the waiters if you can please order (while they are sitting and playing with their phone). Anyways, the food is always good! Proper steaks with fries or mashed, it is always good. If you want your steak medium say you want it well done. Their definition of medium is not the same as ours. The salad with a really garlicky dressing is lovely as well. The scenery is not particularly nice but has its charms. There is always something happening on the road and sellers are passing by. Basic furniture and by the looks you wouldn't think the food is as good as it is.
