The Pearl of Africa, the epitome of fine dining

carte restaurant blends stark black granite with opalescent marble to create a timeless ‘silver screen’ backdrop for the restaurant’s world-class cuisine.

Uganda’s ‘Explorers’ remembered

Relaxed, welcoming and uniquely themed, the ‘Explorer’ Italian bistro offers an offbeat tribute

to Africa’s early explorers by replicating a jungle-engulfed ruined city, reminiscent of a scene from ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’. Menu choices include the very best of traditional Italian cuisine.

Lakes Restaurant

Designed to suggest the watery depths of a lake, where mosaic fishes dart, weeds shimmer, and faint rays of sunlight filter down from above, the spacious 24-hour ‘The Lakes’ looks out over the water gardens and offers all-day terrace and inside dining options. The menu, superbly ‘a la carte’, or abundantly ‘buffet’, is an inspirational mix of national, regional and international cuisine.

The Cuisine

The Kampala Serena Hotel’s menus are carefully designed to reflect the best of Ugandan produce and the most enduring of her cultural traditions. They will also reflect the international influences that have been brought to bear on the country, and the truly global nature of the hotel’s clientele.
