Went on a Friday night with friends for a birthday celebration. We heard the music was really good and was looking forward to going. The decor inside was very well done. Unfortunately we were really squashed into the pre-booked area and you couldn't even move from your seat. Literally the seats behind us were touching ours. The food takes a... More

I was taken here by my Ugandan colleagues, but I noticed many tables with what appeared to be tourists, so this is a popular place with locals and visitors. The menu was basic—grilled meats and fries, and my meal (skewers of grilled beef) was tasty and cooked properly. The band that night was a full "jazz" band, with 4 singers.... More

I have always loved the African buffet at Jazzville. Very filing and the dishes are simple and well made - from Ugali to Chapati and Chicken, matoke, groundnut sauce and the sometimes goat stew, it goes straight to the heart. Furthermore, it's very affordable and quiet at lunch which allows for great business meetings. The staff is friendly and courteous... More

A wonderful first introduction to Kampala's quality and thriving supper club, jazz scene and entertainment industry that is like no other. Truly African but with a character and class of its own. Jazzville offers an 'all in one experience' of light dining, great service, superb non stop jazz music and also an opportunity to show your moves if you so... More

The service is good and the design of the reataurant is fine. Book a table and you will be seated near the stage. Come before 8 pm. Then you have time to eat before the music starts at 9 pm. There are plenty of drinks and the food is good. But the best is the joy for music that the... More

Went for the music, which was just as well as the food was disappointing. I made the mistake of having the Barbeque from outside - don't! Group vote: yes, we'd return but not for the food.

One of my favourite Friday night spots. Listening to the band with friends and eating good food. The cocktails are great too. Service is reasonable considering how busy it gets although it is worth booking a table in advance or turn up early otherwise you can struggle to get seats.

Went there on 26th September, Saturday night for drinks & music. We wanted to listen to some live music & our hotel recommended Jazzville. The cocktails priced around $5 were good but the music was really top notch. The place is geared for good music with a nice sized stage & good acoustics. Even the decor is all about music.... More

We spent our last night in Kampala at Jazzville and we couldn't have had a better send of. We ate the bbq which was lovely and gave us the energy to dance into the early hours to the amazing band
