For a location offering all three main meals there is no better place in Fort Portal. Their breakfast is undoubtedly the best in town and the variety they offer for dinner, especially their seasonal specials ensures that one is not always eating the same thing as tends to often happen. They are best known for their pizzas but given their... More

Dutchess has a consistently excellent menu, friendly and welcoming staff and a lovely atmosphere to sit and relax or work in. It is deservedly one of the busiest restaurants in town. And they do delivery too!

The Dutchess is a great little restaurant close to the center of Fort Portal. The food is excellent and ranges from thin crust pizza cooked in a wood oven and a range of gourmet treats.

After spending several weeks serving at our orphanage near the Congo border, our team always looks forward to coming to Fort Portal and enjoying a meal at Dutchess Restaurant. The menu includes a lot of choices, the prices are good, and the food is outstanding.

Definitely one of the better places outside Kampala and better than similar places in Masaka for example. Nothing out of the ordinary, but overall a nice dining/lunch experience.

Neat pizza oven, but like so many Ugandan restaurants, time to offer some National cuisine with local produce

Heleen M, Owner at Dutchess, responded to this review

Simon, I am sorry you did not like our menu. Everything prepared in the kitchen except olives and mushrooms is fresh and locally sourced (even the farmed crocodile meat). We are very proud to make almost everything ourselves. Due to the extensiveness of the menu you might have overlocked our Uganda dishes Omukaro (smoked beef in ghee with kalo, sweet... More

Description
Dutchess restaurant combines the fresh products Fort Portal has to offer with home made dairy. Our excellent international cuisine serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are a trendsetter in Fort Portal. The first to make real pizza, cappuccino, home made ice cream, crocodile meat, porterhouse steak. We will continue to innovate.

You can enjoy the food outside in the luscious garden, on the covered terrace or in the lounge. On cold days you can sit next to a warm and cosy fireplace in the restaurant.

The garden is visited by many birds. You can see the Great blue Turaco, Ross' Toraco, sunbirds, African Harrier Hawk and many others.

Even in the garden Wifi is available.
