As a regular visitor to Juba since 2009 I would suggest that anyone that finds themselves in Juba takes the time to enjoy a great meal at Da Vinci. This restaurant has been a favorite for for local for years and without doubt the quality of its food and service are always what one would expect from what some consider... More

The food is good, drinks and beer are ok, the best thing is the terrace in the Nile river. Maybe a little expensive, but you know, Juba is really an expensive city...

Sunday lunch at the Nile...certainly a nice place to be. A nice view on the river, a liitle breeze, tables in the shade and some in the sun and live music but not too loud. Our waiter was very attentive, the fresh fruit juices nice and the food ok. Prices are normal.

Located on the bank of the river Nile, Da Vinci Lodge has a quiet unique view. The food is okay but not very imaginative.

Picturesque spot along the Nile just below the Juba Bridge. Get a spot under the trees, have a drink and share a meal with family or co-workers. Laid back but attentive staff. Excellent fruit drinks and better than average coffee. It's an NGO / UN / Mission hang-out (just count the White Land Cruisers in the parking area), but the... More

A lovely location alongside the Nile with plenty of local activity in the water (but you cannot take photographs). Seems a little heavy handed with the local security guards wandering around and they could be more discreet. The buffet food is good value for South Sudan (ie pricey) but the quality is good and variety also good. Be warned that... More

Perfect place to enjoy a relaxing weekend lunch along the Nile,. Atmosphere and venue in open air are perfect. Quality of the restaurant is medium although prices are of the highest in Juba.Nice music band on Friday.

We had a very pleasant afternoon at this restaurant that sits along and has a great view of the Nile. Ethiopian coffee, and a nice menu. Shady trees to escape the hot Juba sun. I can see why it is one of the most popular spots in Juba.

Thank wcrp
