a place to watch the African sunset


Crocodile café and bar is one of Uganda's top continental restaurants. Located on Plot 21 Cooper Road at Kisimenti Kololo, it was opened in 1996 as a small café, by two people who like to cook. They wanted to offer the nearby residents a place to have a snack and enjoy the tropical sunset.

It has since grown into a trendy restaurant, in the bustling Kampala city suburb and is patronized by a cosmopolitan clientele. Banks, supermarkets, craft shops, and pharmacies have now sprung up around the area.

According to the Managing Director, Mrs Nyakairu, good service and knowing the clientele's taste is the real story behind the success of her enterprise. She keeps her restaurant dynamic adding new ideas to the menu every year, some of which she captures when she travels.

The restaurant is set in a serene setting. You can either enjoy your meal in the main dinning area or on the terrace. There is no hassle of finding a parking slot due to the wide, free, secure parking available.

Future plans are to open an extension where people who want to grab a meal while they work can sit. Its old customers are still coming back to enjoy a good meal and shop in the neighbouring shops.
