Slightly pricey by local standards Goretti’s relies on its location on the shoreline opposite the Anderita Beach Hotel. We had pizza and beer for lunch. The pizzas were perfectly reasonable but nothing special. The garlic pizza bread was too dry and not very garlicky. Beers at 8000/- were chilled nicely. They took $ for payment at a not brilliant rate (but good they did at all) as annoyingly no credit cards accepted. On another table we saw what was a massive fish that looked impressive. WiFi service was out but that from Anderita Beach just worked. Beware opening hours may be shorter than advertised. We first turned up at 9.30pm one night to find them closed.

I have had meals several times at Goretti's since 2012. Most of the time I had tilapia, prepared differently. The fish is always fresh and other meals have also tasted good. Goretti's is ideal place to have a meal before going to the airport for ones flight. Make sure you have UGX cash to pay the bill The Lake Victoria is constantly eating up space at the shore as seen on the pictures from 2012 and a one from today

We visited yesterday evening (Friday) really happy that we made it on a Friday as we were able to experience the weekly dance performance. The restaurant is a kitchen / bar with all seating outside overlooking the lake. With reference to a really poor review that we saw posted, you are by a lake in Uganda, clearly there are going to be insects. We moved from the lakeside, to up amongst the trees and the lake flies were far fewer and the view of the performance much better. The food was fast and fresh. We loved the pizza, full of flavour, the base was good, great spices and the anchovies were fresh and delicious. The fish and rice was good too, great portion size and reasonably priced. The beer was cold and ice available if you're drinking spirits and mixers. Glasses are actually glass not plastic like you sometiems get at beach places which was great. Our waiter Daniel was really friendly and happy, greeted us with a smile as well as taking our bike riders number so he could call him to arrange our transport back. He kept an eye on us all evening, really good level of service.

I was joking while i was eating a frozen pork chop, dry like shoe sole and served with no sauce and sad chips that the owner have to be a drunken mzungu. And damn i might be right. Canned mushrooms, pizzas that have the cheap cheese on top and a dough that is so sad that even a supermarket pizza would be preferable. Anyway pork chops 45.000 is a high price in Uganda. And 40.000 for a pizza you would expect love or at least an eatable one. All in all just horrible and sad - an owner there just gave up but still overcharge.

Great place, nice food and good service. The lake views are nice for lunch or early evening. There are the lake flies but that’s just a natural occurrence that can’t be helped, so if you want to avoid that don’t go in the evening. The staff are very good dealing with this and make sure lights and candles are off so they aren’t attracted to where you are. We ate in the evening and didn’t get flies land on our food as we just had lights down/out. I think it’s a great place with good atmosphere.

The restaurant is situated right on the lake. This creates a beautiful atmosphere, looking at listening to the water. The food was very good. We ordered grilled tilapia. This is the only restaurant I found in Entebbe where you could select the size of the fish: small, medium or large. I opted for large and it was too much for one person. The fish was delicious, moist with a very flavorful glaze. A few things to keep in mind: the restaurant is more expensive than many we visited in Entebbe. The fish is about 50% more than in other restaurants (I compared the price of the medium fish which is about the size you get everywhere). The lake flies are a pain. Being right on the water, they come in full force. If you are visiting for dinner, you either have to eat in the dark or be prepared to have the flies in your food and drinks. You could eat inside of cause, but it is not very pretty. The restaurant does accepts CASH ONLY.

Rude & not caring one male waiter. They made us pay a glass of plain hot water we asked for after consuming various tea pots,dawa & excellent fish. Watch out for what is on the bill & ask for one always!!!!

W camd here because of the good reviews and ended up really disappointed. The location is beautiful, but food was bland, not well seasoned and low-quality. The pan fried fish was soggy and tasted like mud.. Pizza was maybe done in wood oven but it was not very tasty. And there was a snail in one or portions. They delivered an new portion but there was no discount, which would have been reasonable. Just don’t come here.

I waited more than an hour for a simple pizza, while watching eight uniformed staff standing around doing nothing. Not much happening at the oven area either. When the pizza finally arrived (I threatened to walk out), it was (as others have said) pretty bland and tasteless, with a cardboard crust. I later tried Hinrik next door, and their pizza was better

The pizza was nice, not amazing but it’s great to have a choice of medium or large. The atmosphere is very nice, the tables are under trees full of fairy lights and there are candles on the tables. The waiters are very friendly and service was good.

We came here mid-March. The location is really nice, the service and food are okay. They do not accept credit cards, which is no big deal. We asked in the beginning, if we can pay in USD, since we did not have enough Schilling left. The answer was "yes, no problem". When getting the bill, we were confused by the high $ amount. We also talked to the restaurant manager. His answer was "it's the restaurant exchange rate". There was a difference of $10 to the official exchange rate. We felt fooled. That is why I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

We had a nice pizza and there was entertainment. But …. these flies are really disgusting. And indeed this Belgian owner seems to bully his local staff. And a tip for those complaining about dollar and euro: stop at Victoria mall first to exchange your money.

A good place for pizza and fish. It was a little difficult to find going by Uber. We went at night which meant we missed out on the view of the beach. The service was good and they accommodated us without a table booking. Very tasty pizza and well priced

It’s very dull. There is no music and they are not flexible at all about it. The manager was borderline rude about it. We wanted to play some off our phones and this was also not allowed. So go there for a super quiet time rather than a fun Sunday . The fresh juice is very nice though - I recommend the passion and pineapple mix.
