OUR Food

Karibu’s unique menu was created by owner Leslie from Corsica, a small island in the south of France. In the Mediterranean, food is prepared, served and eaten with love and passion, a value that is at the core of the Karibu kitchen.

Our dishes are inspired by the French / Mediterranean concept of food; dishes such as slow cooked Boeuf Bourguignon or fish baked in wine, garlic and parsley. We’ve also added in some contemporary favorites such as our signature Karibu Burgers and Poke Bowl Salads, as well as a selection of traditional Ugandan dishes for those wanting to sample the local fare.

We try to grow as much as we can in our organic perma-culture garden as well as visiting the markets daily to buy fresh vegetables, fish and meat.


Our Breakfast Menu, served from 5am, is included in the room rate. All dishes are accompanied by a selection of seasonal fruits, a freshly blended fruit juice as well as tea or freshly ground Ugandan coffee.

Then choose from our range of signature breakfast dishes, From overnight oats, to banana pancakes, to poached eggs on fresh avocado, to the traditional “Full English” breakfast – there is something for everyone’s taste.

If you are leaving us before 5am we offer an “Express Breakfast” of Fruit, Muesli, Pancakes, Juice, Tea and Coffee


The Lunch menu is available through-out the day and available to order on an a-la-carte basis. Our Mediterranean Salads and healthy Poke Bowls are popular on a hot day, or for those with more of an appetite, one of Karibu’s signature burgers with Rosemary Fired Potato Wedges hits the spot. Our lunch menu also lets you try some Ugandan favorites such as the “Rolex” or Posho and Beans.


Each evening Karibu serves a fresh and tasty 4-Course set-menu for just $US 30. We begin hours in advance, baking our bread fresh, soups are simmered down from only whole ingredients and meat (when applicable) is slow-cooked. We always have a vegetarian option and can adapt our menu to any dietary requirements. Please note that dinner bookings are by advance reservation only.


Most meals are served in our main restaurant, looking out over our sunny tropical garden with its abundant birdlife. For evening dining we can sometimes serve meals in the ambiently lit area next to our swimming pool (note: this option is weather dependent).
