The 24-hour Citadel Restaurant serves international brasserie cuisine that includes large breakfast and lunch buffets and an a la carte dinner menu inspired by the Mediterranean and Uganda. On Saturdays, a plentiful Italian lunch buffet is followed by an evening barbeque at the pool deck. On Sundays, the chefs indulge guests with all all-day American brunch menu. The Citadel looks out over Lake Victoria and has rustic touches like low wooden beams and mosaics depicting Tuscany.

Children can be accommodated with high chairs, baby-appropriate food and earlier meal times.
The Serena Lake Victoria also provides round-the-clock room service that includes everything from a classic club sandwich or tasty curry to sundowners and canapés on your terrace.
