I liked the location as it is near to city Center, the restaurant is full most of the time and the service is very good. However, I disliked the atmosphere as I felt it is commercial eat and go, not a place to enjoy a company.

I'm a vegetarian and ended up going with a group of colleagues who were meat eaters. Sadly there were not too many vegetarian options that they had other than the salad bar :-(

My friends surprised me with a visit to Fogo Gaucho to celebrate my birthday. Staff were waiting by the car to escort us under umbrellas to the restaurant. We were welcomed in immediately and offered a table. When the full party arrived, we entered the dining room and the serving protocol was explained. We were encouraged to help ourselves to... More

We usually enjoy Brazilian Churrascaria - the waitstaff pass through the dining area with large skewers of various kinds of hot-off-the-grill meat - you turn the colored disk at your place at the table to green to indicate you want to eat, and red to indicate a pause or finish. We arrived early and were able to enjoy the buffet... More

I really enjoyed my dinner at this restaurant. The meat was tasty and really well prepared. Like at most restaurants in Nairobi the service was excellent and the staff very friendly. This is a great restaurant close to the centre of the city. It is good for business or casual dining and I will visit th again.
