Great eating place in Nairobi

I went for dinner at Fogo Gaucho in Westlands and it was awesome. The hotel serves different kinds of meats and the salads are simply yummy. Make sure you make your reservation and keep time so that you have enough time to stuff yourself. The turn-off from Waiyaki way sometimes gets blocked by... read more

If you are looking for a place to have a taste of a wide variety of meat,this is the place to go. Very juicy tasty meat and pocket friendly.

You'd think that all you're going to get is meat, meat and more meat but a trip to the salad bar makes it clear that these guys have got it figured. Non stop food, lively crowd and really does cater to carnivores and herbivores alike.

Loved the food, loved the service. It was a busy night yet I still felt special attention. I would recommend it to all the meat lovers. 15 choices of meat all you can eat...I didn't make it through half. The salads are pretty good too.

The reason Foco Gaucho is a 5 star for me is that with a fixed price meal, a huge range of delicious salads, a innovative approach to being able to sample a wide variety of meat and fish and great congenial atmosphere, this restaurant is exactly what it sets out to be at incredible value. Brilliant. It is equally great... More

My teenage son and friends like this place. Its an all-you-can-eat meat restaurant. Boys enjoy trying to each more than the other. Its a popular family restaurant in Nairobi. I have also seen a few couples there on dates. The deep fried bananas and pineapple with cinnamon are excellent. That is just not enough reason for me to continue to... More

This is the place to be if you love meat. The all you can eat menu with assorted meat and fish as well as a variety of salads. The ambience is also fantastic with a live band playing music in the background. I loved it

The place rarely disappoints, although in my last visit this month I felt that since we were seated at the far end several waiters when doing their rounds would fail to pass by our table forcing us to raise our hands for attention. Great improvement on the salads.

If you love your meat and love your meat on tap this is the place to go. The experience is something to write home about. We called it a game, and you will understand when you visit these guys. Not for people who do not like flamed grilled food though because their meat is prepared on an open flame.

Hidden behind a Matatu bus stop the location does not seem to be very promising: it's loud, it's dirty, it's Nairobi.... once you've entered everything changes: nice restaurant, great staff and the meat is just the best you could possibly find in Nairobi. All you can eat for just about 25 dollars. Try this at home... The salad bar is... More
