A must have experience

Except for the rather steep prices (which are to be expected anyway) everything about this restaurant is top notch. First class food and ambience. The waiters are very friendly and knowledgeable.

The place is good for Italian Foods, and lots of UN and NGO chicks there too :) you night probably get a date with one of them who desperately came back from one of the hardship duty stations if you are lucky

Good for pizza, sushi, and vegetarian. Usually guitar accompaniment of varying quality. Pleasant surrounding overlooking gardens

We had a nice dinner here while staying at the Fairview hotel. Food was nice, service was good and environment was elegant. The wine list did not include any South African white wines, which we found surprising.

After visiting the garden restaurant many time and sampling the brilliant food and also visiting the pool restaurant we all decided to meet a colleague and it took 75 mins in rush hour to get there (only a mile away from our hotel). I choose tomato soup with meatballs starter, the meatballs were smaller than peanuts and hardly worth the... More

The Pango Brasserie is the signature restaurant of the Fairview Hotel. Its chef is of Moroccan and French origin, which can be tasted in some of the dishes... Since I was staying at the hotel, I had several dinners there, all very good. The restaurant itself is really nice (excepted for that fridge in the middle of the dining room)... More

Impressed by the service of this restaurant, really outstanding together with an excellent food quality, presentation of the dishes and taste. Seems to be a very good address for business travelers. First time there but not last one! The hotel looks also very nice and animated. Good address

Must say my all time favorite restaurants. Wish I could go more often. The service is slow, but I think that is intentional so you enjoy your meal and don't feel rushed. If your looking for first passed good restaurant this is not it. But if your looking for something slow, mellow, flavorful food, this is the place. They also... More

Pango is a fine dining restaurant within Fairview Hotel, a country hotel within the city. This hotel is set in a quiete ambiance and you can be sure to encounter movers and shakers of Kenyan busziness and political arena here. Very good food and service but a slightly higher price compared to their other restaurants.
