Wonderful dinner in a beautiful setting. For sure one of the best restaurants in Nairobi. Part of the luxurious Fairview Hotel. Beautiful selection of wines which you can savor with your dish or as an aperitif in the cellar.

The Pango Brasserie is honestly my favorite restaurant in Nairobi, and i look forward to business travel to Kenya, just so i can go there! The presentation, flavor and variety of food and wine on offer is not available at other restaurants in Nairobi, though some 5star hotels claim this. A firm favorite for me and i will definitely return

Without doubt this was one of the best meals we have had in years. The amuse bouche was so good that I tried to wrangle seconds. We both chose the Tomato Consomme which more than lived up to expectations - light and fragrant. My Rack of Kenyan Lamb was cooked to perfection - indeed it melted in the mouth. Strong,... More

Pango is one of the top restaurants in Nairobi. It brands itself as a Brasserie, so the food is somewhat french inspired (the menu is in French and English). I had the seafood broth to start, and I have to say I was disappointed. It is served with big ceremony, it is a Pernod flambé kind of thing, but unfortunately... More

We had reserved a table for a birthday. We found it beautifully set up and in a quiet area. Our waiter was really attentive and the food presentation was just awesome. We all loved our lunch there and the kids even cleared their portions! Highly recommended

We were welcomed with a glass of wine n if you don't drink they offered cocktails instead (non alcoholic). Their food had a wonderful presentation, though what I asked for duck meat was not very well cooked (well I cant remember saying I wanted it rarely done but well done). If you are a person who loves your food in... More

The decor is stunning, from the wood-inlay mosaic of ocean fish to the doors open over the garden. The service is over the top: unobtrusive yet timely. Then there's the food: wow. After a tasty salad (dates, pecans, green apple and blue cheese), I had the duck (cooked just right). Then, for dessert, I had the Crepes Suzette -- complete... More

We had a wonderful experience there back in May. Best food in Africa. Met the chef, a charismatic Irish chap, with a passion for his work that shone through in the menu. Truly humbling when a chef with such dignity and pride cares about his customers so much. Will always come back! A true classic, European cuisine and standards!
