Pango has excellent reviews but my own experience was average. The good - staff was friendly, had reserved our table for us and gave us an aperitif when we arrived. The tomato consommé was excellent! The flavor of most of the meals was good (except the rack of lamb!) The bad - the service was slow and it took too... More

I usually stay at the Fairview but this was my first time at Pango as there are so many other eating options at the Hotel The food was generally good - my guests had seafood and that was excellent but the meat I had was tough and the maitre did not seem to concerned when I mentioned this! The ambience... More

The food was delicious and there was big variety. The presentation was also very nice. The ambience was nice though the place somewhat packed with guests and tables squeezed but the staff were quick to re-arrange the tables when the other guests were done. They were also quite helpful though they didn't have to look too serious, a smile would... More

A nice restaurant with excellent food, that is well presented indeed. The service was up to par and the ambience is very pleasant. Some of the dishes though may not be to others' taste, so choose wisely. Quite pricey, but great for special occasions.

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
