This was our last supper on our African safari. What a difference being back in the city after 10 days in the bush! ATMOSPHERE: The two covered outdoor terraces are reminiscent of an Italian restaurant with terra cotta tile floors and white walls & furniture but the piped-in jazz music also gives you a New Orleans feel. There are street... More

This restaurant works hard to provide a pleasant dining experience. The staff is very welcoming and the service is excellent. The breakfast buffet is expansive. Dinner offers good variety and a great wine list. Salads are fresh and my fish dish was moist and well flavored.

Four of us had dinner there and it was not worth the money at all. The food was of very poor taste and the atmosphere was not splendid either (I was told it was much nicer to sit in the garden, but it was not an option for us at that moment). The wine was nice but pricey. The waiter... More

I would not have thought of the kind of experience I got at this fabulous place. The ambiance is excellent and the meals were so nice except for the waiter who served us. He looked stressed up and was evidently not himself. I could image it was a one of attitude. Otherwise the supervisor made up for him. He was... More

The pros: we enjoyed two breakfast mornings on the terrace which were quite good. Omelets made on the spot (and waffles - good, heart shaped, but way too thin), really nice selection of fresh fruit; baked goods so-so, consistent with what we found elsewhere in Kenya - a bit dry, heavy; nice breakfast curry option and poached eggs. BUT why... More

There has been a great improvement in service. I did have a group of 10 clients and there were very happy with the Service at The Lord Delamere Terrace. The food was very good. The rooms have been improved a lot. My room was fantastic and my clients were very happy with everything except the Mini Bar Control system. It... More

I brought two friends to Lord Delamere Terrace this week. They were very excited to try the lava chocolate cake, which we were surprised to see priced at only 500 shillings. But when we received the bill, we saw that we had been charged 800 shillings for the item. A quick review showed that only two of our three menus... More

Here you feel like they know what they are doing. Probably its because of the time they have been around, may be I am wrong, but all in all its a lovely place to have a meal and endulge

The restaurant is very nice. Despite being on a busy street, strategic placement of bushes and flowers make it quiet and pleasant, and somehow they make everything smell faintly of lemongrass, while the street 10 feet away smells... distinctly less nice. I had the best fish and chips of my life here. They were not traditional - the fish was... More

We arrived in a tropical storm which only added to the wonderful ambience of this classic hotel. We had lunch at the Lord Delamere - two of us had buffet, two had steaks. Met with smiles and classy presentation. Individual valets put behind our chairs for our jackets. Wine selection good - reasonably priced, quality SA whites produced perfectly chilled... More
