Superb deserts. Went a couple of weeks ago and ate the Al a Carte – best steak I have had for a... More

An internationally-themed buffet breakfast and lunch are served in the Moroccan-styled restuarant. It features a a table d'hote dinner menu and 24-hour brasseries Service. It has a speciality coffee area aswell. Their deserts are to die for!

I'll leap at any chance for a buffet lunch at the Serena's poolside restaurant. What a great spread! I love the cold stuff, and there's nowhere better in Nairobi for that... not to mention the far too tempting deserts. Delightful service too. Always. Guaranteed.

This is the hotels main restaurant and it caters for many people, so the buffet selection is extensive and appetising. We had the buffet for breakfast and the selection offered catered for several different nationalities.We had two a la carte meals too and one was very good (curried prawns) , the other not so impressive (risotto was undercooked).

Located at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi, this restaurant offers fine dinning, for those looking for something extra. The staff are very friendly and hospitable. The food is finger licking and nicely presented. Its a nice place to have a meeting around Nairobi as its very accessible and has parking.

Evenings have a set menu and a good selection on the a la carte which includes grills and Indian style food. My friends had the Indian which looked and smelled lovely while I... More

Being tourists newly returned from safari, we felt a little out of place in the sophisticated atmosphere but were quickly put at ease. Good food and very good staff.
