Our party of 3 visited Seven to celebrate a birthday. After a diet of meat staying at the Safari Park Hotel, we all felt the need for seafood and we weren't disappointed. The lobster cappuccino, red snapper were great. Sav blanc was reasonably priced, staff very welcoming and a surprise birthday dessert was tastefully handled. Give it a try.

That's what this place is for seafood lovers. Wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful ambience. Made my birthday outing an excellent treat. Setting is not too private hence a perfect place for groups as opposed to a romantic dinner. Would recommend it.

I loved the reception they gave us though we were an hour late due to Nairobi Traffic. Friendly waiters, who had patience and were well versed with the menu.

The place might be one of the fanciest in Nairobi, many expensive cars around and it starts to be crowded as of 8:00pm (concierge advised us to come before and he was right). The seafood is really great, I enjoyed everything. The place is noisy a bit and the tables are not so large to accommodate larger gatherings. Nice...

Seven Seafood is one of my favorite restaurant in Nairobi. They have a great menu that changes every now and then, and options are always flavorful. I must say that they can be inconsistent and I have been disappointed with a dishes that I know usually are tasty. I personally love the crab pots, which are also probably the best... More

W went as a large group of 12 to this restaurant for a birthday party. Unfortunately, after 2 1/2 hours our main courses still hadn't arrived, despite repeated assurances that they were coming. eventually, we gave an ultimatum of delivery in ten minutes or we walked - only to be reassured that the food 'was being plated'.

The best fish restaurant in Nairobi... Service a bit touch and go times... Definitely overpriced, especially at night where there is a different menu.
