Average restaurant in terms of food – stick to the seafood, meats/duck are to fatty, the wrong cut. Waiter messed up our dessert order, no apology, used my fellow diner’s cutlery to put out the candle on the fondue and returned it back to her to continue eating with!!! Continuous charade of “happy birthday” belted out throughout the dinner (for... More

Ambience great but not impressed with the menu offerings. Am sure you could do much more. However food that is served is of good quality and presentation. Just work on your menu

Being about 500 km from the sea, I'm often a bit wary about seafood in Nairobi ... the most common fish are tilapia and Nile perch from Lake Victoria. However, Seven somehow manages to get a supply of quite a variety of fresh seafood; you're waiter will be happy to inform you of what's available on the night you visit.... More

The place has both indoor and outdoor seating, very nice ambiente. The waitress announced several specials of the day which sounded so good that a look in the menu was unnecessary. The choices of fish were great, tasted very good and the service was nice, friendly and efficient. Go there and try your luck without a reservation (like we did)... More

The appetizers were just ok but we were totally blown away by the entrees and the presentation of the food. We had the grilled sea bream, and the sea bream with pancetta and jalapeno sauce which were both delicious. The presentation of the entrecote steak was great as was the taste!

Having read the reviews, we decided that we must try and, we have to say, they were almost right. The food was exquisite, the service impeccable and certainly worth 5 stars out of 5. But better than Tamarind?? We are not so sure. Seven was perhaps a little too noisy for the perfect dining experience and the tables were a... More
