Another tantalizing meal at Seven, have been several times but finally got round to writing this. Seven has a great atmosphere and having been there in the evenings on a couple of occasions I must say I love the atmosphere and of course the cocktails. I would safely say Seven does the best cocktails in Nairobi. The Mojitos are the... More

Disgusting inconsistent food. I do not understand why some people like it. The non-seafood dishes are a disappointment for sure.

A beautiful restaurant with a great atmosphere! The food was amazing and the menu tantalised every taste bud! The staff were friendly and efficient and the owner was at hand to meet guests and ensure both the food and service were to the highest of standards! We will definitely be returning!

One of the few places in Nairobi that actually knows how to cook fish properly (i.e. seared, semi-crispy outside and moist, not-quite-rare inside). The interior aims high for Nairobi standards, and though the execution is far from perfect, the attempt is admirable. My only gripe was the (lack of) oysters. Last time I went we ordered oysters on the half... More

Located in a strip mall, this fish restaurant is a hidden Nairobi gem. Food was really good: fresh tasty fish and very good wine. We even found a bottle of our favorite New Zealand Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc.

I'm not a fish lover but my family is so I went to Seven reluctantly expecting to eat a plain burger with no taste. To my surprise they had more than burgers and I asked for a steak that came really welldone as I like it, still with lots of flavor. My family tried the fish in different ways and... More

Service, top! Food, top! Drinks, top! What more can I say? A friend took me to Seven to celebrate my birthday and it was a great choice. As a seafood lover who now lives in a landlocked country, I was happy to be in Nairobi for the week and spend an evening at Seven. The calamari appetizer was delicious, and... More

I can definitely recommend this place as a great dining opportunity in Nairobi. Situated just off Waiyaki Way, this place has two specialities: seafood and steaks. I tried the fish cake which was great, then had the tenderloin which was absolutely divine, tender and cooked exactly to my specification. Great deco, nice ambience, friendly staff. Prices are a bit high-end,... More

I have been to Sevens several times with friends and family. Each time I tried several dishes from the seafood and steak selection. The entrecôte steak is a good choice with the mushroom sauce. The chili prawns starter is a bit too small, which is why I usually get the Sevens prawns starter for the table. I have also had... More

Doesn't seem like you could go wrong with any dish here. The food is great and fresh. Went with a group and every single dish ordered was excellent. The adjacent bar had a cool selection of drinks and friendly bar tenders. The chili crab pot is fun to eat and entertained the entire table from the way it was served... More
