We have dined here on four or five times with differing groups of friends and business colleagues. We have never been disappointed, the service can be mixed but the menu, the wines and the overall quality is what you could expect in many of the 'better' European restaurants. the location is typical of many independent African restaurants and sits in...

The only thing really missing to this place is the location. The seafood is excellent, dishes creative and the prices consequently high. The interior design is somehow trendy, but when sitting outside you will find yourself eating in the parking lot of the ABC plaza, which is definetly not a nice location.

We've eaten here several times during visits to Nairobi the last couple of months, and enjoy it every time. A visit to Seven Seafood & Grill is worth it even just for the 3 dippings sauces served at the beginning with bread. We've tried Seven for lunch, sundowners/bitings and dinner. The dinner menu has always been excellent, but we were... More

Normally I don't go for seafood in a non-coastal city, but Nairobi has a rare find in Seven Seafood & Grill. Their dishes are inventive and tasteful, great service and atmosphere too.

The Fairmont in Upper Hill will probably disagree (if you don't know upstairs dining there is a real treat) But for total ambiance this place is it. The seafood is as good as anything you will find on the coast, the lobster cappacino and the calamari are two stand outs. And I have never had a guest do anything but... More

Have eaten there quite a few times and the general vibe is great and the staff really are impressive. Our meals have generally been excellent with one or two exceptions but despite the pretty high prices we keep going back so that says something.

A fantastic selection of seafood and a great atmosphere. Expensive and popular with the expats as well as locals. The white snapper was sensational though my husband was not as impressed with his choice (sorry, can't remember what he had). We were part of a large party and he was the only one who wasn't completely impressed. Amazing cocktails including... More

Seven is probably the best restaurant in Nairobi at the moment (early 2012). Seafood is their specialty. They will grill a fresh fish for you in several different ways, or prepare stuffed squid, octopus, crab, lobster, ... all excellent. We've eaten here half a dozen times, always excellent. Some personal preferences: The Lemon Martini (no longer on the drinks menu,... More

Best eating place in Nairobi! Good food, good value especially at lunch. Set in a shopping mall on the edgee of the car park but don't be put off. It is nice! Try the fish & chips with corn flake batter! Yum...
