Great restaurant for a quick meal

Had dinner there on the way back from a Safari Holiday ( few hours to kill between our flight back from the Mara and our flight out from the international airport. The repertoire ranges from quick salads and sandwiches to more fulsome meals. This place is always buzzing and I often eat here... read more

Since I was staying at the Fairview, I had several meals at the Mukutan cafe. Good burgers, nice (almost) Mexican food (excellent but with some local flavours), ... In the evening, there is some nice live music. And having dinner in the garden is just a treat. A great informal place.

The setting of the Mukutan Garden Cafe in the beautiful gardens of the Fairview Hotel add to its ambience and excitement. It is always bustling with people. The food that is served is of excellent quality. I had a bief burger and I must admit it was one of the best burgers I have had. The downside is that the... More

Mukutan garden cafe is great whether day or evening. Sitting in quiet surroundings with the waterfall close by. And in the evening an entertainer with song and his guitar. And you may have a coal burner right next to you if you feel it is a bit nippy. To day there were at least 4-5 businessmen with their computers eating... More

Loved the garden setting (and there is free WIFI for all). There's a great range of food available from steaks and such I to pizza and Mexican, as well as a local special. Good quality food and excellent service from friendly staff.

Popped into the Fairview's Mukutan Garden Cafe twice within a couple of days for a couple of morning hours each: on a Sunday and the following Tuesday. Quiet on the Sunday but busy on the Tuesday. Great, fast service on the Sunday but woefully slow on the Tuesday due to an inadequate staff presence - took almost an hour to... More

This is a great place for brunch, late lunch, afternoon tea. Staff are very attentive, service was quick and they paid attention to the children's needs. Will be back soon!

This is a great place for a relaxed drink and meal. The open air area feels very welcoming. They have a good menu, decent wines and competent service.
