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

This café is really about the setting. Garden has a waterfall and very lush landscaping (it's within in the walls of the Fairview Hotel, Nairobi). Service was very friendly as well.

Stayed at the Fairview Hotel and tried the garden restaurant for dinner. The waiter was really friendly and offered good advice on the local beers and wines. The food was good, nothing exceptional but also nothing wrong. The gardens are lovely. Nice place to eat if you're staying over

We decided to have breakfast here on a nice Sunday morning. The ambiance was great, the garden a pleasure to sit in, but the choice for breakfast was really meagre and based on eggs and meat products (bacon and sausages) and with coffee included In addition, it was 1300 KEs per person. The pleasure of sitting in a lovely garden... More

Very slow service, after ordering drinks it takes around 10/15 mins for them to come, my first time I ordered a chicken burrito but got a beef one, I would of sent back but had taken a long time, second time chicken...

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.
