We ate lunch here twice while visiting & working in the Nairobi/Nakuru area, and it is a real treasure set in private wooded surroundings. You enter thru a security gate, then walk to an outdoor patio with large sun umbrellas covering all tables. Service is a bit slow, but the food is definitely worth the wait. My 1st lunch was...

Went for shopping at the handicfaft shop. We were a bit hesitant of having lunch in a totally empty restaurant but the menu looked nice. And wow.. The food was really good! And service even better!

We had a delicious lunch here followed by some shopping in the excellent shops next door. Staff was friendly and attentive and the food was fresh and tasty. The garden setting was lush and beautiful with lots of intersting birds at the feeders.

We were driven here by our tour guide after a visit to the giraff center. To be honest we didnt have great expectations as we suspected this would be a tourist trap.
