Tucked away in a quiet environment in Kilimani, Palacina offers great service and food. The service is also excellent, waiters are attentive and quick to serve. Loved the food, the ambience makes all the difference when you have great food and service. Definitely worth more visits, highly recommended.

We went with a group of business colleagues and were disappointed. The setting was pleasant but service was poor. We had to continually ask for service. Quality of food was mixed ranging from good to poor. The old restaurant was a favourite - not any more!

The venue of the area is actually next door/adjacent to Palacina Interiors. They must use their own stock to decorate the interior of the restaurant as it looked very nice! The waiters were very nice and welcoming, and the outside seating was set out well. My date and I had a starter and a main each. The Red Snapper was... More
