Could do with more choice

Lovely settings based around the pool, wish I chose to stay at this hotel now but we keep coming back for meals.... Good variation of food on the menu, I just thought that if having lunch all the meals are on the heavy side, I went for the burger, really nice, the bun was a tad stale so I eat... read more

Since I was staying at the Fairview hotel, I had several dinners there. The settings is great, either by the pool or in the garden. Other tables, in a more traditional setting, are available but it is less fun in my view. The restaurant offers a large choice of steaks, either from local meat (a bit hard as this is... More

The Pwani restaurant has 14-15 tables at the poolside in addition to what is on the lower terrace under the roof. It is a lovely sitting next to the pool looking at the trees and enjoying the calm. The food varies in quality from prawns grilled to their death and hard as rubber without any taste to delicious steaks hung... More

Interesting experience. I had lunch here a couple of times last week. Very good service. The food was some good some not so. The Grilled Chicken was great. The other day I had the burger which was OK but generally too wet . The Chicken wings were very odd and not to my taste. Service was prompt as you would... More

Food was delicious. I had the hamburger and my wife had half a chicken. Both meals were well worth it

The outdoor setting next to the swimming pool is great and provides for a nice and relaxing atmosphere after a days work. I ordered a chicken salad. It was great. The portions were right. Perhaps a bit on the expensive side, but well worth it.

I eat here often, and always have a delicious meal. This time I had a steak, and swapped out the carbs for extra veg, no problem.

Had a business meeting. Had not reserved a table for 7, but the waiter was efficient and we got a table within a few minutes. The staff are very courteous, the food very good. Nice views over the swimming pool. Do not mind going back again. Nice garden.

I had two meals at this restuarant - the outdoor seating is great, but I felt that the descriptions of the meals on the menu were more promising than the actual meal. There was nothing wrong with it, but I had high expectations.
