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.

We stayed at the Country Lodge and ate at the Pwani bar several times because of the setting. My husband and I ate there together. We also ate there with friends. I would give the beautiful setting 4 stars. Unfortunately, the food and the service are average. The menu is an extremely limited bar menu. I wish that it had... More

Had dinner at this restaurant because I like the pool setting and the relaxing atmosphere after a full days work in Nairobi. While the menu is appetizing, I was very disappointed by the meal. I ordered the grilled Tuna which arrived cold while the vegetables were hot. It seems that they put the grilled tuna aside until the vegetables were... More

We were a big party and most people had steaks which did not all arrive as ordered and had to be sent back, as did my grilled prawns, 'don't play the raw prawn with me cobber' sprang to mind! The accompanying veg and chips were under seasoned and my side salad came undressed. However the service was attentive. It's a... More
