A relative newcomer in Nairobi, this restaurant is located inside the Kempinski hotel. The menu is well balanced with an eclectic mix of italian dishes and a reasonable wine list. The food is average italian but upper-level for Nairobi, so worth a visit. Service is adequate for the standard expected,but might learn from other local restaurants like DusitD4.

Yet another lazy brunch outing with the kids and my foodie friend. Love the ambience of the hotel and Cafe Villa Rosa is no exception. You feel like you are in proper restaurant. Service can be slow and the buffet never seems to open on time but that is the only downsides. I love their selection but the highlight for... More

It had all been sitting out for a while and not a lot of different variety (4 different kinds of rice is not variety). Next night ate somewhere else is twice the... More
