Been 3 times now and swear never to go again. While the hotel is lovely - albeit slightly sterile, the restaurant is a disaster. Service awful - no-one in control and waiters milling around. Have to pour your own wine and glasses sitting empty for ages. Food service every time has been wrong in one way or another. I have... More

Having visited the hotel twice in a month I must say that every visit was special and unique. First was the prawn Friday lunch where I had the best prawns presented with style. The service was exceptional and attentive and the overall experience was a dream. English High tea was another amazing experience. Served in the traditional English style with... More

I happen to visit the place on the weekend. It really is exquisite. The ambiance is great and very intimate for a date. The meals served were woooooi. . . . Delicious to taste, mouth watering. Especially the Pork ribs and the hemming ways treat. The service is top notch and i will be going back there again

The first thing that I noticed on the way there was the clear signage which a number of restaurants need to work on. The grounds and structure are a delight to the eyes. I loved the service and ambiance that is tastefully done. The food wasn't so great, it may have been what I ordered ( Beef ribs ) but... More

Had never seen this hotel / restaurant in my travels so was a pleasant surprise when we looked for a place to eat on a free Sunday, during a recent business trip. Food most enjoyable and sitting outside in the Karen surrounds was a great way to relax.

The most enjoyable part of our lunch there was the very nice outdoor patio facing garden and lush grounds. You face a nicely landscaped garden and trees, no high rise in sight, hotel rooms are tucked on the side. Hemingways is in the Karen region, about 25 minutes away from Nairobi CBD when there is no traffic. It is very... More

Fantastic food and wonderful setting. Walking through the lobby is like waling into a colonial hotel...but welcoming to all. Lovely ambiance.....we went for lunch and will return soon. Also want to try the English tea which friends say is spectacular.

We were amazingly well looked after by staff who were, as ever with Hemingways, perfect. The place and the space is epic and in my experience unrivalled in the Capitol. Nothing short of a remarkable experience. If you're in Nairobi then you must eat here at least once, make an afternoon/evening of it and spoil yourself. My wife and I... More
