We dined here at the end of our Kenya safari trip last week. Located very near the airport, it served nicely as a final dinner for our tour group before boarding our flight back home. The location has heavy security so no safety concerns at all. This is a typical Brazilian steakhouse and we enjoyed our time here. The turkey,... More

This is a Brazilian style steak house where all types of meats are carved at your table. The food was great and the choices were unbelievable.

Carnivore is a favorite for meat lovers, I was there recently and have always loved the place but the service levels have dropped , as they took over 45 mins to serve us food and had billed us for something we had not ordered, it seems that they are over whelmed on Sundays. If you decide to go you will... More

Brilliant service, ambience and food (apart from thr croc meat). Perhaps if you tried similar meat restautants (I.e. brazialian) it is not such a novelty but it is cool!

Let me start by pointing out that I myself am a vegetarian. This restaurant visit was part of a group tour in Kenya so I had no choice. I was however pleasantly surprised. They had plenty of delicious vegetarian alternatives to all the meat. The service was excellent - fast and very friendly. The restaurant has a nice interior, clean... More

We had time for lunch in Nairobi after a safari so we picked Carnivore. It is convenient to Wilson Airport. The restaurant is beautiful - we sat on the covered patio which is gorgeous. And the service is quite fine. We had the meat buffet (obviously a specialty) which is brought to your table, selection by selection. Turkey, beef, crocodile,... More

We went for lunch and enjoyed the environment. Food was fine, there are many sides and it was a chance to try a few things that were different. It is a bit of a tourist trap, but the service and wait staff were good as well.

If you love exotic game, this is the place for you! We enjoyed ostrich, crocodile and quail as well as other more mainstream meats. If you are feeling really adventurous, try the ox balls. The servings keep coming until you cry uncle. You'll never go hungry here and will enjoy a unique dining experience.
