Mediterraneo is a classic in Nairobi. They have several restaurants, which I believe all have the same menu. The menu does offer a lot of options and should cover every tastes, and the quality of food remains the same over time- average, this is. Nothing tastes terrible, but it is not spectacular either, which is a bit of a problem... More

Used to visit this restaurant frequently.. They became successful.and service started going down. The owner or head chef who previously used to work started at the Italian Restaurant got to know most of his customers. Worked out who is rich etc etc and started giving preferential treatment. I don't accept this. Also the quality of food has gone down. I... More

Great restaurant, love the menu... The Molo lamb chops were great, but the French fries are hard and horrible. Funny thing was how the waiters were always running. Yes I would go back, four times over, but not have French fries as an accompaniment.

I've been here a couple of times over the past 8 or so years and it's always a pleasure. Good cuisine with a wide variety to choose from, intimate setting (at night) and good service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is very good but can be a bit on the price side for Kenya. The pizza was a favorite with our group but the pasta is also very good. The outdoor patio has warmers so you can dine there all year round.

I went to Mediterraneo again after a number of years, both to try the new place at West 9 in Westlands and to impress a few business guests from Tanzania with some excellent food from my native Italy. The five of us all ordered something different, with only one ordering a pizza. I had a plate of "Scaloppine di tacchinella... More

I know this restaurant for more than 8 years, eat there many times, it was always nice but in the last year or so they made an impressive progress and it's one of the best in our region. Great pizza, very good pasta and one of the best fiorentina steak it had for a long time. Kids friendly and good... More

Have visited many times. Apart from the noise of the Mtatu stand outside it is a good place for a decent plate of Italian food. The menu selection is almost overwhelming as is the drinks menu. If this is what you are looking for in Westlands, then you have found the right place.
