It was good

Had a great time there. The bar selection was pretty great and the fact that our comprehensive food didn't take millenniums to get there( we were a party of 7), made me happy. We had so much fun and had quite a lot of laughs with the great staff!

Ordered for three dishes and was pleasantly surprised. Got starters for lunch and on a another occasion got nice bar biting at the bar during an evening drink. Waiters helpful and courteous. Ambiance ordinary but clean and tidy. Need more parking s

Really the perfect place to go for Lebanese food in Nairobi and probably one of my favorite restaurants here. The place is great for groups (as sharing food is lovely with Mezze), but is very comfortable for a solo female too. Great bites, lovely grills, lots of garlic :-) Recommended!

The food here is fantastic, and the ambiance is very pleasant. However, it's a bit pricey. The mezze platters feed 1-3 more people than they say they do, so it's a fantastic place to come in groups.

Ive been coming back to cedars for years now and I am never let down with the quality of the food. Good service and even better barmen. Might be a bot pricy but is worth it considering the authenticity of the food and the overall service

We've visited Cedar's three times since January 2013. The food is tasty, ambience is nice and the service is pretty good. Prices are a bit expensive at 650 to 700 shillings per mezze like labneh and hummus, but portions are generous. Here's why I decided to write a review: tonight we were extremely alarmed when a friend found a dozen... More

It was the birthday of a friend of mine and we decided to go to this place to celebrate it. However, ended up being a BAD IDEA... Found out pieces of broken glass in the garlic sauce which almost cost me some broken teeth. We told about this to the Chef and the only answer we got was: "There is... More

Fantastic mediterranean experience - they have large platters with multiple dishes... including vegetarian options. Good value, too.
