My wife and I decided to eat here as we were both famished after a long day. We made the mistake of eating the breads and nibbles before the main course arrived. The food quality and portion sizes were more then expected. A great place to eat and very attentive staff. Will return here with an empty stomach.

We have been to this restaurant many times for the past few years and still love coming back. Last time i visited was 12th July and decided to try their pasta with prawns! Out of this world. Love their elaborate menu, yet to see such a menu anywhere else. You will want to try every item one at a time.... More

The food and non-alcoholic cocktail I had were absolutely fabulous. Outside seating is relaxing and quiet. I went during lunch so there weren't many people but even so the food came much faster than expected. I was very impressed.

Although a little to large the atmosphere is still great.. The food is always great. Never had a bad meal.. The deserts are to die for!! Been there just for the deserts!!! The staff always great and helpful. Getting there is a problem so give yourself plenty of time.. Traffic in that area is not good....

Mediterraneo makes great food - the breads, pizzas and lasagnas. but the service is far from great. Perhaps being frequented by expatriates, the staff have a preference for foreign looking clientele, probably as they tip better. We sat at a table and ;literally had to plead for service as the waiters did not bother to come take our order. instead... More

Asked for a margherita pizza and got a standard cheese pizza instead. Mild cheddar substituted for mozzarella and tomato sauce instead of real tomatoes (this Kenya people !!! Fresh produce is not that pricey) with flecks of basil. Should be ashamed to call it Italian if the simplest, tastiest pizza cannot be put together correctly.

First night in Kenya and the well reviewed local places were closed on Saturday. This was a local alternative that was open. As it was the week end the seating was wide open and service was very good as there were probably 2x as many staff as patrons. The portion sizes were quite generous and the options quite diverse. Overall... More
