What can be better than catching a bit of breeze from Lake Victoria, enjoying a chilled wine, having wifi to check the latesta and last but not least enjoy a mouth watering meal.

The view is great, but the food isn't. The service was not very good, and they couldn't split the bill.

We went with friends on a Friday night to celebrate a birthday. The food, the service, and the atmosphere were all excellent. And you can't beat the view out over Lake Victoria. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

I was there on Friday night. There were a band playing, which I really enjoyed. I ordered the chicken avocado salad, at first, they said they did not have it, but then later they tried to get this dish for me. The chicken was just great, full of flavor. It is a good place to spend your Friday night.

The Rooftop Bar above the Duke of Breeze Hotel does give you an amazing view over Kisumu and Lake Victoria, but the bar itself is not that special. It is worth the short climb up the staircase to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset but I personally would want to stay there much longer. There is no lift so... More

Went there with a group of people one evening. Enjoyed a few drinks, the breeze (given the heat in Kisumu) and simple yet nice set up. However, we waited for quite some time for the food to arrive. What I was served was an approximation of what I actually orded. But then again, I was too hungry to care by... More

A single female ex-pat arriving alone and not knowing a soul in Kisumu, Rooftop bar is where I made friends. Rooftop bar has an amazing view, good prices, good drinks, and a nice mix of local and foreigners in their 20s-30s. The entrance to the top is kinda funky, well- Rooftop Bar is kinda funky - but it's a good... More

We ate at this rooftop restaurant in the evening - great breeze but not much of a view because it was nightfall.  The journey to the rooftop was interesting...you pass by a phantom reception desk and walk up a narrow four flights of stairs that are dark, gringy and resemble a warehouse.  On the journey you pass a restaurant and...

Good food, drinks, and a view of the city. Go up for dinner or pre-drinks before you go clubbing. Gotta love a good rooftop at sunset.
