Went following personal recommendation. Found it using google maps, which took me right outside the Hotel but the outer exterior is so low key, I then drove around looking for a Hotel entrance. On finding it, we were told to park in the street by some disinterested Maasai guards, despite subsequently finding that there is space inside to park.
Went in and stood in what we thought was the restaurant for about 5 minutes. Nobody around. Eventually somebody came out of the kitchen, shot past us without a word and knocked on a door by the entrance. Some more minutes then an old man looked at us quizzically before spitting out that the restaurant was upstairs, turning on his heel and going into an office area.
Suitably chastened we found the restaurant upstairs in a terrace with a tin roof - nice. Waiter could barely speak English so kept getting the drinks order wrong. Wine list is ridiculously expensive. We ordered a Pouilly Fume which had potential but was not chilled sufficiently. Food, which was the main reason, we went was pretty ordinary. We had way better at Shooters Grill the night before.
Paid a stonking amount and as we left the old man (is he the manager or the owner) did not even bother to look up from his desk to wish us goodnight.
