“Big Letdown”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant a half dozen times over the last 5 years. It has slowly gone down hill and today will be the last time we eat here. When we ordered drinks, many sodas were not available. They are not maintaining stock. This was a bad indicator. My wife ordered a pasta and I ordered a pizza. After a bit of time the waiter returned to note that there were problems and both of us needed to modify our order, again for lack of having stock. When the food arrived, we were both let down. My wife had ordered a seafood mix but it only had shrimp. It was good, but not what she ordered and the portion was almost half of what it had been in the past. My pizza came with 'sausage'. The cheap, nasty, local Kenyan sausage. Not the kind of sausage you would expect to find on a nice, italian pizza. We expected the slow service, so it didn't put us off to much. At the end of the meal, the waiter noted that there was only one option for the desserts. If this place is not keeping much stock in all the categories of food, things are not going well. A fair warning before you visit this place.

“Laid back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

A quiet place not far from Yaya centre, easily accessible. I'd say it's a good place for a maximum of two hour drink when you want an easy, quiet conversation. The atmosphere is quite beautiful with nice background music. Service is not that great though, we had to keep looking out for the waiter, and the food takes a while to come. The food is average at best, however the cocktails were not too shabby. It closes at around 11pm or so, so plan to dine and leave early.

“Decent place. Avg food but good ice creams”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice place near yaya centre. Their food is average but the ice cream or rather desserts are pretty good. The only good thing other than desserts is that the place is very cosy and you can get parking easily.

“Very Quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I am always amazed about how quiet this place is. The location is excellent and I also love the decor on the terrace.

We were the only ones for lunch and the staff seemed a bit surprised to see us. We ordered a couple of pizzas and they took a long time, it seems like they had to fire up the pizza oven as it was not already lit. Pizzas were fine if a little expensive compared to other local restaurants.

They do need to step there game up in order to fulfill their potential.
