“Ambience, splendid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

I like the ambience, & dark wood theme of the bar. I also like the soft background music, it's a great place to have conversation. Even ideal for a business meeting.

“Delightful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Pampered is what I felt here. Seated outside on a warm, balmy winter day (same as Spring in Australia) with a delicious menu to choose from and beautiful garden surroundings. Modern and clean facilities.

“Great Ambience! Great Food! Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Tamambo Karen Blixen is a wonderful gateway. The well manicured and spacious gardens gives a sense of serenity and tranquility. Not only is it a place of rejuvenation but also a place to get your creative juices flowing with the help of the timeless architecture and rich history. Let me not get to the food... I have one word, perfect! Prepared in good time and tasty! One thing that will linger in your mind after visiting Karen Blixen is the service. A service with a smile and rare dedication. They obviously have a loyal customer with me and my family!

“Surprise Packet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

My son and I had a wonderful lunch during our day touring the sights of Nairobi with our tour guide from Wima Tours who had been so professional and frienly that we invited him to join us. The food, service and general appearance of the restaurant and gardens was worth the visit.
