“Fun Bar and Pretty Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

If you're visiting Nairobi you need to go here - lots of locals prop up the bar to watch interational sport, dining in the gardens is pleasant and the food not bad - pop in after you've done a tour of Karen Blixen House which is a few hundred metres up the road. Also nearby is Kazuri Beads, so you can do all three in a few hours and be very happy!

“Very nice food, great and friendly service, beautiful garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We went with the family for a Sunday lunch. The service was very friendly and very quick. The Garden is beautiful and makes it great surroundings for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon. Lots of families with children. The food, a buffet, was wonderful for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

“Nice place to mix and mingle!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We had lunch here. Food was very nice and fairly big portions too. You get to meet everyone here! Nice place to relax and enjoy your food and drink. Staff is very friendly too. Take time to walk around and breath that fresh air!

“Green and pleasant place to lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We ate here before visiting the Karen Blixen Museum, and it was a lovely, green location, with shady tables to shelter from the sun. The food was delicious, and the portions were more than enough to satisfy the hungriest appetites. The local take on nachos (kachos? Or something like that) were especially delicious. There were also several vegetarian options so all of us could eat happily.
