“Excellent Kenya send-off!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We went to Tamambo as a group of 30 to celebrate an intense 2 week education and medical trip. The staff was very attentive to our needs, and they made sure we had finished dessert in a timely manner so we could catch our midnight flight. The atmosphere was open and inviting with a modern African theme. The restaurant is on the grounds of Karen Blixen's plantation, which is a worthwhile excursion. Finally, the food was fantastic. Most of our party stuck with the Themes of Africa menu, and no one was disappointed. I stuck with the fish, which was perfectly prepared. Most menu items were about $20. Overall, it was well worth our time and money.

“Lovely place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is very nice, full of trees, flowers and pure nature. Food is also good, however, the ambiance is the most remarkable part of the experience!

“Tamambo Karen Blixen revisited by Superb Africa Safaris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Housed on site of the original farmhouse, this cosy restaurant has been redecorated and extended with an outdoor terrace perfect for alfresco dining.
The menu offers fusion of Tamarind and Tamambo dishes with an array of choices available for lunch and dinner.

Specialty menus for functions and dedicated spaces such as the Grand Marquee Sutton style tent and Grogan House offer exclusivity and privacy for private dinners and functions.
Karen Blixen secures a peaceful location amidst the largest and oldest formal gardens in Kenya.
