“A great lunch on the way back from safari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

After a long trip by car back from Masai Mari it felt like an oasis to reach the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden. We were warmly greated by staff and got a nice table outside in the relaxing environment, The menu was to our full satisfaction, and the staff were giving us very good attention. We also got a wine recommendation, that was suiting the food very well.

“Huge Thumbs up to the staff at Tamambo Karen Blixen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I stopped in for a late lunch on the 24th August with a very small kitten in tow. I had picked it up in the underground car park of a large office block an hour before hand and it was a filthy bedraggled little thing.
The staff at Tamambo's did not bat an eyelid at the state of it and went out of their way to ensure it had milk, warm blankets and still managed to serve us a flawless meal with their usual aplomb.

The food and the atmosphere in both the garden and the restaurant are always fantastic but it really is a huge testament to the staff that they are willing to take in their stride anything thrown their way and still ensure ones experience is a good one.

Thank you.

“Relaxing and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Visited whilst heading to the Nairobi Giraffe Centre. I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of the food, the relaxing and beautiful gardens and the attentive staff. Sincerely recommended. I'll certainly go back next time I'm over there.

“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

What a wonderful surprise to find. After living in Gabon for 3 years, it is a wonderful change (experience) to come to someplace so beautiful and friendly!!! Very welcoming and relaxing for a restaurant! I can't wait to bring our family and friends here when they visit Kenya!!! It will be one of our favourites for sure!!!
