“A welcoming staff members, great food, great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The four times I have been at this restaurant are all memorable. The food is great at low prices, and I love the waiters. They are so nice. You just feel at home as you enjoy the great food and service. Every time I fly to Kenya, I just can't wait to get there and eat.

“friendly waiters and a cool environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

I enjoyed the serene environment delicious and healthy meals served by hospitable waiters. It is an enjoyable place that I would love to visit again. All staffs, from the entrance to the restaurant give you all the support you need. however the management need to ensure thorough security checks to ensure ill motivated people do not get access to this wonderful place.

“Always a favourite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Love the place - big, open gardens, friendly staff, good food. Live music in the evenings! There is the Karen Blitzen museum on site and well worth a look and a great shop selling souvenirs at a sensible price. We spend a lot of time here chilling out! The food is good - try the arrow-root nachos and the chicken Caesar salad!
