“Chocolate brownies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

November 2013 was our fourth visit to Kenya and we lunched at Tamambo Karen Blixen twice during our stay.
The food and service have always exceeded our expectations, James was our waiter at our last visit, he was courteous and attentive.
On our first visit we had a chocolate brownie, one between two, and considered it to be the 'best chocolate brownie IN THE WORLD'. On each subsequent visit we have made a point of sharing a brownie.
The artwork displayed by the artists in residence, was an added attraction, and we bought a painting from each of them.

“Not worth the entrance fee”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

This was another disappointment and uninteresting for us. It's nothing more than a house, and we didn't want to pay to go inside so just took a few pictures of the grounds which weren't anything special either.

“I'd skip this place unless you want a relaxing but expensive lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

We didn't take the tour - just had lunch, which was good and relaxing but expensive. I would skip this place and spend more time on safari or doing something else.

“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.
