“Good meals with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Sitting on the veranda adds to the ambience of this restaurant. The food was good with a good selection to cater for most tastes. The service was also very good.

“Good service in a spectacular setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I had a great lunch at the Norfolk hotel.

The service was swift and friendly from the moment we walked in.
The quality of the food was good as well as the setting.

The Hotel within with which the restaurant resides is very well put together and very well designed.

The valet service is a tad slow thought, but that may be due to Nairobi traffic.

“Soulless.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

It might have been just us but the place was just soulless. the nibbles were very good and the drinks (cocktails) were very well made. but it because of the lack of atmosphere this place loses out.
I would say it was not helped by a load of Americans trying to sell something to the dean of the university. All very odd. The grounds also seem to have nothing of the old charm
