“Pretty, but not much going on”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I was bored here.
It was a pretty place, but the tour went on too long, and I realized immediately that there was not enough history here to capture my attention.
I would have skipped this and spent more time on safari / on the beach in the south part of the country.

We were there for a nice lunch. The food was good and eating outside in the garden was nice with the good weather!

“Great ambiance and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Excellent food and lunch while we were visiting the elephant orphanage and several curio shops. A resident artist was showing and selling his creations. A wonderful time.

“Beautiful Setting and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We were not prepared for the non-commercial atmosphere at this beautiful restaurant which was originally Karen Blixen's plantation office. There is a great bar, but we sat at a table in the lovely garden. After 3 weeks on safari we were craving a cheeseburger, and were not disappointed! Their menu also includes salads and fish. Credit cards are welcome
