“Same management as Carnivore restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Surroundings are good. However the meal are quite ordinary. Nothing special. Cottages has a small swimming pool. The service is not so bad but you can only go when you have enough time for waiting.

“Oase”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

If someone comes back from Nairobi without eating here or sitting in the garden that means you missed something. To my opinion it is an oase. The food is very good and the ambiance is just perfect.

“enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is an enjoyable and lovely place for lunch. You cannot beat the environment. The service is excellent and the food is very good. You get what you pay for and you should not be disappointed. I would certainly recommend it and would come back again. Reservations help, but they are very good at getting you seated.
