“Tranquil lunch setting amongst Nairobi chaos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2015

A calm amongst the chaos in Kenya- this garden is perfect for a tranquil weekend day when you want to relax and take a nice lunch amongst the garden's flowers and the shaded seating area. Fun Fact: Karen Blixon wrote Out of Africa! We showed up with 20 people for lunch on a Sunday and were able to get seated, but you may want to call ahead. For tourists- this is also a short drive from the Giraffe Center so you can plan around that if you like. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is that the a la carte menu took a really long time to cook (1.5 hours), so you may want to go buffet if you are in a rush.

“Kenya Is Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2015

This is a jewel, it is a preservation of history, culture and nature. The back ground music is splendour the staffs are clean and the facilities give you are reason to go back.

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2015

Very attractive grounds and a lovely cafe with a fairly complete menu. Food was good, service attentive and the price fairly reasonable. You could do much worse.
