“Lovely relaxing lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015

Stopped in for lunch with a tour group. The setting is very beautiful the menu varied with a good selection. I ordered the pumpkin coconut soup and bruschetta . The bruschetta was tasty, the soup not as heated as it should be and not as flavourful as I had hoped but still good.the bread was fresh and delicious. Lunch was average pricing. African Paintings were displayed throughout the gardens available for sale.

We had lunch here on a lovely August day. Outdoor tables allow one to appreciate the foliage while having a nice meal.

“Nice gardens weird place ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2015

The place is located in high class neighbor hood, the gardens are amazing if you like plants and the history of this women it's quite interesting, the house in my opinion has nothing special, and I really got annoy that they put so much interest in the movie "out of Africa" when this women has so much philanthropic history and clearly shows the love for Africa and its people, I must also say that we saw some of Karen's paintings and I think she was very talented worth looking for them.

“Great lunch, beautiful grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2015

Beautiful area, lots of flowers and birds, perfect for dining al fresco. Lunch here was very tasty and service great. A bar with good beer was a plus.
