Brilliant food, lovely atmosphere. There was a fantastic artist painting on the lawn. His artwork was all around and up for sale for a reasonable price.

“A good place to visit if you get fancied by history and literature and you are a Karen Blixen fan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2015 NEW

A good place to visit if you get fancied by history and literature and you are a Karen Blixen fan. It is located in karen-one of the most upmarket and beautiful estate of Nairobi. A guided tour of the compound is offered where you get to know a lot about Karen Blixen's life . Other famous tourist spots located nearby are Ngong hills, Nairobi National park, Giraffe Center and Mamba Village .

“Real Out of Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2015

A humble name but great place to eat at and enjoy the beautiful surroundings both inside and out. Even I would say nicer than the Museum. However a bit pricey to spend the night.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2015

It was a great experience with lots of information. Our guide needed to speak louder and more clearly but we learned a lot. Sweet and quaint. A great stop.
