“A nice place out of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Its a beautiful place tacked out of town from the every day hustle and bustle!! The environment has a country side feel and the beauty of it is crowned by a bridge that you need to cross.

We enjoyed was there for a team building function.

“Very nice setting in panoramic colonial house on top of an escarpment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

The view from the terrace is what makes this place special. You have to pass a bridge suspended over an escarpment and a river to reach the restaurant from the parking lot and the terrace offers a view on a rocky cliff with a river at its bottom. The place is just on the border with Nairobi national park, in a colonial style house, offering accomodation, paintball and team building activities in an area which was once used for polo. The food was in my opinion very good, tasty, fresh, well presented and correctly priced (less than any decent restuarant you can find in Nairobi different Malls). The location is few minutes away from the Sheldrick's elephant trust, so it could be a nice idea to stop over for lunch after the morning show over there.
