Here you feel like they know what they are doing. Probably its because of the time they have been around, may be I am wrong, but all in all its a lovely place to have a meal and endulge

“Best fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The restaurant is very nice. Despite being on a busy street, strategic placement of bushes and flowers make it quiet and pleasant, and somehow they make everything smell faintly of lemongrass, while the street 10 feet away smells... distinctly less nice.

I had the best fish and chips of my life here. They were not traditional - the fish was fried in fritters - but the batter was light and flavorful and the fish was lovely. Definitely recommended.

My main complaint is the cost. I spent 35 USD for fish and chips and a Tusker. Mostly I found this annoying because most everywhere else in Nairobi, menu prices include taxes, but here they were added, along with a service charge. Worthwhile for a rare treat, but not an everyday experience.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We arrived in a tropical storm which only added to the wonderful ambience of this classic hotel. We had lunch at the Lord Delamere - two of us had buffet, two had steaks. Met with smiles and classy presentation. Individual valets put behind our chairs for our jackets. Wine selection good - reasonably priced, quality SA whites produced perfectly chilled and presented. Food was faultless (for what it was). No drama with alacarte guest grabbing a buffet soup or sampling some buffet fare. Difficult to leave. Valet parking made it easier in the heavy rain. Highly recommend.

“Decent, If You're Staying at the Fairmont”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2010

Lord Delamare Terrace is the restaurant at the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel. The breakfast buffet is above average, but not stellar. The cooked-to-order food for lunch and dinner is relatively tasty - nothing to write home about, but we ate there for several days whlile staying at the hotel, and most of the food we ate was tasty and well prepared. Prices were predictably high, as it's at Fairmont, and I can't imagine going out of my way to go here if I wasn't staying there, but while at the hotel we were satisfied.
