“In the end it has to be about the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My wife and I went to Seven on recommendation of friends but were quite disappointed in the food.
The Good: Nice atmosphere and great service. Onion soup was quite tasty.
The Bad: We both went for the steak and lobster. The steak, while having a nice taste, was small, 1/3 gristle, tough and dry. The lobster was just okay. Had a house red wine in a huge glass with barely any wine in it.
The ugly: Paid $100 for two people and left hungry.

“Seven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

When in a seafood restaurant - eat seafood. I made the mistake on my first visit to order meat - never, never again. The seafood is well worth coming back again and again.

“Lovely cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Went there for lunch with a friend;
1) The ambience and general outlook of the place is very nice and makes one relax especially for corporate staff who are in busy offices.
2) The service was execellent the staff are polite and professional they kept us upto date on the progress of our orders.
3) The food was lovely and the potions were very generous
4) Ordered French fries and steak and I must say this is one place that has lovely mouth watering fries. The steak was also lovely. I would recommend the food any day

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Wow. I travel often and love good fine dining. This place truly surprised me. Between the traffic chaos and building material everywhere in Nairobi, to find such a top class restaurant has really changed my view of what this country has to offer. The service, the food quality & presentation, the ambiance - everything just top class. Will definately be back !!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Gone to Sevens several times for a meal and for cocktails. The restaurant has a simple and elegant design. Staff are very friendly and the manager is very professional the first time I mistook him for the owner. The food is delicious and fresh and you have to try the cheese cake it is to die for. The bar area is cosy and tastefully done and great for a night out with the girls or an intimate date. Definitely going back again and again
