“Friendly service and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Centrine's friendly face was the first thing I noticed about the Pool Deck, she was very welcoming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon high tea on the pool deck. The cakes were delicious. Keep up the good work.

“Nice spot - away from the bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Located on the pool deck of the Stanley (same as the spa entrance), this is a little oasis in the middle of the city and a good choice for a quick meal - high enough above the bustle to give you some respite. They have a surprising selection of food and the staff are accommodating and helpful.

“The Stanley Pool Deck, Great Lunch Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

If you are looking for a nice lunch in the Nairobi central business district then this is one of the better options. The location on the Pool Deck of the Stanley is very nice and quiet( and that counts for something in Nairobi) and it is a very nice break from work. Fantastic salads, meat, fish and vegetable dishes. What makes eating out in Kenya a great experience is the fact that everything is always fresh, no ready made dishes here, everything is always prepared on the spot and Kenyans love and demand that. The quality of vegetables, meat and fruits is outstanding and everything is very well prepared. Your spoilt for choice
