We opted to overnight at the Aero Club before flying from Wilson Airport to the Mara and after a drink in the bar had the unexpected pleasure of dining in their restaurant.
The decor was reminiscent of the old East African days, a prop here, an engine there, some old fly-boy pictures on the wall, a fireplace and the garden, pool and Wilson Airport runway a heart beat away.
The wine selection rather good and very reasonably priced. We opted to share a bottle of red Chillean wine and it was super. The menu was fun and extensive and one look at the giant sized burger being assembled at the cook's station was too much for my husband. The combinations on offer were wicked and he ordered one with a side order of chips that would have fed a family. Verdict? Delicious!
I chose fresh Lamu crab with a ginger sauce from the daily selection written up on the board,. I have not eaten crab as beautifully prepared as this in a long time, the sauce was subtle enough to compliment the delicate flavours of the crab and it was fresh and fabulous.
Even our cheesecake dessert was pretty good.
All in all, given the chance I would have liked to sample many of the selection on offer, choosing was quite difficult.. The menu was innovative, the food freshly prepared in front of us, the waitresses friendly and the service great.
