“Nice setting but average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We were a big party and most people had steaks which did not all arrive as ordered and had to be sent back, as did my grilled prawns, 'don't play the raw prawn with me cobber' sprang to mind! The accompanying veg and chips were under seasoned and my side salad came undressed. However the service was attentive. It's a shame that a hotel like the Fairview can't get the simple things right in such a grand ambience

“a cool place for dinner in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

A lovely poolside restaurant, with tables under parasols. The evenings here are cool to warm and the staff will bring a small brazier to warm you if you wish. The menu is international, and the food is very good. Very helpful staff.
