“The Carnivore Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

No visit to Nairobi is a visit without a meal at the world Famous carnivore restaurant. A walking of both traditional and Game meat is the centrepiece of delightful meal. Ostrich, Zebra Crocodile and others join the menu as the waiters expertly slice your selections onto a hot castiron plate. Served with soup, salads, Coffee and dessert, the meat keeps coming untill you surrender!! Herbivore welcome with vegetarian options. Advance reservation is suggested.

“No more Game meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It was a long time since I went to the carnivore, the place is still very pleasant, the service is good, quite noisy and very tourist oriented. Prices are very affordable, but now missing game meat except for the crocodile and the ostrich. A plae to visit if you are in Nairobi.
