“Relaxation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Fantastic setting, obviously an old Kenya home transformed into a restaurant. Very relaxed and laid back.

“Great place to relax but food overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Beautifully decked out, the restaurant boasts splendid decor and great service though I did struggle with over salted dinner.

“Great outdoor setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

A lovely outdoor setting with decent food for good value. Far enjoy afternoon meal and drinks in the lush gardens & patio over an evening meal though. Food & service are good though. The "barn" is a great spot to catch a major sporting event and the staff are friendly. Just check with staff when it is open.

“Delicious food alongside some lovely gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012 via mobile

Tasty food - recommend the deep fried camembert cheese and the stuffed cheese samoosas - divine. Lovely gardens so great for kids who don't wanna hang around the folks. Service was pretty quick and oprice reasonable. Will go back for sure
