“CLOSED!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

This place was one of the best for steaks and such in the greater Nairobi area (it was in the Karen suburb).

Please be aware that it is now closed for good.

“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

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
