“A food lovers heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

This restaurant is everything you could wish for after a long, dusty drive from Samburu. Set in a picturesque garden on outskirts of Nanyuki town, this restaurant offers good food, good views and cold beers.
I went on one of their curry lunch days, which takes place every other Sunday. The food was great, the service was friendly and welcoming and the garden was a major plus. Get your Hunters ready when it rains as the car park gets a bit muddy...Before you leave, check out the Kenyan way of recycling with their wall made of bottles.
Curiously it is not signpost clearly, however look for signs to the Cottage Hospital and take the right hand fork before its entrance.

“Sunshine in the Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Cape Chestnut is not too easy to find, as it is not well marked, and the road can get muddy in the rain. But follow the large trees, and round the bend is the wonderful garden space of Cape Chestnut. Sit in the garden on one of the long tables, or inside which is homely and cosy, especially if the wood fire is burning in winter. The owners are often there at lunchtime and its open all day for either coffee, snacks or full meals. The food is wholesome, freshly cooked and always tasty. Perfectly cooked spicy chicken wings followed by home made vegetable soup was just right on an unusually cool evening. Thoroughly recommended.
