4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is a very good restaurant located in a natural cave 10m beneath the ground..The service is awesome but the prices are kinda expensive compared to other cuisines in Kenya.
The cave has an open roof to see the stars and the moon while eating. Very romantic place too!

was very excited about this restaurant after the reviews but there was a mix up with the time, the service was incredibly slow and the food was undercooked.
