We stopped here for a lovely lunch after visiting the Karen Blixen Museum. Our lunch of duck was beautifully prepared, & presented, service perfect, beautifully appointed in the old colonial manner. Visited the lovely gift shop and wandered in the grounds.

This place is very nice, upscale venue. The service and food was great. This place is great for dates, meeting and simply hanging out. I would definitely return for shrimp and mashed potatoes.

We visited for lunch and sat outside in the delightful garden, a very pleasant setting. The food was of good quality but the service a little slow, and not particularly busy when we visited.

After a great visit at the Elephant Orphanage my wife and I stopped by the Karen Blixen Cafe for lunch. It has wonderful ambiance with outdoor tables situated throughout the nicely maintained grounds. Service was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive. The menu while not extensive, was varied enough to please most palates. Overall it was a very pleasant lunch and... More

Oh! My! What a beautiful experience. Our server was fabulous. The food was delicious, and the restaurant is in a gorgeous setting. We sat outside on the covered porch and enjoyed a local artist's rendering of local African scenery and African animals. I hope to return!

As part of our full day tour around Nairobi, we visited here for a lovely sustaining lunch. A 3 course meal was provided in a beautiful garden setting. It was a bit cool and some people were provided with a small charcoal burner to keep warm.

We stayed two nights here which were quite nice. The room was spacious, had a fireplace and comfortable beds. Clean and pretty grounds with a nice pool although wasn't warm enough weather for us to enjoy. We enjoyed breakfast in the eating area by the pool where a very sweet lady attended our needs. Eggs cooked right there however you... More
