It amazingly located and serves amazing coffee and food. The interior is very sophisticated and well crafted. It is highly recommended for family/ friends.

This is a charming atmospheric restaurant but I didn't think the food was all that great and it was expensive. Wouldn't go back.

Lovely food on a veranda Delicious Peri Peri prawns, lovely crayfish. Service slow, but food was fabulous, colonial outpost, reminder of Kenya in the good old days.

This was a nice, refreshing stop after my jaunt to Nairobi National Park and I enjoyed the food and the hospitality offered by the staff here. The relaxed gardens were also very lovely.

This museum site is well preserved in honour of Karen Blixen. Really nicely done! Beautiful gardens. A great spot next door too for a bite to eat, or a grand buffet! The area is fantastic!
