We wanted all of the food to come out at once (appetizers and main course), however this wasn't the case; food arriving staggered. Still was very tasty food! Also; if the management team is reading this... I would recommend... More

I really enjoyed the ambience. Not much to report with regard to service, but it was pleasant enough. Ferocious-looking doorman let us stay a bit late to finish our bottle of wine. Nice additional touch was that someone threw a rock at our car as we drove away in an Uber taxi.

Went here for some mojitos, beers and food. The cocktails did not skimp on the alcohol and food was good! The decor was very rustic and cool, a very cosy and relaxed place to spend an afternoon.

It's one of the few bars and restaurants I frequent in Nairobi because it is one of the best. The food is nice and generally the atmosphere, particularly on weekends. The music collection is also something else! They always have a song I like playing. And when the in-house DJ is around, things go a notch higher. I frequent Havana... More
